Ever since I was a wee girl with a first-generation iPod, a three-megapixel digicam, a clunky cellphone and a ginormous laptop (OK, I wasn't that wee--it was like four years ago), I've lusted after a gadget that could do everything and take up next to no space. I mean, wouldn't it be amazing to be able to shoot and store photos, surf the Web, check e-mails, and listen to music files on one device small enough to slide casually into a back pocket? Yes. Yes it is amazing, because I'm doing it right now, using the new BlackBerry Pearl, which officially hits the market today. True, there have been other devices before this one that have integrated my wish list of technologies, but the Pearl is by far the most elegant and tiny version I've had the pleasure of using.
