When the Bold and the 8800 are placed next to each other, what's striking is the similarities between the 2. The exact same size, similar keyboard, buttons placement, including the now familiar trackball. Even the ports are more or less the same, the same weight. Mine came with its own holster but I could have used the 8800's with the Bold.
Then, it's the display. The Bold is what it says it is: bright, clear, vivid. You see it and you now know that it's an evolutionary step up on the ladder. In addition, you get the camera that shoots both pictures and video and the ability to add more memory means that you scan store more video and more music if you want to use your Blackberry as an iPod lite. The operation seems to be a bit faster, the battery life is more or less the same, the quality of the speaker phone is better but, overall, it's your familiar Blackberry, having learned a few new tricks and with a bright face.
I am happy with the Bold because I am happy with Blackberries in general. I like the unlimited email and Internet browsing plan, the ability to use Wi-Fi when available and the security it provides. My Blackberry is tied into my company's email environment and it is now very much an extension of my office while I'm away. The Bold, with its high resolution screen and the same solid, functional build is a good tool, now with more 'fun' stuff (camera, video playing) added to it.
First, the SCREEN. Absolutely amazing. I'm always looking over my shoulder because it can be read from like a mile away! It's much bigger than it looks in the photos, and you can set the font as big as you want.
Second, the KEYBOARD. Soft, bouncy, easy to use. Next best thing to an actual computer keyboard, I swear. I am partial to PDAs with onboard keyboards, and I'm really picky about them. I wouldn't buy the 8800 because I didn't like the keyboard, and the one on the Tilt drove me crazy. This one's the absolute best.
Third, the SOUND QUALITY. I don't have a home phone, and the reception in my house sucks -- not anymore! When I'm on the phone, this sounds like a land line, and the people on the other end of the call say the sound is great. 3G reception is an improvement, at least where I live.
Web browsing is greatly improved over the Curve, and YouTube can be viewed pretty well. I am finding the Web accessing and viewing to be fairly good and often can substitute the Bold for my laptop. It's a bigger PDA, so if you like the size of the Curve, you may want to wait for the Javelin. It is not terribly heavier, and it's still slim, but it IS bigger (which I happen to like - I found the Curve a bit delicate-looking).
And then, of course, all the other great things about owning a BlackBerry. This is a great machine. All pros and cons of all PDAs I've checked out (and there have been many!) considered, this is the best. A powerhouse.
I have found no software glitches or needs to reboot. I've had the phone for about 10 days now.
I love all the bells and whistles (Add-ons) it comes with, you can download themes that make it look just like an iPhone, but obviously with BB functionality. A must buy.
The first phone sent to me wouldn't power up. It was obviously an old phone, with a rusty earphone port, old battery and broken headset. Very dirty looking phone.
I was amazed that I was sent a used phone, because nowhere on the advert was this stated.
I mailed the phone back and subsequently got a replacement. This one at least powered up, but the track ball, green speak button and red power buttons didn't work. Also it was a used phone with an old battery and very dirty inside.
This is really not a review of The BB 9000, but a review of Cell Lounge.
People: AVOID CELL LOUNGE LIKE A PLAGUE.
I trust Amazon implicitly and generally look nowhere when it comes to shopping online, but Cell Lounge and others like it will ultimately destroy Amazon's reputaTion if this keeps up.
