At first glance this phone, no different from other candybar phones. It is small, quite thin, with a choice of black metallic alloy material between the plastic and metal combination on the back cover makes the phone feel rough when gripped. Curves like waves on the numeric keypad adds to the overall unique look of this series. RIM provide this series with SureType technology that allows users to feel more comfortable with the keypad. This is evident when it is used to send instant messages, numeric keypad feels more comfortable.

Through an optical trackpad navigation, we can more freely explore the various menus with ease. Trackpad sensitivity is equivalent to other series such as the BlackBerry Onyx or Gemini.

There is a direct button to play music on the side of the phone like the one on the BlackBerry Gemini. By appearing as a candybar phone, automatic reading room on the screen is not as large qwerty phone. But, with a high resolution of 360 x 400 pixels, the various menus on the screen that may arise with crystal clear quality.




Though small, the BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 has been equipped with a 3.2 Mpix camera with flash. Besides taking pictures, the camera can also be used to record video with VGA resolution at 30 fps. A number of complementary features such as camera flash operation setting, autofocus, geotagging to ‘mark’ the location of the objects we snapped.

Equipped with 3G connectivity, this phone is a fairly reliable way to access the various sites. With the default web browser from RIM, we can explore with features like the last page, history, refresh, to set the encoding. A variety of Internet-based applications can also be installed as easily as Facebook, Twitter, until BlackBerry Apps. In addition to connecting with 3G networks (HSDPA / HSUPA), the phone also has the facility to connect to the internet via WiFi. Wi-Fi settings is also very simple, with exploration into the connection and manage the menus to set up a WiFi network.
