Who the hell would buy this for 500+ Euros...?This is not even worth 300+ Euros considering what other OS's possess...
Have been using this handset for the last few days and first impressions are good. Very similar to the 9700, but with the new O/S.
Processor seems to be a good bit quicker than the 9700 and the screen has a much higher resolution.
All in all a good handset.
This is the best non-touchscreen phone for now.
Things that RIM has to be done for Bold without changing it's god-like design
- 640 x 480 multitouch scratch resistant screen (this will make it same pixel intensity as iPhone 4)
- Better CPU (1GHz)
- GPU or some sort of Graphic Accelerator
- Full Adobe Flash support
- Better camera and video recording (may not be higher pixel)
1) please change that photo
2) this phone has been announced by carriers
3) add it to the main page!
'T-Mobile UK has jumped the gun and revealed pricing for the, BlackBerry OS 6-toting Bold 9780. The Bold 9780 is the successor to the aging, but wildly popular Bold 9700. According to Electricpig, the new BlackBerry will be available before Christmas. The handset will be available for £0 ($0, if you convert) if you sign 2 years of your life away for a £30/month. Reasonable, no? However, we still don’t have any info on tariff details.
The three other major carriers in Blighty – O2, Orange and 3, have remained tight-lipped on availability. With the festive shopping season around the corner, you can expect all the major carriers to jump on-board'
Looks like the ball is rolling now
This handset is listed in the Orange UK October Pricebook with a trade £15 higher than the 9700...no date for stock at this moment
I've been using it for 10 days now, and all I can say is: Torch? WHAT???...9780 is the best BB I have ever had. I've been using the 9700 for a year with no problems whatsoever, and the 9000 before that. 9780 is THE BB!!!!!
is this phone still a rumor? there have been talks about a release that in mid-October-November
Let's try to get the ratings up. I am giving this phone a 10/10 every day and got it 2% up. Keep it on top! Blackberry is the bestes
