They made a wise move changing to the curve style. Much more attractive, moving with the times and all that. And there's not really alot more they can put in there. Maybe an cost uneffective electronic compass! or an accellerometer but there's no need for it.
esto es una evolucion de la curve 8900, es una pena que no hayan continuado con el diseño original de la bold 9000.
menuda chafada...un cero para los dirigentes de rim
i m intrested to buy but the function which i need is not in the phone i need vaibrate & tone shoud work toghether so if it is possible ple mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
this is pretty much the same as the other Bold except battery life,memory size and actual physical specs.they kept all the features of the original Bold and made it the size of the Curve 8900 which was a bad idea.should have kept it the original size,and upgraded the specs of the phone.
which day this blackberry bold 9700 come ?? anounced which day please answer me back please
used the fone for 3days , must say fone is excellent battery is much betta then the 1st bold, 3g data transfer is very fast, not many new function but summit still worth getting.its near enough the same size as the bb8900 but a much better made fone. the surrounding trim isnt plastic like the 8900 it seemed more solid n metal
Hi does anyone know if i can install greek language to this phone?Also can i install garmin or i can only use BB navigation program?Thanks!
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2009Is the controler a trackbal like the last bold?No, no trackball. There is a trackpad, just like in the 8520 Curve.
i guess the reason why they reduce the screen size is for the sake of getting longer battery time. many people complaint that the BB9000 can hardly last a day. smaller screen is probably the easiest way to fix it.
It seems to me that the only reason why some people like the old Bold 9000 is because it is a big phone that can be shown off. I really cannot understand that mentality.
By all objective analysis the Bold 9700 has been judged the best BlackBerry ever. A bigger mobile phone does not mean a better mobile phone. A BlackBerry phone is not for showing off. It is for emails, PIN messaging and BBM. How anyone would describe the old Bold 9000 as being better than the Bold 9700 is beyond me.
A phone is not for showing off!
There seems to be a tendency to reduce business handsets... The old Bold was the perfect size. New one has a smaller screen... Why?? I still use a Nokia E61i because of it's large screen. I guess they expect those of us looking for big screens to choose the Storm 2 instead?
Come on rim release another 3g plus wifi plus 3.2 mp camera resolution i.e. strike 9100,magnum 9220 (that i heard 624 mhz processor),gemini or curve 9300,driftwood..

ndbx2006, 26 Oct 2009WOW... great looking phone!!! oh wait a minute!!! they downsized internal memory from 1g to 25... moreactually the RAM in 256 MB, the old bold has 128 MB. The old bold has on board 1GB memory. Bold 9700 does not have any on board memory. But you can use upto 32 GB micro SD card for storage!
