BlackBerry Bold 9700 Review

Ernesto Aponte is a Supervisor at our New York SoHo store. The following is his opinion on the BlackBerry Bold 9700:

Recently, I managed to get my hands on the Blackberry Bold 9700 and have been utterly impressed. It is sleek, smooth, and a great investment if you're looking for a new phone or want to upgrade your current BlackBerry. RIM's new track pad technology is based on, and is similar to, a laptop computer's trackpad. This new method of navigation is a definite upgrade from older model's trackball. It may not be an iPhone, but the BlackBerry Bold 9700 excels in its own category. The 9700 is, in my opinion, the greatest phone for texting, emailing, and business. You can integrate multiple email accounts, manage contacts and music through the BlackBerry desktop manager, and much more. Here are some pros and cons:

  • Makes staying connected simpler.
  • Great Mp3 player
  • High-quality speaker
  • Great screen resolution
  • Qwerty Keyboard makes typing a breeze for emailing and texting
  • Materials used make the phone feel high-end
  • Much more grown up than a Sidekick
  • Long battery life
  • Very good reception
  • Web browser leaves something to be desired
  • Physically smaller than the original Bold
  • Long start up time
  • OEM holster and headphone quality is lacking
Overall, I would recommend this phone to anyone. It will not disappoint.
