Blackberry Pearl Too Small

Tried to use Pearl for a week or two and found the keys much to small for use, and the constant shift up sift down cumbersome to spell anything out with efficiency. Returned to unit and got the Curve which is much more user friendly from a business prespective.

Perfect little gadget!

I have had my Pearl 8110 for only 2 weeks, and I already understand the term "CrackBerry". It is everything I could want and more. I am very impressed with how easily and quickly I got acquainted with it. My use is primarily personal, but it would be great for business too. I'd never go back to a regular mobile phone! The keyboard is very easy to use and I like the SureType feature. Absolutely love the mp3 capability!!! And the size is great, more compact than many other smartphones. My only complaint is that I wish it came with a timer/stopwatch function (though this is downloadable for free). All in all, the perfect little device! Less
