Video: My review of the Blackberry Bold 9700

December 8th, 2009

Here’s my review of the Blackberry Bold 9700:

BTW most of my reviews are in high definition so check that feature.

I liked the Bold 9000 and while it has been a long time since it came out chances were I’d like the 9700 as well.

Turns out it was true. Here are some of the improvements the 9700 brings ot the table:

  • trackpad (no more replacing trackballs)
  • smaller form factor
  • better build quality
  • slightly high resolution display
  • OS 5.0 (unless you upgraded your 9000 too)
  • 3.2mp autofocus camera

You do lose a stereo speaker and I guess you might not like the smaller size if you have huge hands.

You still get

  • good messaging capabilities out of the box
  • pretty snappy performance (with the exception of the browser)
  • very efficient multitasking
  • reasonably good integration between apps
  • a good QWERTY keyboard
  • decent battery life for a HSPA smartphone

So while I really liked the 9700 I’d like to see a better camera. The 9700′s camera doesn’t really suck but it could be better. Especially 3.2mp is basically status quo. The browser needs to go – RIM, hurry up and bring a new faster browser out!

    I am very heavy user of phone and e mail. I have separate devices for music and video. This is by far the best and most durable handset. Blackberr&hellip  |  June 11th, 2010 at 7:42 am

    The Iphone, is simply a fun, slick device, however it’s keyboard is just not condusive to fast, accurate typing of long e-mails or text messages, and it’s business funtionality is too limited.
