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.
Excerpt: Blackberry is what many would consider the king of smart phones. The large masses might not be impressed by their kind of phones, but these aren’t made for those who want to use fancy headphones and play games and movies on them — this doesn’t mean you can’t.
Conclusion: In the end, various minor shortcomings aside, the Blackberry Bold is by far the sweetest smartphone RIM has created. If you’re hooked on so-called “crackberries” or just want to upgrade to a mobile phone that offers the best of best worlds (think boardroom meets bad ass), hey… Congratulations –...
Pros: Sleek design; speedy 3G network; robust media offerings
Cons: Clunky web browser; average photo quality; expensive; various design quirks
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.
Excerpt: This might be a shocker out there to many, but we do actually, you know, not leak things from time to time. What’s important here, is that we’ve been rockin’ a BlackBerry Bold for around a month now, and we’ve got a great handle on the unit.
Summary: T he BlackBerry Bold 9000 is a mobile phone with not only a beautiful design, but also fantastic BlackBerry functionalities. The large, crystal-clear widescreen monitor offers a perfect reproduction of many file formats.
Excerpt: The Blackberry Bold , or Blackberry 9000, is the most hyped and anticipated Blackberry ever. The Bold is RIM’s attempt to merge an evolved Curve into something exciting and new and targeted for general and professional use or, as it is now called, the prosumer market.
