I have been a dedicated Pearl user for just over 2 years. I currently have an 8110. I love the Pearl for the small form factor. Not sure if I could ever use a full QWERTY device, although I have been intrigued by the Curbe 8900. SureType kicks butt. I am keeping my fingers crossed for an updated candybar Pearl with more memory, faster processor, high res screen, etc. I am not at all sold on the Pearl Flip. Fa get about that one!
