BlackBerry Bold 9700: Conclusion

November 16, 2009 by Shaun Mahal Reads (77,106)


BlackBerry Bold 9700In just a little more than a year RIM has proved that it can improve on a design that was already great. If you can afford it, there are very few reasons not to get the BlackBerry Bold 9700.

The browsing experience isn’t on par with some competitors, but that’s not why you buy a BlackBerry. There is a decent number of apps available, but again that’s not RIM’s core competency. The Bold2 has a great track pad, excellent form factor with a very solid feel, an improved OS, and I’ve experienced nearly no glitches. I can’t wait to pick mine up.


  • Smaller form factor
  • Trackpad not a trackball
  • Better camera
  • 3G and Wi-Fi calling (T-Mobile)


  • Accessories not backward compatible,
  • Poor browsing experience
  • Speakerphone quality degrades at high volumes
