The bold and the Beautiful?

By: John Gray

Smartphone manufacturer BlackBerry have this week announced a new addition to their collection of smartphone mobiles, this time it is the turn of the long awaited Blackberry Bold which is also known as the Blackberry 9000.

The BlackBerry Bold has a large TFT display with the same half VGA resolution as the Apple iPhone's - 480 x 320 pixels, as well as a full qwerty keyboard for those who use email a lot and the latest Blackberry Operating System 4.6.

The BlackBerry Bold has a 624 MHz processor and 1GB of internal storage. It also has a microSD memory card slot which can currently take 8 GB microSDHC cards, but once 16 GB cards become available it will also be able to handle these - so running out of memory really shouldn't be a problem with the BlackBerry Bold!

As well as the usual email client, document viewer and document editor the BlackBerry Bold has a media player (which plays MP3, WMA and DivX amongst others) - so that you can use up some of that massive memory capacity with your favourite music and videos (being a business person does not mean you are averse to popular music or amusing videos!) The BlackBerry Bold also has a 2 megapixel camera with a built in flash and has in-built GPS and comes with BlackBerry Maps pre-loaded.

So you really are getting an all round smartphone device here, it has a little bit of everything to suit even the fussiest of smartphone user. The BlackBerry Bold is due out in mid-summer, although there is no word on pricing as yet expect it to come at a cost!
