RIM is the last company you’d expect to produce a sexy mobile device when their large, utilitarian Black Berry devices have filled their device portfolio for years and have earned them cult status and the “Crack Berry” name to go with it.
As life would have it, RIM surprised us with the Black Berry Pearl 8100 smartphone that’s not only smart but fashionable and flashy enough to compete in today’s mobile market where mobile phones also function as personal style accessories. 1.97 x 0.57 inches with a shinny black plastic housing and gun-metal silver side accents, the Black Berry Pearl can compete with the Nokia 8801 (OK, almost) or the Motorola SLVR L7 when it comes to fashion, yet it’s a phone with brains.
The keys on the Pearl have more of a rocking motion than any other phone number pad or QWERTY keyboards we’ve seen and the keys are physically larger than those of the Treo or the Black Berry 8700.
