The Blackberry Pearl 8110

The core functions of a blackberry
Push emails: The push-mail functionality is the core of a Blackberry. What is the difference to a regular e-mail service? A regular e-mail service asks whether e-mails are available at predefined intervals or, if so desired, at the e-mail box. This is done in the polling process, because the mailbox only provides new e-mails without delivering them. In push mode, the mailbox itself is active and pushes new e-mail directly to the e-mail client. With push email work now some smartphones and IMAP Idle also support more and more e-mail providers the push functionality.
Actually it does not make a difference for many customers, whether the e-mail is polled or pushed, because e-mail is (unfortunately) not regarded as instant messaging. What makes the push functionality of Blackberry so special?You can know more from MONTCHANINSTORES.

A distinction must be drawn between companies and private customers. Corporate customers can use Blackberry (Blackberry Enterprise Server) through their own mailserver. The upstream Blackberry server monitors the company’s e-mail server and redirects new emails to Blackberry’s Mobile Routing Center (MRC). These are servers, For example in London. There, the e-mails are processed, compressed and then sent to the mobile radio provider, which forwards the e-mails to the device. In addition to e-mails, contact data, calendar data, to-do lists and notes can also be pushed to the Blackberrys. In addition, the company’s administrator can block the stolen Blackberry in the event of theft and / or formatting a variety of other rights and locks.

Individuals without their own server use the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS). Here, external e-mail accounts are integrated and the incoming e-mails are forwarded in the same way as the e-mails of the corporate customers. However, there is not the possibility for private customers to synchronize calendar, contact or other entries with the Blackberry, here is only the e-mail push.

By compressing and preparing e-mails and attachments on the servers of the company RIM, the e-mails are delivered faster and more cost-effectively. Also due to the permanent online connection no block rounding is carried out after the end of each connection. All in all, a Blackberry is a very modest mobile phone, 5 MB is enough for hundreds of emails a month.Actually, you can then speak of a flat rate (referring to pure text mails).

The Blackberry Pearl displays PDF, Word, and Powerpoint attachments. This is also a merit of the Blackberry servers, which prepare the contents accordingly. Of course, editing is not possible, but for a brief look it is all the time.

Phone
Blackberrys also convince on the whole line. The reception quality is absolutely high quality, the voice quality also in areas with bad reception super. Thanks to Quadband, you are at home all over the world, GPRS and EDGE are also supported. The handling of the telephony is as with any other mobile phone also and even language commands are recognized without problems.

Multimedia
The Blackberry is no longer the newest one, you can clearly see the browser. The advantage is that the browsercontent is also processed in the Blackberry servers and therefore the display and speed are not of bad parents, at least for a GPRS device. The real Internet, as you know it from a smartphone with touch screen, is not.

The camera triggers with two megapixels, which is not bad for an occasional snapshot, but also no more. The MP3 player is quite ok, my 8 GB micro SD memory card is supported and together with a real 3.5 mm headphone jack makes the music listening fun. In case of doubt, it is also the integrated loudspeaker, as long as the volume is not exaggerated.
PIM
Personnel Information Management has solved RIM perfectly. The data can come from the Outlook Manager without problems or from a separate tool from Google directly from the Google Calendar or the Google contact manager. But I will write something separately.
The rest of the PIM functionality, such as calendar, notes, to-do lists, or contacts, is really good and practical. Here you can see that RIM has had years of experience with business telephones and then only entered the prosumery market. Manufacturers who work differently regularly fail at this functionality.

Conclusion
With the Blackberry Pearl 8110 RIM succeeds the step to the private customers who want to have e-mail functionality in the mobile phone format. Here the Pearl is absolutely super. The keyboard is initially somewhat habituationy, but who reads more e-mails than writes, the will hardly have problems with it. Unfortunately, all the good qualities of the Pearl have not been transferred to the first touch screen device from RIM, but with such a milestone as the Pearl, I am sure that RIM will make the change well. Pearl-small, practical, good and absolutely beautiful, even if you see the age in some places but then.
