The Bold includes a number of firsts for a RIM smartphone. It is the first from this company to support tri-band HSDPA high-speed 3G networks around the world. It is the first from RIM with a half-VGA (480 by 320 pixel) display, and the first with robust support for viewing and editing Microsoft Office documents. The design isn’t a radical departure from RIM’s earlier lineup, though. It has a tablet shape with a QWERTY keyboard. However, it is curvier, with corners that are significantly rounder than any previous BlackBerry. Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 2 MPx camera round out this smartphone.
