The BlackBerry Bold 9700

Hello all you BlackBerry addicts out there! The new BlackBerry Bold 9700 is here, and Bold lovers everywhere are rejoicing! You see I have a few friends with Bolds and a few friends with the Curve 8900. They are constantly bickering with each other over who has the better BlackBerry.

The Curve 8900 is the smaller and lighter version of a Bold but with better features such as a nicer screen resolution and higher MP camera. The Bold on the other hand has a larger screen and is easier to work with for people who can’t read such a small screen.

Well the new Bold 9700 has the best of both worlds, it features all the upgrades of the Curve 9700 but in a bold formfactor. To make it even better, the new Bold 9700 is lighter than it’s predecessor coming in at 4.27 ounces versus 4.8 ounces. To compare the Curve 8900 is a paltry 3.8 ounces in weight.

Will I be going to a Bold 9700? Heck no! I love my Curve 8900 for the time being. But I know of a few friends that won’t be able to resist this upgrade. Once again BlackBerry scores a home run in the business world with another great smartphone!
