So what is all the talk about people getting addicted to their BlackBerry??
If rehab is the first thing that comes to mind, think again, the new BlackBerry Pearl will send you to email hell and you might actually enjoy it!
BlackBerry Pearl (www.blackberrypearl.com) is the latest phone from the Canada based technology company Research in Motion (RIM (www.rim.com)). At $199 (from T-Mobile (www.t-mobile.com)), this is phone worth owning for all the features that it offers. Users of the old BlackBerry will instantly notice the absence of the signature scroll wheel, which has been replaced by a trackball which is pretty intuitive and easy to use once you get the hang of it. That’s not all that has changed. Moving away from just catering to its typical business users, the Pearl has new multimedia features that are designed to attract hipper style conscious users.
Weighing a wispy 3.2 ounces and a half an inch thick, the Pearl has new multimedia features that include a 1.3 megapixel camera, iTunes enabled mp3 player, MPEG video player, microSD card slot in addition to the 64MB flash memory. This adds to the other features of Web browsing, Email, and Organizer. An impressive feature is support for Google Maps.
If you are one of the 5 million users who like to be seen scrolling through messages on their BlackBerry’s and had hoped that you could do more with your phone than just make calls and check email, a shift to the Pearl might be well worth it. The rest should buy it at your own risk of addiction.
