Pearl voted winner by small businesses


While some lucky ducks got to attend MacWorld and CES, I had the pleasure of attending the Small Business Computing Excellence in Technology Awards. Alright, I’m kidding, but that was the forum for the BlackBerry Pearl walking away with an award for “Best Mobile Device”. The Small Business Awards are voted on by readers at

“If you have to stay in touch, why not do it with a little class? With 39 percent of the vote, your preference was the stylishly hip BlackBerry Pearl 8100 — a tasty offering that consists of phone, Internet browser, camera, multimedia player, organizer and e-mail capabilities.”

The Treo 700wx came in a somewhat close second with 25% of the vote. Way to go, Pearl.
