I have had a Pearl for almost 2 years, but I am always intrigued by the new devices coming out. I played with a Bold at the AT&T store the other day. The updates are nice, but I prefer my Pearl 8110 for the small form factor alone. I also like the non-grainy, smooth, tight trackball on the Bold. Now if RIM came out with a new Pearl with the Bold OS software, new browser interface, high resolution screen, etc, I would be all over it. What are the odds of this happening? And I am not talking about the Flip 820.
One centimeter wider?
I held one and it is much wider than a Pearl.
According to the comparisons page on blackberry.com, the Pearl is 1.97" wide, the Curve is 2.36" wide, and the 8900 is 2.4" wide. My metric may be off, but I think it is quite a bit wider. It's even wider than the 8320 Curve.
