BlackBerry Bold 9780

 

Another solid messaging oriented smartphone from the masters. Is that enough in this day and age, though?

Great qwerty keyboard, Sharp, colourful screen, Excellent call quality and battery life, Class leading messaging interface, Web browser much improved

Small screen, Feels like it needs a touchscreen, Keyboard still favours small fingers, App store is limited

BlackBerry Bold 9780 review

 

The Blackberry 9780 is the first Bold handset to use Blackberry 6. The latest update to RIM's operating system is move away from the rigid and static OS of old, towards something more fluid in a market where Apple iOS and Android 2.2 are winning fans.

Excellent keyboard ; Better browser ; More customisation

Not a fantastic leap forward ; Low-res screen

With its full QWERTY keyboard and strong email support, the Bold 9780 is very much a phone for messaging - for sending texts and emails. To his end it’s still probably the best handsets on the market.

BlackBerry Bold 9780

 

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 takes RIM's flagship QWERTY device - the Bold 9700 - gives it a fresh new operating system with BlackBerry 6 and spits out a practically identical handset. It isn't a new move from BlackBerry, we've seen them release multiple...

Keyboard, email service, camera is improved, screen good despite size, battery life

Poor video offering, some of BB 6 seems better suited to touch control, app offering isn't all BB 6 compatible

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is an improvement over the 9700, which was an excellent device in itself. The inclusion of more RAM and a new operating system brings a device that runs faster and smoother than previously, but feels as though it is already...

BlackBerry Bold 9780 review

 

Will the addition of BlackBerry 6 operating system breathe new life into RIM's flagship phone?

Powerful messaging ; Improved media section ; Excellent new Home screen ; Great new web browser ; Better social networking functions

OS would be best on touchscreen ; Keyboard was a little small for us ; Signal strength wasn't too good ; Some interface areas still a bit plain

With the arrival of the BlackBerry Bold 9780, fans of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 will no doubt be jumping at the chance to see how good RIM's latest flagship phone is.

BlackBerry Bold 9780 review

 

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 looks identical to its Bold 9700 predecessor, but features more memory and the new BlackBerry 6 OS. A refreshed home screen, various software enhancements and a better web browser are improvements.

BlackBerry Bold 9780 review -

 

As with all of RIM?s devices, the emailing credentials are top notch with push email and multiple account setup

While an improvement on previous operating systems, BlackBerry OS 6.0 just didn?t fit as well on a non-touch-screen device

Blackberry 9780

 

Blackberry 9780 is a continuation of a popular 9700 model. Moreover, it is one of the most successful QWERTY smartphones on the market. It was logical to take the same body, upgrade the hardware and come up with a new model. You can read the review of...

To make a long story short the main difference of OS6 from its predecessor lies in customizable desktops (you cannot change them much though), alerts line and the redesigned screen on standby. Changes are not numerous, but the user experience is...

BlackBerry Bold 9780

 

We check out RIM's BlackBerry Bold 9780 that's running the company's latest mobile OS and boasts some hardware improvements as well.

New OS is a lot better to use than the one on the previous Bold, better performance and camera.

Not many changes in terms of hardware and virtually identical styling to the old model, no FM radio, no touch-screen.
