Pinstack.com admin Hydn has put together a comprehensive guide to the BlackBerry Pearl’s new features. We thought it would be prudent to give you the Pearl’s full media specs here; see it all after the jump.
You can load and manage media files within these folders in the following ways:
— Use an expanded memory card (such as a MicroSDâ„¢ card) connected via Universal Serial Bus (USB) or Bluetooth wireless technology. Note: The expanded memory card can still be used as standard USB mass storage for the personal computer.
— Use the Media Manager application in BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.2 to transfer files between the smartphone memory and the personal computer.
— Use Bluetooth wireless technology to transfer files to and from a paired Bluetooth device.
— You can manage content that is downloaded using the smartphone browser.
