Hi folks! For all you BlackBerry fans out there, RIM has come out with a new BlackBerry Bold called the 9700! This device is roughly the size of my current favorite BlackBerry the 8900.
What’s so great about the 9700? Well like I said before, it’s much smaller so it’s easier to carry around and it contains new features such as 3G and a new trackpad which replaces the trackball!
Those of you that are used to using the trackball know of the problems that can arise from it’s use. The trackball can get all gummed up and get stuck and fail. With the trackpad we’re moving to an option that should technically be more resilient than the trackball, but I guess we will see in the months to come.
The Bold 9700 also supports is more media friendly as it supports more media formats than before. You can read more about it here.
