    The pearl isn't all that it's cracked up to be. I disrecommend that model completely.

    IF you are going to get a BlackBerry get the 8800 the Pearl doesn't even come close the usability of 8xxx series.

    My 8700c is shorter than the Pearl but it is a little wider the volume is roughly the same.

    With that width you get a QWERTY keyboard which makes typing twice as fast (for me personal I never got into the txt slang)

    Plus the 8800 has GPS capabilities & Removable memory (Micro SD)

    Sorry to say but I went through 7 pearls in about 4 months with T-mobile. 6 black models and 1 white one. All of them had some issues with the speakerphone or the regular earpiece speaker, but the last one had memory errors with saving pictures or contacts.

    I just got my E62 in as a replacement and I am the happiest person in the world with IMAP4 support unlike the blackberry which had crap IMAP support. I'm waiting for the iPhone myself but lets hope it's perfect when it comes to IMAP (non Yahoo style).

    It is highly unlikely knowing Apple - tat isn't even taking account that US cell service providers hate unlocked phone and gouge you if you really want want with out fighting.

    I am not sure what you mean exactly - but I personally prefer the looks, interface, and limited but usable software (notes, calendar, contacts, etc). Compared to the Windows Mobile hones that are loaded to the gills with stuff I won't/don't care to use.

    All PDA mobile phones suck. The iPhone is the first mobile that I like. I'll definitely go for the iPhone.
