New Year New Phone.

Blackberry Pearl

 The age of Windows Mobile has ended here at Casa Carnell. In a final retrospect of Windows Mobile 5, I will say that the platform has tons of potential. However, there is lots of work that needs to be done to Active Sync to make it a more user friendly (and stable) experience. When considering a new phone, I wanted something far less “tweaky”. So far, I am really enjoying my experiences with my Blackberry Pearl 8130. Things are doing what many other platforms promise, they are “just working” to steal a line from Apple’s marketing department. I forgot how much fun noodling around a cell could be, and applications are a breeze to add, without the Incredible Disappearing App Trick that Windows Mobile 5 mastered.  I am sure I will post more reactions and thoughts on this phone over time, so stay tuned. If you are in the market for a smart-phone, I give it a full recommendation!
