Blackberry is not exactly a brand name that is naturally associated with the word “fun”. Since they started manufacturing high quality smart phones, RIM has always gone for functional, business oriented smart phones that carry a spacious QWERTY keyboard.

However, with the BlackBerry Pearl 9105, the company is out to prove that they are also capable of giving a compact, user friendly smart phone offering. There are lots of cheap mobiles being offered online, including many gorgeous BlackBerry Pearl contracts at some really great prices.

The Pearl may be small in size but it is certainly packed with features. It gives consumers all the benefits to be expected from a Blackberry handset while deviating from the norm and offering a slew of multimedia centric features. For web surfing, the device has the ability to connect to 3G as well as Wi-Fi networks.

It has social networking features as well as a 3.2 megapixel camera with video recording capabilities for those who like keeping their friends a mere click away.

Stylishly Compact

The keyboard-less BlackBerry Pearl 9105 is certainly one of the most compact units in its family. It is only 13 mm thick which means that it is easy to slip inside a pocket or a hand bag. It is light at only 95 g as well, so no hands will cramp up even with prolonged use.

The handset’s profile is on the curvy side so it is ergonomic to use. A flush keypad, optical track pad and SureType predictive text technology make up for its lack of a full QWERTY keyboard. To make things even more convenient for the avid media user, dedicated shortcuts on the unit’s side gives fast access to the camera and voice functions.
