RIM Blackberry 8100 Pearl

O2, Orange, Vodafone

• Styling: nice weight, good feel, fits in a pocket, and still does all the BlackBerry things
• Decent extras – built-in mapping for contacts, scrollwheel replaced by a trackball, lots of clever shortcuts
• Excellent call and audio quality


• 20-button keyboard takes some getting used to (but then it’s easy)
• Glossy case gets smeared easily with fingerprints
• May be a bit large for some female hands

One for the working girl: a BlackBerry with style at last
