Posted in BlackBerry,Mobile Phones,RIM,Smart Devices,Verizon by Darrin Olson on January 24th, 2008

Pink BlackBerry Pearl from Verizon WirelessThe BlackBerry Pearl has been coming out in a number of new colors lately and we had heard earlier this month that the latest will be this new pink model with Verizon. We knew it was coming soon and today Verizon Wireless along with Research In Motion (RIM) announced that the Pearl in Pink is coming to Verizon stores and online starting tomorrow (Friday).

Gone are the days of smartphones lacking style and color according to Verizon as they describe the pink BlackBerry Pearl 8130 as “chic and sophisticated”, and it still packs all the same communication features of it’s bland siblings and Verizon’s tools via the EV-DO network. The pink version, just like the others can browse the web with the Verizon wireless broadband connection, has a speakerphone, 2 megapixel camera, media player, external microSD memory card slot, wireless Bluetooth and that not-quite-QWERTY keyboard.

The new Facebook application from RIMThe new Facebook application from RIM will send out a ping with new notifications and messages and also allow you to scroll through them just like you do in regular email. Plus, the photo upload tool is integrated into the camera and photo software.

You can pretty much do almost anything you can on Facebook, thanks to the onscreen icons. With a touch of your finger, you will be able to invite people to join Facebook and accept new friend requests. Just like that it’s done. No adding them later after you’ve gotten home and forgotten everything. Of course you can also poke someone and write on a Wall.

BlackBerry Pearl 8100 SmartPhone

Posted in BlackBerry,Mobile Phones,PDAs,Smart Devices by Darrin Olson on September 7th, 2006

BlackBerry PearlResearch In Motion has come out with a new BlackBerry called the Pearl. The Black Pearl sounds familiar, but I cannot imagine pirating has anything to do with this.

Anyway, this smartphone is smaller than BlackBerry’s previous devices, which have been just a little on the bulky side lately compared to similar gadgets, so I guess this was probably due. You can see by the photo that to shrink down the keyboard, there are two letters per button. It has a small “pearl like” trackball navigation that is supposed to set a new standard for a new generation of “ease of use” interfaces.
This ads another quad-band smart device to the list of recently released devices and this one is going exclusively to T-Mobile.

The BlackBerry Peral can handle 10 email accounts and 4 instant messaging (IM) networks with an internal mapping program (no GPS) and …
