The BlackBerry Pearl 3G smartphone had two of the best possible inspirations: the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone and the BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone. We wanted a handset that was true to the form of the original BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone, but brought in some of the high-end styling of the BlackBerry Bold smartphone line. Also key was how it felt in the hand: we wanted something that was comfortable and easy to use, particularly in one-handed situations, which is very popular with the younger demographic. Like both products, it combines power and elegance to deliver not only an attractive smartphone but one that can handle whatever applications the customer needs.
