We’ve spoke of it briefly, but now we’re seriously debating it. Will females adopt the Pearl as hoped? Well, the first “for girls by girls”-type review has surfaced (from the same folks who gave us that YouTube gem last week), and the reviewer says that the Pearl will look decent on the greater sex (we’re talking females, guys – lose the ego).
“Overall, despite it’s faults, I love the Pearl. It looks good, and it stops me getting that weird panicky feeling when I’m away from my computer for too long (I’m not a workaholic. I just hate missing anything).”
But seriously, both ladies and gents, what do you think? Will RIM and the BlackBerry be able to get a leg up in the female market (no pun intended – seriously), or will it fall flat while pink phones and teen-pop ringtones continue to rule the stereotype? We’ve heard from a certain writer’s significant other that she already hates the device because of the name, but what about the nuts and bolts ladies? Are you feeling the Pearl?
