It would be great if GSM Arena could print the sizes of the screens of phones. In the specs page they have only given us the pixel count. What about the screen diagonal, the length and width of the screen, and last but not least, the image aspect ratio. The latter is never given in the specs and this is a pity especially with all the different types of widescreen that are appearing in the market. For instance the SE X1 sports 16:9 whereas Nokia E90 is 9:4.
I can make an educated guess for the BB Bold, based on the pixel count. It could be 5:3 though 16:9 is more common.
Guessing! Guessing! Guessing!....come on GSM Arena, give us the specs!!
Currently have a Treo 750 on Telstra NEXTG (Aus). Would like to hear comments from people who have gone from this to the BOLD. I to have issues with sound & size. Also would love to loose the Stylist.

Anonymous, 21 Sep 2008Does BlackBerry sync with Microsoft Outlook?I have a Blackberry 8310 with Voda and I use Microsoft Exchange Server and get all my emails no probs. Voda told me that the same applies to the Bold 9000 so I have one on back order.
I also had the 8310 accessing POP email prior to using it with Exchange Server.

Anonymous, 21 Sep 2008Does BlackBerry sync with Microsoft Outlook?Hi, I use my 8800 regularly with MS Outlook, and it works perfectly.
Yes is syncs with outlook very well via blackberry desktop manager.
Its connects to gps, 3g ect via blackberry exchange server, which you have to pay for, but it does give you unlimited data for browsing, emails, mms, streaming, maps, downloads ect.
You can get your personal email pushed and business.
Camera has goe-tagging which works very well.
I am reading comments like the device gets crippled if we do not subscribe to the Blackberry service?
Something like wifi or gps gets crippled or something?

When are you going to review this phone? Upgrading next month and need to make a decision
I've had my bold for a couple of days now, it's my first Blackberry and I am very impressed.
It is fast, very responsive and looks the nuts.
Once you get used to it, the way it laid out and all of its set up options you will have in your hand a very powerful high end smart phone. The screen is far better than the iphone, and imo, better than the HTC diamonds, very colour full, very bright and crisp even in full sunlight.
Once you have had the gps to log on (a couple of minutes outside is all it takes) you will get it to log and and pin point your location within 3metres inside the building you are in. Google maps works a treat and so does Vodafone SatNav.
As a multimedia devise it handles itself very well too, great video payback, very good music organiser and quality and good picture organiser. You can store what ever you want onto the memory card and save the phones memory for programs and apps.
Push mail works excellently, as you'd expect with a RIM handset, it faster than my pc at retrieving, it comes to my handset faster than it does to my inbox.
Battery life is good too, I run mine flat after the first initial charge in about20 hours, and that was with constant use of gps, video playback, playing music, web browsing, sending emails and whatever else I could do! It now lasts a couple of days before a charge.
I took it my handset into my local Vodafone shop to get some help with setting up push mail (it is my first bb!) and it turned heads! Most of the shop floor assistants hadn't ever seen one and they wanted to play!!
If you considering getting yourself this handset than all I can say is I heartily recommend it and give it 9/10. I'd give it a 10/10 but nothing is perfect!!
