New from RIM: The BlackBerry Somewhat More Bold

bb-bold-9700-pressThere’s a new BlackBerry Bold headed to market. This morning, Research in Motion (RIMM) uncrated the BlackBerry Bold 9700, a more refined version of its popular enterprise device, the BlackBerry Bold 9000.

Among the upgrades: A slimmer design, a 3.2-megapixel camera, sharper 360-by-480 display, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi support and an optical trackpad similar to that of the BlackBerry Curve 8520. The new handset is also outfitted with a 624MHz processor and 256 MB of flash memory.

Paired with BlackBerry OS 5.0, this should mean some decent performance gains. So an incremental update, but little more. Said RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis: “This is the Bold for those that wanted it just a little smaller, but still wanted the Bold look, feel, performance and materials.”

Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life is too short to be of any use.
