  • Pros: Excellent form factor. Razor-sharp screen. Wi-Fi calling. Good keyboard. Solid call quality.
  • Cons: Browser still needs help. Not a big jump up from earlier models.

PC Magazine
30 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The Bold 9700 is a smart, shrewd update to the wildly popular Bold 9000—and proof that there's still a place for hardware QWERTY keyboards for both consumers and business.
  • Pros: Near-perfect design. Beautiful display. Great voice quality. Robust media sync options. Excellent battery life.
  • Cons: Middling browser. Buggy video player. Lacks the T-Mobile version's unlimited Wi-Fi calling.

BlackBerry Bold 9700 Review: In Depth

Recombu
11 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The Bold 9700 feels much more like a consumer product than its predecessors, once you get past all the menus. Sure, it doesn’t yet offer the range of apps and the media features aren’t as honed as other devices out there, but it’s a great all-rounder for someone who wants a handset for playing as well as working hard.

  • Conclusion: In summary, the Bold 9700 is the fastest Blackberry to date offering all the features you could expect out of a QWERTY Blackberry device. While it excels the original Bold in every technical aspect, its the design of the original Bold that has somewhat left a legacy behind it which the 9700 cannot match. You’ll love the 9700 if you’re moving from a Curve but for the original Bold 9000 users, it might take some getting used to.
