BlackBerry Pearl on Vodafone New Zealand

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 5-Dec-2006 12:56

I am just back from the Vodafone offices where I was formally introduced to the BlackBerry Pearl. I will be getting one of these devices to test, but this time (unlike the time I had the BlackBerry 7230 around), I will use the Enterprise Server, instead of the Internet service option.

This is how it works: for a single licence you no longer have to buy the server software. Just download from the RIM site, install on your server and configure it to work with your Microsoft Exchange Server. If you have more than one user then you can purchase additional licences, with an one time fee for a block (something about $699 for 5 users I am told).

The Vodafone fees are $49 for 3MB, which should be ok for e-mail only. Also this is not a 3G device, so that should discourage anyone to browse web sites on it.

The unit seemed responsive, and with good nice screen. Let's see how it behaves with my Exchange Server for this test.
