Got my Bold -- it is a great device, but not flawless.
- The track ball does not provide that much feedback or accuracy
- When using the music player, the sound volume will adjust to medium after every track (if anyone knows a fix -- PLEASE)
- Backlight issues - going on and off as it desires
.. But the screen is just something to see! Do not make any prejudgements on the screen from the online reports, you just have to experience it to understand it!! It's absolutelly sureal!!
If anyone knows a good site for Bold apps, please let us know! Thanks!
Sorry...my educated guess should have said 3:2 although 16:9 is more common!
Incidentally it's a pity they did not include an FM radio. Nevertheless this looks like an exciting prospect. I hope the keypad is comfortable and fast!
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?
