Okay all you business people out there… I have been using my BlackBerry Curve 8900 for quite some time, I am very happy with it, everything about it is great minus a few aesthetics here and there. But what more could a young tech savvy guy like me want? You got it MORE POWER! 🙂 With that I would like to introduce the BlackBerry Bold 9700… yes I know the original Bold was a massive beast, but the Bold 2 is much smaller, lighter, yet BlackBerry was kind enough to increase the processing power(624Mhz) and replace that annoying trackball with a track-pad. I don’t have one yet, but apparently we might be getting some new phones at work, and I can pass mine down to a junior employee! Anyways enough of my ramblings, here are the full specs.
