Man -- I remember 3 years ago that the latest and greatest was something like the 7280. They have leaped forward quite a huge amount in consumer friendliness. Clearly, they are 'less behind' now than they used to be in 2004.

Though I suspect the Pearl is due for a makeover. I'd bet they have a redesigned candybar keypad device in 2008, as well as a touchscreen device in 2008.

The Curve 8310 has quite a lot going for it, so maybe take a look at it if you are tired of the Pearl. (The AT&T red colored Curve 8310 is really nice.)
