To DEWO....I am in S. Korea and frequent japan and thailand often. never been to indonesia so not sure how they are from a technology standpoint compared to japan, korea, but bb is barely exists here. As far as sales figures go, I specifically said "SALES FIGURES OF THE E71" check out the reviews and accolades this phone has received on ANY website. Phone of the year for instance..(wired magazine) I still have an N70 (hold old is that) that runs circles around many phones of today spec wise. I won't even bring up the NOKIA N73 or the N82 that still are KILLERS. I'm not taking anything away from blackberry, i really like the 8900 and I'm guessing I will really like the 9700, but spec for spec...I'm guessing the E72 will win out and best believe there will be tons of articles comparing the 2 head to head. And for those mis informed souls that worry about BBM/push mail....Nokia DOES support it now after going away from it for a while. And if it didn't I suspect that a vast majority of the people on this site that claim to NEED it,, really don't so stop acting like you are DONALD freekin TRUMP or somebody. I don't need it at all but its a feature I want for no other reason but to say that "I have it" cuz i am a gadget person.
John, 09 Oct 2009This is the Best Phone Blackberry has ever made. Hope is not too big or heavy like Bols 9000. ... moreI have a feeling that its gonna be like its parent the 8800 that I have I didn't like their obease child but I hope their supermodel offspring will be like the 8800 basically I am saying the Bold2 will probably be like the 8800
I just wondering, if the application memory bigger than tour 9630.
Because, in the older bold 9000, slower than tour.
And I believe, it comes from how many free of the application memory.
Why is that BB put great processors on phones like the Bold 9000 or 9700 and then no VOIP, no Skype to run? I dont understand what is the need of having such a fast processor if then the device is blocked for using Skype????
dboz, 08 Oct 2009this looks like a nice upgrade but i think nokia e72 is still better as a sleek, solid handset.man,you better get blackberry 9700 i think ?
this phone sucks.. the previous bold is better..!
looks wise.. battery.. keyboard.. and track ball has a different feel to it..!
Dewo, 16 Oct 2009If the 9000 using 624mhz cpu, what is the cpu used on the new bold (9700) is it higher or lower?I think the CPU on the 9700 is 802mhz. Plus it has double the RAM over the Bold, so it will be faster, ofcourse. I can't wait for this phone to come out!
E72 - Great hardware hampered by the absolutely awful symbian software.. You can sort address book by company name, HTML email just isn't good enough and so it goes on... If only you could put the blackberry UI into the E72..
Angry Chinese Driver, 13 Oct 2009Sorry friend...no BBM = Nokia is inferior! If Nokia kept BBM, then for sure you're right.good phone
New Blackberry Bold9700, does it have a noise reduction like Crystal Talk?
wiill it be available in uk? i have 8900 currently, finally 3g n wi fi in 1!
Waiting for this one, hope it makes the same statement as its older brother. The Bold has a class of its own, and when your in meeting and you place your phone on the table it does make a BOLD statement, though it might be considerably large in size, I prefer it to be that way, coz it simply makes other phones look like normal bar of plastic nd metal able to make calls
