The camera is 3.2 MP camera, which is from a by gone generation, but for what it is, it does get the job done. If you have upload the pictures to Facebook and Twitter and you will not be let down on the quality.
One other noticable feature is the alpha numer key pad rather and a conventional QWERTY keyboard which BB seem to have. This allows the phone to be a regular candy bar rather than a "chunky" phone. The speaker phone is loud enough as well. The voice clarity is top notch as well.
The BB app world is being revamped and the developers are being wooed to get them to develop new apps, so on that level it lags behind Android and iOS. The apps currently are expensive, there are free apps though.
Otherwise the phone is simply awesome.
full marks, i'm very happy with my choice...i just hope i haven't cursed it by singing its praise just 2 weeks after purchase!
I chose this phone because the Pearl is the only Blackberry not to be oversized. Obviously this is to accommodate the qwerty keyboard, but this slimmer design is far easier to keep in the pocket without it spoiling the cut of clothing. It has Word, Excel and Powerpoint applications included which will work with Microsoft documents if saved onto the phone, and it soon becomes easy to see why people stay with Blackberry.
One thing potential newcomers to Blackberry should bear in mind is that you will need to change your SIM contract - you need to purchase a special five pounds per month add-on which is exclusive to Blackberry if you want their Blackberry messenger and email services, which are incredibly convenient to have. It's also the best way to get the GPS map application working - you'll never get lost again, and it's the only way to gain access to their App store. Very importantly bear in mind that some networks still don't offer this Blackberry add-on option: Talk Mobile don't, for instance.
The other minor niggle is that the picture on the item page clearly shows a phone with no network branding. I paid for a sim-free phone, but the one I received had an Orange logo on it, and had been unlocked. The merchant who sold it had broken the seals of the box in the pretense of checking that everything was working properly in order to do so. It also had some old files that a previous owner had downloaded, even though it had been sold as new, and the firmware is still showing Orange network, which is irritating. This isn't the same thing as a sim-free phone, and I suspect some sort of minor dodginess going on somewhere.

Brilliant little phone. Shame you needed your own home server and the brainpower of James Bond's Q to get email synching to it but that aside I'd probably still be using it had... Read morePublished 9 months ago by A. Tonkin
