BlackBerry Bold 9000 review: Berry with guts

 

There we go folks, it's a BlackBerry grand slam at the arena and we're set for another ride with RIM's finest. We guess this here Berry is neither Curve-hot nor Storm-inventive but it's Bold enough to say little and...

2.6" 65K-color TFT landscape display with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels ; Comfortable four-row full QWERTY keyboard ; Quad-band GSM support and tri-band 3G with HSDPA ; Wi-Fi and built-in GPS and BlackBerry maps preloaded ; 2 megapixel camera, LED...

No email support without BlackBerry Internet Service account ; Mediocre camera ; No FM radio ; The web browser is unstable when browsing through Wi-Fi ; No video-call camera

Moreover, the Bold 9000 is hardly a groundbreaking device outside the BlackBerry world but to Berry buffs it may be about as good as a mobile phone gets. Sporting flawless connectivity, a magnificent screen and one of the most comfortable QWERTY...

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 (AT&T)

 

RIM's BlackBerry Bold finally hits the U.S., and it's the best phone for business on AT&T.

Luxurious feel. Beautiful, ultra-high-resolution screen. Integrated Office document editor. Solid camera.

Web browser shows some rough edges. No mainstream IM client.

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 (Rogers Wireless)

 

RIM's drop-dead-gorgeous BlackBerry Bold 9000 is the keyboarded smartphone to beat.

Luxurious feel. Incredibly sharp screen. Integrated Office document editor.

Expensive. Currently available only on Rogers Wireless in Canada. Web browser shows some rough edges. HTML e-mail requires server upgrade. ; Watch Our Exclusive BlackBerry Bold Video!

BlackBerry Bold 9000

 

The Bold is what BlackBerry fans have been waiting for. It's feature-rich and sharply designed, let down in small measure by some cumbersome software.

Beautifully designed, Class-leading QWERTY keyboard, Simple email set-up, Excellent battery life

Some included software, including the browser and maps, needs work, BlackBerry service accounts are expensive

BlackBerry Bold 9000 Review

 

Recently entered on the touchscreen smartphone market, RIM decided to give one more shot to its traditional smartphone lineup with no-touch displays. One of the last such devices was BlackBerry Bold 9000, which should've been one of the best in its...

Having all the latest technologies embedded into a BlackBerry device might seem awkward, as RIM is recognized for its conservative thinking (see Apple). HSDPA and Wi-Fi included in the same smartphone is one great feature. The 1500 mAh is also one of...

The only thing I was really concerned about was the sturdiness of the device, which is nowhere near its predecessors'. The somewhat high price could also become an obstacle to the phone's possible success in the market, but that could be explained by...
