RIM BlackBerry Bold 9930 (Verizon Wireless)

PC Magazine
20 October 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Sleek design. Sharp screen. Sublime QWERTY keyboard. Unlocked SIM card slot for overseas travel.
  • Cons: No 4G. No mobile hotspot mode. Few compelling apps available.

BlackBerry Bold 9930 (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 August 2011
  • Summary: The problem with the $249 BlackBerry Bold 9930 is that it's ultimate messaging phone that's priced like a high-end superphone. We love the sturdy and slim design, fantastically comfortable keyboard, solid voice reception, and long battery life.
