BlackBerry Bold

This new BlackBerry is way faster than an iPhone.

The new BlackBerry Bold, also known as the BlackBerry 9000, has been launched and is expected to be available to consumers sometime later this summer in an exclusive deal with AT&T.  It has twice the resolution as the Curve and a darker brighter screen similar to that of the iPhone.  It has the following features, most impressive being the 3G compatibility and speed:

  • Tri-band HSDPA (3G Technology)
  • 624-MHz processor
  • Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g)
  • Half-VGA (480×320 resolution) color LCD
  • 128 MB Flash memory plus 1 GB on-board storage memory
  • 2 megapixel camera with video recording capability, built-in flash and 5x digital zoom
  • 16GB microSD/SDHC card support
  • Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0 support
  • iTunes support via BlackBerry Media Sync
  • 5 hour talk time, 13 days stand-by

Compared to the Curve, it has much more internal memory, a glossy metallic look, and adds corporate-strength Wi-Fi capabilities to 3G cellular and Bluetooth radios.  I cannot wait to get one of these to replace my BlackBerry Pearl.
