BlackBerry Bold 9700- sophisticated Smartphone for utilitarian professional

RIM has done what many dare not to do. To improve an icon is just impossible and with the launch of BlackBerry Bold 9700 it has not only added one more iconic handset to its portfolio but has dared to compete with its own predecessor. The R&D team at RIM has successfully launched its yet another handset which is not only perfect but stays ahead of its competitors when it comes to style, performance and pricing.


The Bold 9700 is a compact package of all the three. The Bold 9700 promises to be the most sophisticated smartphones for the utilitarian professional in the market.


When it comes to style the new BlackBerry Bold 9700 emerges as a true winner. It is a compact handset which is lighter as compared to Bold 9000 with excellent build quality. Now to talk about the performance, the phone comes with some top of the line features that include 2.44 inch 65k color TFT landscape display with a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels. It also has a comfortable 4 row full QWERTY key pad and runs on BlackBerry OS V 5. The phone supports Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G with HSDPA. The Bold 9700 has a hot-swappable microSD card slot offering memory of up to 16GB.


The 9700 Bold comes with a faster 624 MHz processor and a decent 3.2 MP autofocus camera with LED flash. The other features to look for in BlackBerry Bold 9700 is a responsive optical trackpad navigation, DivX and XviD video support, 256 MB RAM, good web browser and preloaded BlackBerry maps. The phone comes with Wi-Fi and Built-in GPS. It also offers office document editor, 3.5 mm jack, a very decent sound quality and a 1500mAh battery that offers 6 hours of talk time which is the longest battery of all BlackBerrys.


The new Bold 9700 comes with a price tag of Rs. 31,000 and after having a sneak peak at the feature list the phone comes with, it is not much asking for.
