Blackberry Bold 9780 Smartphone Review

The first BlackBerry Bold smartphone to come with the new BlackBerry® 6 operating system, the new device retains the familiar and trusted features that distinguish the BlackBerry brand while delivering a fresh, approachable and engaging experience that is powerful and easy to use.

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 delivers a wide range of enhancements including a rich new user interface, a fast and powerful WebKit-based browser, broadly improved communications and multimedia capabilities, an incredibly useful Universal Search feature and a high-quality 5MP camera.

Bold's newest variant (9780) finally brought my regret back. It’s a show-stopper for both its form and functions. It's small and light enough to fit into your pocket—so you don’t have to carry a separate pouch if you are not used to it. The keypad is revelation of sorts. It’s amazing that so much research goes on (and not by BlackBerry alone) to keep improving the typing experience in a space that is less than 6 cm in width and 3 cm in length.

The price announcement sent RIM stock up 5.68 per cent on the TSX to close at $58.61 and 7.53 per cent up on Wall Street to close at $59.14.

Of course the PlayBook will not just be facing off against Samsung and Apple, but several other mobile manufacturers will be launching tablets with similar specs over the next 12 months, including Motorola and Acer.

BlackBerry share will fall through 2014

T-Mobile seems to have only little faith in Research in Motion to keep its position in the market, because the BlackBerry OS is believed to have a steady decline into 2014. The carrier also believes that Apple will lose market share next year, as Android consolidates its leadership position, according to a document presented at the US east region meeting of the carrier.
