- Agree with you on all points.
I wouldn't slam a guy on buying a Pearl because it's feminine. I'd slam him because he has bad judgement. Why would any power user pick a Pearl over a Curve and if you are not a power user, why would you need a BlackBerry in the first place.
I've yet to find a Pearl user who really maximizes the use of their BlackBerry.
Pearls are for posers. Curves are for serious players.07-22-08 09:17 AM

- LOL, only the young.......Keeping it "real" would be saying that YOU don't like Pearls so YOU won't buy one. To say "I'm not calling a guy who owns a Pearl gay....but" is frankly, dishonest.
A REAL man does not feel the need to put ANY other man down for his choices.....so IMO, the fact that you feel the need to do so speaks more about your manhood than the phone you own.07-22-08 09:30 AM
- Lol I wasn't referring to you amazing, but I think I've spotted a few offended posts, but that is expected after a controversial post like this. But hey, it's just someone's opinion. Even if they say it's "The Gospel" ya know it's only an opinion.
Don't worry I didn't mean anything by that previous post07-22-08 09:37 AM

- Hey everyone. 2 points.
1. I had a pearl for about 3 weeks (black one on AT&T) and my mom actually commented on how girly it was. Luckily, AT&T introduced the 8300 Curve and I exchanged it immediately. I was not a fan of either the size of the phone or the suretype, and I love my Curve. I would only trade it in for an iPhone or Bold at this point.
2. There is more then one difference between the 8330 and all the other 83**'s OTHER then the fact 8330 is CDMA. The 8330 comes with WAY MORE memory then all other 83** series phones . This is NOT a software thing, this is a hardware thing considering the 8330 came out so much later then the other curves. I read a few posts of people not only questioning an 8330 owner for claiming more memory, but also mocking him.
He was NOT joking or making things up. His Curve has more memory then yours.
Back on topic- If Pearls are feminine, then 8800's are masculine.
Any girl with an 8800 must be butch.07-22-08 09:55 AM
- Well first of all, the bigger screen and qwerty keyboard are HUGE differences.
And you are never going to convince me SureType is anywhere near as effective as qwerty.
There was a similar post on this topic a few months ago. All the Pearl people went out of their minds ... in the end after sanity prevailed, they all admitted that SureType isn't as effective as qwerty.
If you are a serious power user, you are also going to get weary of that tiny screen. You have to admit that the Pearl was designed as a compromise device. They wanted to incorporate the functionality of a BlacKberry into a form factor that could compete with a Motorola.
I have nothing against you using a Pearl. But you're going to have an impossible time convincing anyone that you are a serious power user and that you prefer a smaller screen and a less effective keyboard to do your work.
The Pearl is fine. But it's nowhere as great as a Curve.07-22-08 10:01 AM
