Excerpt: As a Verizon subscriber and previous Blackberry curve user, I was very excited when they announced the new Blackberry - RIM Bold 9650 Tour2 Smartphone. I was happy to see the upgrades of a track pad versus the track ball, a camera with a flash, and wi-fi capabilities. The Bold 9650 did not disappoint. The screen is sharp with great colors and contrast, even with the optional privacy screen protector.
Excerpt: The 9650 Bold is a great phone overall. The keys have a great feel. The battery lasts much longer than my other blackberries I have owned. i switched from the 8520 - do even think of getting that model - nothing but problems over and over.
They finally got it perfect! Well just one little complaint
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Blackberry finally got the phone perfect! This phone is fast, sleek, easy to use and the touch pad is amazing. This phone no longer has the lag that the 9630 had and this is a huge plus for those of us that were really annoyed with that. I was really surprised that I liked the trackpad as much as I did. I thought it would be out of control and go too fast. As it turns out, after using it I now think the trackball is too slow.
Excerpt: While this phone is more expensive than the regular Blackberry Curve, it's definitely worth it. The camera is incredible quality - just as good as my regular camera! There is a memory card so you can store and transfer tons of data including music, photos, contacts and videos. You can write documents on it, and the phone comes with apps like Twitter and Facebook that you just have to activate.
Summary: My wife had just upgraded to the 9650 and a week later it was unavailable. I was happy to find myself a new one on Ebay. I don't want a super phone that does everything but bake cookies, thats why I'm pleased with BlackBerry. This model is heavier than my old outdated BB and just feels good in my hand.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Blackberry 9330 and its amazing and well worth the money! It has a nice weight to it, the battery life lasts longer and it's just overall a better phone, for what is it.
Summary: This is by far the best phone I have ever owned. I don't need apps on a phone to keep me busy (I have an ipad2 for that). Crisp sound quality and minimal battery use when connected to my wifi. Would recommend this pone to anybody needing a solid phone.
