it seems that everyone is praising BB here, i just want to say any BB device is useless without the Blackberry internet service (BIS) and you would have to pay a premium for it. I have bold 9000 and I can't even connect to the damn WIFI hotspot in starbucks unless i activated the BIS. Wat the crap! and a few of my friends are also an avid traveller, some of them have blackberry and they can't even use 3G with the local sim card where they are..BB is good for stagnant people. Stay in 1 country forever, too bad I am not one of them.
ng_lee, 23 Oct 2009Hi, I just want to express some opinions about blackberry device and the the company which mak... morewhy are you so critical of BB? you mention little reason of why except poor user interface. i would disagree with you here having used various phones for 15+years. i find it a very good and stable interface. also your statement is so negative. dont you think with more competition the phones get better. so by losing key players your phone tech will not be as rapid
I used to have Nokia. samsung and LG phone. last months i bought a Bberry Bold and i love it so much its easy to used and i have no problem at all! its a great phone for everyone to used it. and the Bberry messenger is so cool. i can add on flag on my messenger. talk to my mates init. but the sad thing is the camera anyway i dont care much abt the camera. its a Good phone for me i will never change my phone any longer.
I suspect the Bold 9700 also supports UMTS 2100/1700/900 MHz (Bands 1,4,8). See http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/blackberrybold9700/bold_specifications.jsp
Hi, I just want to express some opinions about blackberry device and the the company which makes blackberry.
I've use lot of kind of cellphones, Sony, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, LG, Iphone, Blackberry...etc. so I have lot of experiences of the user interface. so according to my experiances, the blackberry device is the worst i ever seen and used. I, actually, want to see RIM go backcrupt in a few years or ASAP. thanks.
This thing better rock compared to my bold and jav....... been waiting long enough!!!

This is going to be a great phone. I love BlackBerry with all my heart. The only reason that I can think of that people will use any other phone than a BlackBerry is because they have never used a BlackBerry before. To compare the Nokia E71 to any BlackBerry is like saying a fake Picasso is better than a real Picasso.
BlackBerry rules because it is awesome. The only thing that BlackBerry lacks is a FM radio, but other than that it is perfecto.
The pixel resolution has almost no bearing on the quality of the images/videos.
As long as it's over 65k, the resolution will only be as good as the images you load onto it.
Wait around for Sony Ericsson 2010 - I have a source which informs me they will be bringing out a plasma screen capable of playing Blu-Ray.
This phone looks and sounds awesome. The other thing which is bothering me a little is the weight....i.e. 122g. What do you guys say?
Yusuf, 20 Oct 2009Excuse me but this 16M colour thing means jack! Take a look at a bold screen compared to a E71... moreyes, it looks much better but it is also more than twice the price of an E71.
of course you get a better looking phone if you pay more, duh.
Yusuf, 20 Oct 2009Excuse me but this 16M colour thing means jack! Take a look at a bold screen compared to a E71... morefirst E71 is a stupid simbyan, not compare to a blackberry OS, and ho now handling a blackberry of high capacity is a smart guy ;)
just got news from one of Indonesian distributors for BB, a friend of mine told me that the device will be sold in Indonesia starting on November 20th for a price of 650 US$ unlocked.... any other price info from other countries for the unlocked version?
looks like for rogers customers its going to be $299 on a 3 year plan with min $45MSF which sucks hardcore because people in down south (USA) are getting it for $199 on only a 2 year contract. Just shows you how much us canadians are getting ripped off with our wireless devices
