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.
