BlackBerry Bold 9930 review

 

It's been something of a long time coming, this emboldened Bold. We got our first glimpse of the thing in February, spent some quality time with it back

Solid design ; Snappy performance ; Battery life

Small display ; BlackBerry 7 already feels dated ; No LTE

The best embodiment of what BlackBerry is today, but it's just not up to snuff with the rivals of today.

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9930 (Sprint)

 

The BlackBerry Bold 9930 on Sprint is as classy-looking as ever, but RIM needs a new operating system and much better apps in order to stay competitive.

Sleek design. Sharp screen. Sublime QWERTY keyboard. Unlocked SIM card slot for overseas travel.

No 4G. No mobile hotspot mode. Few compelling apps available.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The Bold 9930 is a great music player, but just a so-so video player and camera. First, the music part: there's a standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot that accepts 32GB...

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9930 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Despite its classy design and fast CPU, the BlackBerry Bold 9930 for Verizon is essentially a middling attempt to keep RIM afloat ahead of its long-delayed QNX software platform.

Thin, sleek design. Sublime QWERTY keyboard. Very sharp screen. Faster CPU makes a real difference. Excellent battery life.

Expensive. No 4G. Balky app store lacks compelling programs. Archaic BlackBerry OS is largely unchanged, even in version 7 guise, and is slated for extinction anyway. MicroSD card is buried behind the battery.

I wish I could say the same about BlackBerry App World, which is Research In Motion's single biggest problem right now. It's slow to load, difficult to browse, and full of mediocre apps that are generally clunky and not as powerful as their iOS and...

BlackBerry Bold 9930 (Verizon Wireless) review

 

The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the best BlackBerry Bold we've ever seen, full stop. Indeed, it's clear to us why RIM sees the Bold 9900 series as the flagship brand of its latest line of OS 7 handsets. Sure, the Torch 9810 has that slide-out keyboard and...

The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9930 has a wider and thinner design and is exceedingly well-made. It boasts stunning graphics, a new touch-screen display, an amazing physical QWERTY keyboard, a faster 1.2GHz processor, and the new BlackBerry OS 7 that brings...

The BlackBerry Bold 9930 doesn't have the best call quality, and we think its price is too steep. The OS 7 user interface is not that different from OS 6.

The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the best QWERTY BlackBerry to date, but should be priced lower.

BlackBerry Bold 9930 review

 

The BlackBerry Bold 9930. You've got to hand it to RIM — the company may be spinning its wheels, but it's certainly not sitting still. While we've been hearing rumors and seeing leaked photos for some time, Research In...

Gorgeous industrial design ; Best-in-class physical keyboard ; Speed and graphics performance greatly improved

BlackBerry OS is dated and clunky ; Software selection is abysmal ; Cramped display can be troublesome

This is a die-hards-only phone, one of the last of its breed

BlackBerry Bold 9930 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The backlit QWERTY keyboard is just fabulous. The keys still aren't separated like on a Curve. But they're even larger than before, and their well-tuned feel and response makes messaging about as close to a pleasure as it can be on a phone.

BlackBerry Bold 9930 Review

 

RIM 's on familiar ground with the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. QWERTY candybars have made the company's reputation, and while the Torch series - whether slider or all-touch - may offer interesting variations on the theme, the Bold is where the Canadians...

As with the Torch 9810, there’s a sense that the Bold 9930 is RIM’s answer to criticism of previous Bold devices. Users wanted a spacious keyboard in the style of the original 9000, as well as a more premium-feeling chassis, and that’s just what...

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9930 Review

 

This time around, rather than concocting a totally new smartphone from the ground up, RIM is summoning up some inspiration from past memorable devices. Ladies and gentlemen, without further adieu, they bring to us the iconic looking BlackBerry Bold...

BlackBerry Bold 9930 Review – Verizon Wireless

 

The new BlackBerry Bold 9930, and the Bold 9900 series have been along time coming. A lot has changed in the smartphone landscape since the Bold 9700 series first landed. Over the course of the past two years, RIM has earned many more faithful...

Excellent form-factor and build quality, excellent display, great performance with smooth and responsive OS, great social media integration + messaging experience

Not a 4G device, slow web speeds, some reception issues, needs to be priced more competitively

Because of its great form-factor, excellent keyboard and display, superb messaging and social media integration, great multitasking and peppy performance, the latest generation of the Bold is the best BlackBerry ever. However, battery life on the Bold...
