A Bold New Blackberry

I have been playing with Blackberry’s new Bold for a month or so. I am very impressed with it. For my money, when it first came out it was the best piece of hardware released to date by Research in Motion. It remains an excellent telephone, but in my opinion eclipsed by the Storm, released shortly after the Bold. I will write about the Storm later.

The Bold does everything that previous Blackberry devices did, only better in most cases. The size and shape of the Bold does not radically differ from the last generation of devices, but it has a finish that looks more substantial and professional than the plastic-cased Curve.

The Bold comes with built-in GPS, a 2.0 MP camera, Blackberry Maps, video recording capability, Wi-Fi, the standard compliment of PDA programming (calendar, contacts, etc.) and handles mail with the typical Blackberry aplomb. It also provides excellent telephony (including a built-in speakerphone), SMS/MMS support and plays MP3 music.

Without a doubt, the Bold’s biggest upgrade relates to its display. The display has a half VGA resolution (480 x 360 pixels) and uses a backlit transmissive TFT LCD screen. The display is bright, deep and rich. I judge it as far and away the best display on any Blackberry as of the release of the Bold.

The Bold has a full qwerty-style keypad and I like the touch, feel and size of the keys.

The Bold initially came out only on the AT&T system and works with the AT&T Edge network to provide reasonably fast Internet support. It is a GSM phone and should prove to be “unlockable”, allowing you to use it with other GSM systems throughout the world once you have an unlocked unit.

RIM claims 4.5 hours of talk time and 13.5 hours of standby time for the Bold. Because of the way I use and test phones, I have never matched the amount of talk or standby time on any phone that the manufacturer claims for it and the Bold is no exception. I have no problem getting 2-3 days of use between charges though and that works fine for me. My Own Private Idaho move
