Blackberry Bold 9700 announced

The Blackberry Bold gets a nice upgrade with the newer Bold 9700 model which is expected to be released by next month. If last month’s Blackberry Curve 8520 isn’t too equipped for your needs, the Blackberry Bold 9700 has it.

No indication what processing power is inside but it could be the same as the BB Bold 9000 at 624 MHz.

Included is a document editor (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF) and a really nice battery pack (Li-Ion 1500 mAh).

The main difference between this one and the older version is that RIM has replaced the problematic trackball navigation with an optical trackpad.

I love my BB Bold 9700. Great phone even though the bezel slightly creaks near the p, q and a buttons.

Long time BB user issued by the companies I work for. Email push is fab and the messenger is great to chat up friends. My only issue with Globe as my carrier is the lack of support/availability to the bb apps world… Compared to the iPhone, not much to download at all.

I have BB9700 and it’s awesome! I’m just in a process of exploring like using the net without wifi etc but since I think globe’s now offering unlimited net access for prepaid subscribers so that’s no problemo na! Price ranges from 26k upto 29K I guess.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
