The Black Berry Pearl has both Sure Type and multi-tap input methods.
Sure Type technology is Black Berry’s own version of predictive text that first appeared on the Black Berry 7100 series which was the first RIM product line to have two letters on a key.
Though shinny, the phone doesn’t feel very slippery and won’t slip out of your hand by accident.
The 2.2” display takes up a good portion of the front face, and below it are the menus keys and keyboard which have white backlighting.
The Cingular version of the Black Berry Pearl Gone is the beloved jog wheel found on the side of other of Black Berries; the Pearl has a flat track ball sitting in the center of the front face just below the display and it’s touch sensitive control that allows you to scroll up/down and left/right by brushing your thumb or finger over it.
