I made my switch to the Pearl from a 'Q'. I' have previously owned the 7250 and 7100 from RIM. I prefer full QWERTY however design makes a huge impact on my decision . The Pearl offers the power of any BlackBerry device with nice little perks including media player and external memory. I have really no need for a camera. I don't take my pics with my mobile device. I have a 7.0 MP Sony digicam that fits in the palm of your hand (DSC T10) and is as thick as the Pearl in fact). The only issue (personal) that I have witht he Pearl is sure-type. The Pearl minus the cam, with QWERTY and wi-fi....is the Crimson. This looks like the ideal device. Still a few months away for Rogers users (4 to 6 mos??). I give the Pearl an 8 out of 10. And as a previous member said, the sure-type seems to get it right 80% of the time (in English anyway). I also type in French and Italian (gets it right about 60% of the time).
I tried being 'Bold', honest.
