The recenly leaked specs reveal that the battery capacity is going to be only 1250mAh for this monster! That will be a disaster for the overall performance although the rest of the specs are just great.
how the hell can you say the touch screen is useless on a Bold? first of people get a Bold for the amazing physical keyboard. CAN'T be beat. please tell me a phone that has a better physical keyboard, i doubt you can. 2nd of all, all Bold users will know that the touch screen won't be used too often, and basically used for internet browsing, because who wants to scroll for days on a trackball/pad?
Looks fantastic!! I cant wait for this one to be released. Sooner than later I hope!
The phone is definitely the BB's best smart phone....but I doubt the design shwn....the screen is same as normal 2.44 inches...and not 2.8 inches...waiting to have a hands on experience...!
m very excited 4 the realise of new touch bold.....jus waiting for its first touch
Does anybody have an idea of the official release date of the Bold Touch? Need to change my 9700 and this is a perfect replacement. Nice work RIM!
Well, I really liked my Bold, the track pad workes really much better than track ball...
Than I switched to Torch... Witch is great too... But the «everything-in-a-hand» missed me. The bold is really great cause of the small-full desing...
Than I tried back my Bold... still great, but the screen is kind'a small... I was missing a bit the touch capabilities, but not as much as the nice screen of the Torch... Witch would be really awsom would be to get a turn over desing from witch we could see full «blackberry-sized-screen» t##**#*, I would like the Bold when driving... (keep it secret) but the fuul touch scree with key bord on broad side better than tall side like the Torch.
And-a-faster processor.. in my dreams I guess...
Umer, 30 Jan 2011Same Old Design :(Same old design???? Please tell me how else you can design a phone with a full qwerty keypad and screen without going down the unreliable route of sliders and flips?
The Bold is their flagship model and as a result must be able to last the 24 months of use most business contracts are using. This isn't a phone for the masses it is a business tool nothing more!
It is a stylish design that works extremely well, to redesign a BlackBerry Bold would be like coming up with a new shape for a wheel!
phones4u, 21 Feb 2011the screen will be too small to have a useful touch screen.the screen wont be that small for a touch screen.the nokia x3 has a tiny screen and its touch screen.wait for blackberry to change the outlook of this phone.hope it comes out cause i was only talking the other day i hope the bold comes out with a touch screen as it will keep me from going to another phone
Why cant BB come out with a video call facility as I already use it on my 2 year old e 71 , the day it comes i will buy until then I have decided to stay put with Nokia knowing fully well that BB OS is still superior to Symbian
It's in many ways the same phone but in many ways it's not. You guys have to remember that the bold has always been a full keyboard phone and is there high grossing phone that they offer. Why fix something that isn't broken, innovation is key for this line for Blackberry: tripling the processing power, double the ram, Improving U.I., making touch screen an option, adding a compass and other little kicks. Making the phone out of better materials, making it lighter more compact, yet sturdy and durable, Blackberry makes quality phones and there dpi is ideal as well.
well i heard is actuallu touch screen so kinda dual use withe keyboard and all
