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...

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 9000 gets a very early review


We're all about reviews of products before they're released, but reviewing something before it's even been officially confirmed by a company is its own special brand of magnificent. Granted, these are more like the hands-on impressions of a ...

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 (Rogers Wireless)


Though it has the best screen I've ever seen on a mobile device, I wish the Bold's display were a little larger. It packs the same resolution as the iPhone's display (320 by 480 pixels) into much less space: 2.6 inches diagonal (compared with the...

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

RIM's next-generation BlackBerry Bold 9000 does for the boardroom what the iPhone does for the rec room.

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 (AT&T)


Aside from QWERTY keys, there are Volume, Camera, and quick application-switching controls on the Bold's side, and a Mute button up top—typical BlackBerry fare. The MicroSD card slot is now on the side of the device, as opposed to under the battery....

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

Web browser shows some rough edges. No mainstream IM client

There's no doubt the BlackBerry Bold will win over the corporate crowd with its business focus and sharp looks; we just wish its Web browser were better.

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...
