BlackBerry Bold 9700 (Bold 2) A Review

Bold 9700

The New Blackberry Bold 9700 has unique stylish high quality features. The main bold change introduced is the shift from the ball sensor to optic track-pad that gives quick navigation with prolonged life. The new launch has literally swept the market by its design and technology advantage. This appealing pocket size phone offers all the solutions the present day busy business man who desires to stay updated and organized. This beautiful sleek gadget provides easy connectivity to internet and the multi media systems with more convenience than before.

The Design and Quality

The Bold 9700 resembles Blackberry’s delicate handset Curve 8900. They both have the same dimensions for a pocket size set. Bold 9700 is well trimmed with thick chrome linings on the front and back and smart thin rails on the sides. The side panels are thin. The black soft plastic used on the different parts, repel finger marks. All the sophisticated mechanism is set into a full leather wrapped black case. The black leather patch on the battery door matches with the rest finish. The great quality outlook presented is of executive style and is all different.

Technical Features

Bold 9700 has been up-graded with 3G internet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, and GPS. The set uses a brilliant half VGA (480x 360 pixels) display and upgraded 3.2 mega-pixel cameras. The Bold mobile has a built-in 256 MB of internet memory but RIM has included a 2GB micro SD card in the built-in expansion slot behind the battery door. The different cards available can pile up to a huge 32GB. However, the high GB cards are still awaited.

Trackball dropped

The entire Blackberry phones have used trackball for navigation system. Bold 9700 and its earlier model Curve 8500 switched to the optical track-pad. Move your finger over the gem button and it functions like a laptop computer track-pad. This change will of course pose an a

djustment problem for a while, but will be found very reliable and efficient. This new style does not collect any lint and will be used much longer trouble free.

Layout

All Blackberry have screens on the front and keyboards at lower centre along with the usual essential function keys above keyboard. The right hand side houses the camera button and volume rocker. The left hand side takes all the accessories jacks and connections including recharging.

Keyboard

The QWERTY keyboard, as it is termed is the finest of the Blackberry. The new model keyboard has been made a bit smaller but is useful compatible. The design features present a more refined look and a compact feel. The crisp feedback is quieter than the earlier models and the Curve 8900.

Camera

The Curve 8900 had a built in camera the 3.2 mega-pixel that received an all out appreciation in the market. Bold 9700 has the same camera installed with no difference at all. The camera auto focuses quickly at half button press and takes sharp fully focused pictures with colors filling in a second later. The LED flash even manages discernable snapshots in the dark but low light can improve the results better. The small screen of 2.44 inches of course has its limitations as a view finder but it certainly exhibits adequate versatility as the camera is moved around.

Bold 9700 Screen

The Curve 8900 and Bold 9700 have same size display screen. The image resolution, colors and brightness are Blackberry’s unique. The 2.44 inch comes with built in half VGA brightness that produces a sharp display of all image details that helps to read even the smallest text. The back light is also powerful enough to provide good light to allow reading and to decipher vibrant colors.

Battery

Bold 9700 come with a strong battery capacity at 1500 mAhr. The RIM standard has ensured the rated talk time for 6 hours while the standby time lasts 21 days. The storage time has been extended as compared to previous models that lasted under 5 hours of talk time and about 13 days of standby period. Their claim for longer battery life seems valid.
