Our Blackberry Bold Review

Bold Qwerty Keyboard

For many people who already own one, they will know that a Blackberry mobile phone is much more than just a way to call someone. It is a virtual centre of activity which allows you to do all kinds of things apart from calling your friends.

So what should you expect from the Blackberry Bold? Well, if you constantly need to be in touch and on the ball with work, then your Blackberry mobile phone will be just the way to do it. The integrated Querty keyboard is quite small but very practical, enabling you to send texts and emails with equal ease.

Blackberry Bold Right Side

It’s also exceedingly easy to tell whether you have any new emails or messages simply by glancing at the full colour screen, which measures a cool 480 x 320 pixels all in all. That’s plenty big enough to allow you to take photos and view them with the help of the 2 megapixel on board camera.

Of course most people who are in the market for a Blackberry Bold mobile phone aren’t buying one for the camera capabilities it offers. They are buying it to stay in touch, keep on top of their business and send all those messages and calls that they constantly have the need for.

Blackberry Bold Front

It is a nice size to sit comfortably in your hand too. The battery life is fantastic – nearly two weeks worth if you aren’t talking on it constantly – and you’ll love the Blackberry Maps in-built feature that will always have you on track to get where you need to be.

Considering the wealth of features that have been expertly packed into this mobile phone, you’ll love the sleek and understated look of it as well. If you need something that is so much more than just a mobile, the Blackberry Bold will help you stay in touch at all times – and in all ways as well.

User Comments

One tip for anyone having probs with their battery-life, only turn on the Bluetooth and WiFi when you really need them. I found you can get much longer out of the battery before having to recharge.

Have to use one of these for work and whilst not the best phone I've had, it does everything it's supposed to and has a few neat features

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good alround phone with easy navigation and lots of features.
