BlackBerry Bold Touch 9930 Review
27 September 2013
Excerpt: RIM used its 2011 BlackBerry World even in Orlando to unveil its latest CDMA phone, the fast and powerful Bold 9930. Thin and light, the new Bold will run the new BlackBerry 7 operating system, showcasing new social features and new hardware.
Excerpt: RIM's back in the spotlight with three new smartphones - one of which is the BlackBerry Bold 9930 . Available through Verizon for $249.99 (and coming soon to Sprint and T-Mobile), the Bold 9930 sports a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 2.8-inch touchscreen display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD...
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.
Conclusion: Sprint's version of the BlackBerry Bold 9930 is slightly different than its Verizon cousin, but the overall theme is the same: flashy, current-generation hardware, but yesterday's operating system and apps.
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.
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the successor to the original Bold and hopes to make an impact for Research in Motion (RIM). The once king of the smartphone market has lost its throne to the likes of the iPhone and Android, but does the updated Bold 9930 have what it takes to reclaim the coveted crown?
Excerpt: Earlier this month, Research In Motion (RIM) began shipping a new generation of BlackBerry smartphones running the brand new BlackBerry 7 mobile OS. The most anticipated of these new BlackBerry smartphones, the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, is currently available in the United States through Verizon...
Conclusion: We want to love the BlackBerry Bold and it’s latest OS 7. But in the end we end up merely accepting it. Accepting that this is the best RIM can do for now as a stop-gap solution. The hardware is certainly the best they’ve put out yet. And the software at least looks the part.
