Anonymous, 18 Nov 2009Hello, I am looking to upgrade my phone either to 9700 or the 8900.. Can anyone advise what... morethe bold 2 is a more powerful phone. blackberrys more premium handset as it were. id go with the bold any day!. i work with blackberrys hands on. and that would be my recomendation. 9700 is out at vodafone!
I am looking to upgrade my phone either to 9700 or the 8900.. Can anyone advise what the difference is between them both.. At the moment the 9700 isn't out until about 2 weeks but is it worth me waiting for it?? or shall i just get the 8900 Blackberry? but then again, do i want a new contract with a old phone! HELP..
After such a long wait, i finally got the Bold 9700. I am certainly not disappointed by it whatsoever and it is absolutely fabulous! RIM just keep better and better and, as a result, i have noticed a lot more people are using the blackberry now. Not even the Apple iPhone can beat its email functions and oh! the new trackpad is great.
Does any of you have shopped from Welectronic.com or Cleverkit.com? Are they reliable? I want to buy the Bold from online as I can't find it in Hong Kong?
Can't wait! I ordered mine as soon as I received my availability email. I already have the T-mobile Bold released in Germany last year. I can't wait to check out the trackpad. The only thing I'm sorry to not see, is the 1GB onboard memory, like the 9000. As many apps as I have on my 9000, that would have been nice, but I can just get the bigger memory card. Still, I can't wait!
battery die fast and I can't make calls sometimes it said "can not connect, call in process", I don't know why?
CrazyMam, 17 Nov 2009I want to buy the Bold from a Germany Online Shopping as Hong Kong will not have it until late... moreWhom say Hong Kong no have it. Hong kong brought Bold 9700 last week and start shipping to other part of the Asia this week.

The keyboard of 9000 is much better than of 9700. I have tried using 9700 for 20 minutes. Its not bad at all but not as comfortable to use as 9000 bold. The screen has also been shrunk. So the feel good factor of big screen has gone. The full leather back has also been replace by a smaller one. The classines of the 9000 bold is not there in 9700. Performance levels are the same. The sound quality is same as well.
I couldn't find there any major upgrade (except the 3.2 MP camera) which could attract 9000 users to replace their 9000 with 9700.
BOLD 9000 is a much practical & no-nonsense phone :)
