The Pearl reviewed

by Volker Weber

The Register also seems to like the Pearl:

Think of everything you'd like when you're out and about, then squeeze it all into a super slinky handset and you've got the Pearl. ....

Pearl is the best BlackBerry yet. Full stop. It does everything RIM is famous for - seamless email and communication - and packs it into the same space as a normal mobile phone. Throw in the easy-to-use roller ball navigation and a built-in camera and it covers all the bases. If you want everything on the go, and want it now then the Pearl is currently the only handset on the market that ticks all the boxes.

Are you going to buy one yourself when the device is launched here in Germany in the coming weeks?

Abdelkader, I would, if I needed to. But I get more phones than I can possibly use. I eventually return them all, some very swiftly, some not.

Thanks for the clarification ;-)
