BlackBerry Pearl

It used to be that you had to choose between having a phone that was small or one that delivered your e-mail, opened attachments, and accessed the Web. The 4.2-by-2-by-0.6-inch Pearl is the long-overdue blend of the two, only better. Unlike average PDAs, it has a flash camera, a music player, a memory- card slot, instant-messenger programs, and a gloriously spacious color screen. $200; t-mobile.com
