Summary: The Bold continues BlackBerry's tradition of superb text/email-based mobiles, but now it's got HSDPA, GPS, a superb screen and - above all in style! If it wasn't for the two-meg camera we could have been looking at top marks.
Summary: A fully-fledged smartphone that boasts excellent connectivity features and a keyboard that’s very useable. The only issue is that the phone has fairly basic battery life especially when using its 3G connectivity.
Pros: Great LCD screen, attractive design, web browser formats pages quite well, WiFi and 3G support, swift performance.
Cons: Basic battery life, random freezes, keyboard isn’t as nice as that of the Curve, camera isn’t the greatest.
Summary: If we were to sum it all up right now, then we would say that the Blackberry Bold is impressive but only for the people who the need these kind of features. For the younger crowds who want big touchscreens and loud PMP-phones, then there are cheaper options. For the busy individual who needs to be connected all the time, access information and send e-mails, this is one of the best phones to do this. It's fast, accurate and almost glitch-free.
Summary: BlackBerry fans will fall in love with the Bold; it’s fast, sports a stellar display, and offers a great e-mail experience and near-perfect keyboard. Although it costs $100 more than the 8GB iPhone, the Bold is much more of a business-class device, whereas the iPhone has more consumer appeal. The $199, Windows Mobile–powered Samsung Epix directly competes with the Bold in that it offers a physical keyboard, 3G and Wi-Fi, and a touchscreen.
Pros: Sleek industrial design, Good call quality, Fast processor, 3G and Wi-Fi, Clean user interface, Improved camera,
