BlackBerry Bold 9930 review
30 January 2012
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold 9930. You’ve got to hand it to RIM — the company may be spinning its wheels, but it’s certainly not sitting still. While we’ve been hearing rumors and seeing leaked photos for some time, Research In Motion is finally about to release a slew of new products into the smartphone market.
Conclusion: Despite its classy design and fast CPU, the BlackBerry Bold 9930 for Verizon is essentially a middling attempt to keep RIM afloat ahead of its long-delayed QNX software platform.
Pros: Thin, sleek design. Sublime QWERTY keyboard. Very sharp screen. Faster CPU makes a real difference. Excellent battery life.
Cons: Expensive. No 4G. Balky app store lacks compelling programs. Archaic BlackBerry OS is largely unchanged, even in version 7 guise, and is slated for extinction anyway. MicroSD card is buried behind the battery.
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the best 'Berry yet. The 1.2 GHz processor, touchscreen/candybar combo, premium construction, and improved browser finally brings the brand up wto where it can effectively compete with Android and iOS. Even better, there's two other Torch models (9810 and 9850) with similar specs that will appeal to those that prefer different form factors.
Pros: Fast processor; web browsing is significantly improved; keyboard is fantastic.
Cons: Small display; battery life is poor; aging operating system still pales in comparison to Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.

It boasts stunning graphics, a new touch-screen display, an amazing physical QWERTY keyboard, a faster 1.2GHz processor, and the new BlackBerry OS 7 that brings augmented reality apps, 720p HD video recording, and more. We're also pleased with the photo quality of the 5-megapixel camera.
Cons: The BlackBerry Bold 9930 doesn't have the best call quality, and we think its price is too steep. The OS 7 user interface is not that different from OS 6.
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the CDMA version of the long-awaited BlackBerry Bold 9900. RIM’s latest device brings back the styling of the BlackBerry Bold 9000 in a much updated form. The revamped keyboard mixed with a touchscreen is a killer combination.
