Geeks.com may be best known for their discount computer components, but they also carry a variety of consumer electronics items, too. Cheap cell phones, PDAs, console gaming accessories, and televisions are just a handful of other items you can now find on their site.

This review is going to take a look at one of the cell phones they offer. The promotional image below shows a white BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone, much like the refurbished unit provided.

People often think that they have to get cell phones from the cell phone service provider, which isn't always the case. They will gladly sell you a phone, and perhaps even sell it to you at a 'discount', but in general you wind up locked into a calling plan for 2 years in the process. By buying an unlocked unit such as this BlackBerry 8100, you can simply move the SIM card from your current phone over to the new phone and be back up and running with minimal hassle.

The BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone is not a new model, but it is still quite a capable device that could prove to be a good upgrade to many people looking for more from their phone without getting tied down to a new contract. Before we take a look at the basics on the unit provided, let's take a look at some of the key features and specifications.
