Getting a Blackberry Bold 9700

blackberry-bold-9700
After 4 months of using the Sony Ericsson K770i, with which I’m really impressed with, I think it’s time to try out some smart phones. My eyes have been onto a blackberry for some time now and this makes me look on the Blackberry Bold 9700. It has been called the best blackberry phone.
Here are some of its key features:


  • Sleek design measuring 4.29″ x 2.36″ x 0.56″ (109 mm x 60 mm x 14.1 mm) and weighing only 4.3 oz (122 grams)


  • Sharp and dazzling 2.44” light-sensing display (480 x 360 resolution at 245 ppi)


  • Highly tactile full-QWERTY keyboard – with finely sculpted keys and chrome frets – for fast, accurate typing


  • Innovative touch-sensitive trackpad that allows intuitive and responsive navigation


  • Built-in Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) with support for Wi-Fi calling via UMA where available


  • 3.2 MP camera with variable zoom, autofocus, flash and video recording


  • BlackBerry® OS 5.0, offering users email management and calendar enhancements* as well as a better browsing experience with faster JavaScript and CSS processing


  • Built-in GPS for maps and other location-based applications, as well as photo geotagging


  • Media player for videos, pictures and music (music play now extended up to 38 hours), plus support for BlackBerry® Desktop Manager for both PCs and Macs, and BlackBerry® Media Sync for easily syncing iTunes® and Windows Media® Player music with the smartphone**


  • 3.5 mm stereo headset jack, dedicated volume controls, Lock and Mute keys seamlessly integrated across the top of the handset


  • microSD/SDHD memory card slot that supports up to 16 GB cards today and is expected to support 32 GB cards when available; a 2GB card is included


  • 256 MB of Flash memory


  • Access to BlackBerry App World™, featuring a broad and growing catalog of mobile applications developed specifically for BlackBerry smartphones. Categories include games, entertainment, IM and social networking, news, weather, productivity and more.


  • Premium and easy-to-access phone features, background noise suppression technology and high quality speakerphone


  • Bluetooth® (2.1) with support for Secure Simple Pairing, hands-free headsets, stereo headsets, car kits and other Bluetooth peripherals


  • Support for BlackBerry® Internet Service and BlackBerry® Enterprise Server


  • Available in two versions to support various carrier 3G network frequency combinations:


    • UMTS/HSDPA 2100/1900/850/800 MHz and quad-band EDGE/GPRS/GSM


    • UMTS/HSDPA 2100/1700/900 MHz and quad-band EDGE/GPRS/GSM


  • Removable, rechargeable 1500 mAhr battery that provides approximately 6 hours of talk time and 17 days of standby time in 3G mode.
This phone will suit my needs, probably. Wifi, 3g, GPRS, a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash. What more can you ask for? We’ll see when I get my hands on it. Till then. Review is coming up!
