RIM BlackBerry Bold 9930 review - best BlackBerry yet
23 August 2011
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold 9930 (and its 9900 brethren) is one of three new smartphones from RIM that run the new BlackBerry 7 OS. Of the three, (the other two being the Torch 9810 and the Torch 9850/9860), the Bold is by far the most traditional BlackBerry. It looks like what anyone would expect a smartphone from RIM to look like, with its large portrait keyboard and smallish display. Under the hood, RIM has packed the fastest chips and most memory of any BlackBerry to date.
Pros: great hardware, awesome keyboard, fast processor
Conclusion: Without a doubt, if there’s one upcoming BlackBerry smartphone that’s worth picking up, it has to be none other than the BlackBerry Bold 9930 . Sporting that iconic design that exhibits some noteworthy iterative improvements, it’s absolutely the thing that RIM needs to focus on in order to remain relevant in this competitive space.
Pros: Premium feeling handset, Best portrait style keyboard on the market, Responsive platform experience, Global handset, Built-in NFC chip
Cons: Platform still feels dated, Sub-par photo & video capture, Pricey at $250 on-contract
