BlackBerry Bold 9780 - Best BlackBerry Yet

 

What do you say about a smartphone that's not radically different from a great predecessor, but comes with cosmetic changes, 256 MB of extra memory and a camera that can shoot larger pictures? As one smart aleck pointed out on Twitter and in far less...

Weighing in at 122 grams, this BlackBerry smartphone also has a much improved, finer leather finish on the back cover that blends in well with the rest of the device, as compared to the back cover on the Bold 9700, which to put it mildly was a bit of...

BlackBerry Bold 9780 review: Business as usual

 

It's no surprise that the BlackBerry Bold 9780 is the next logical evolutionary step, rather than a complete makeover that will propel it into the same league as the iPhone and Android. RIM has a loyal core of customers whose bond with the brand goes...

Enhanced email and data security via BlackBerry services ; 2.44" 65K-color TFT landscape display with a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels ; Hardware four-row full QWERTY keyboard ; Quad-band GSM support and tri-band 3G with HSDPA ; Wi-Fi connectivity ;...

BlackBerry Internet Service account is a must to enjoy all phone features ; Outdated and unintuitive camera interface ; No FM radio ; No video-call camera ; No built-in accelerometer

BlackBerry Bold 9780 (white, T-Mobile)

 

The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 updates the popular Bold series with BlackBerry OS 6, bringing with it such improvements as a more-capable browser, enhanced multimedia capabilities, and a refreshed interface. It's a good device to be sure, but we'd be...

The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 ships with BlackBerry OS 6. The smartphone offers double the flash memory and a higher-megapixel camera than the Bold 9700. There's also support for Wi-Fi calling

Hardware isn't much different from the Bold 9700

The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a solid messaging smartphone and ships with the latest BlackBerry OS, but it's not necessarily worth the upgrade.

BlackBerry Bold 9780 (T-Mobile)

 

The 9780 features Wi-Fi calling, and the implementation on T-Mobile's BlackBerries is higher quality, but less flexible than on Android phones. I've found calls made over Wi-Fi on BlackBerries to be clearer than calls on Android phones, and...

Solid voice quality. Sharp screen. Wi-Fi calling. Syncs locally with PCs

Few apps. Poor Exchange support for consumers

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a solid, portable messaging smartphone, but it's behind the times in a few key ways.

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 Review

 

Following up after the impressive Bold 9700, which was released around this time last year, its successor in the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 surely has its work cut out for itself. Now that BlackBerry OS 6 is starting to become more prevalent amongst...

Blackberry Bold 9780 is not a bold update

 

Reviewers agree that the BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a solid phone, but most also say that it's not worth the upgrade for users of the Bold 9700 (*Est. $110 with contract). Sascha Segan at PCMag.com says T-Mobile subscribers who want a no-nonsense...

Comes with BlackBerry OS 6, excellent battery life, better browser than older BlackBerrys, can make calls over Wi-Fi network

Design is almost identical to BlackBerry Bold 9700, oS 6 works better on touch-screen display, small screen, can't play high-definition videos

Expert review by:

BlackBerry Bold 9780

 

BlackBerry's Bold is still a great business smartphone but there's very little to differentiate it from its predecessor

If you own the previous version of the Bold pass this by. If not and you're in need of a business phone with push e-mail and solid web functionality, the 9780 is worth your money.
