BlackBerry Bold review


It's been a good six months since Research in Motion first announced the RIM BlackBerry Bold (aka RIM BlackBerry 9000). Originally slated for a summer release on AT&T , the launch date kept getting pushed back...and back. Frustrated with the delays and...

The Bold is a bit bulky and expensive. The Web browser isn't as easy to navigate as the competition.

BlackBerry Bold 9790 Review: Specs, Features and Price


BlackBerry Bold 9790 is a smartphone with touch screen and BlackBerry's traditional QWERTY keypad. It's a very nice mobile phone as its look is very professional and it suits all your business or professional needs. ...

It is a really good smartphone for the BlackBerry brand lovers but the other smartphones with iOS and Android operating system still wins the race.

BlackBerry Bold 9650 is an easy-to-use workhorse


With Version 5 of the RIM Blackberry operating system, the Bold ushers in a new set of features including a high-end, 3.2-megapixel camera with flash and 3G, Code Division Multiple Access or Wi-Fi capabilities.

Extremely small footprint; low power usage

No parts access; no upgradability

Expert Review


A fully-fledged smartphone that boasts excellent connectivity features and a keyboard that's very useable. The only issue is that the phone has fairly basic battery life especially when using its 3G connectivity.

Great LCD screen, attractive design, web browser formats pages quite well, WiFi and 3G support, swift performance

Basic battery life, random freezes, keyboard isn’t as nice as that of the Curve, camera isn’t the greatest

The best business smartphone for AT&T customers


The Bold is BlackBerry's first 3G smartphone, and reviewers agree that while it is a premium device aimed at corporate users rather than mass-market consumers, the Bold still packs enough multimedia functionality for both work and play. ...

Top-notch processor, gorgeous high-resolution display, roomy QWERTY keyboard, push email, wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth

Bulky, slow web browser, weak call reception, expensive

Blackberry Bold Review


If we were to sum it all up right now, then we would say that the Blackberry Bold is impressive but only for the people who the need these kind of features. For the younger crowds who want big touchscreens and loud PMP-phones, then there are cheaper...

Review: BlackBerry Bold


It's a powerful, capable and stylish addition, in fact. And it will fit the bill nicely for corporate and other business users committed to the BlackBerry platform and looking to upgrade.

That said, the iPhone does make it easier to input special characters used in Web addresses - period, slash, @ sign - by putting them right on the main (virtual) keyboard. With the Bold, you have to hold down the Alt/Shift key to get special characters.

AT&T is going release the BlackBerry Bold tomorrow, finally ending the long wait for this smartphone

I'll have a more complete review of this model available soon. This will include the features I didn't bring up in this one, like the Bold's GPS receiver and Bluetooth support, and more about its camera
