Love it

The good: EverythingThe bad: None, eh maybe the lack of "bored at work" appsSummary: I got this phone after leaving Alltel (Verizon after the coup d'├ętat, but I digress). While I was with Alltel I had the 8330, and WOW this bold is such an upgrade. There are actually no cons for this phone, perhaps just the lack of apps that distract you from that informative board meeting :D As for the physical features of the phone, well it just simply looks great! And the keyboard is just right for my thumbs (p.s. I've got big hands). ALSO!!! the track bad is amazing on it with a very minimal learning curve. So I'd definitely recommend this phone to anyone!

Best BB out, but still same old

Posted on: December 4th, 2009 by Jon K

The good: 3.2mp camera finallytrackpad big jump from trackball in ease of useScreen looks niceThe bad: screen is smallkeyboard is smaller than the old Bold, could be small for big handssome build quality issues (wobbly tackpads and other pieces on the phone)Summary: Its the best BB out, but compared to the competition out there its still behind the curve. The OS isnt much different from 4.6 OS, and RIM needs to revamp it ASAP to compete with newer OSs like iphone, Andrid, Web OS and WM7 (when it comes out). The BB OS is becoming the antiquated Palm OS of the past and past it prime. The OS isnt nearly as easy to use as something like an iphone or as visually appealing.The hardware is generally good and a step up from even the older Bold, although there are some build quality issues going around like wobbly tackpads and other pieces on the phone being creaky or loose. But it still feels like more of the same old, nothing revolutionary, just slightly evolutionary, and not sure if its worth the cost from the old Bold or a 8900 except for the 3G.The device is small and light, but may be too small for people with large hands. the screen is also shrunk from the original Bold which is disappointing because it was a good size and is now on the small side at under 2.5 inches. Compared to the huge displays out there (iphone 3.5" Droid 3.7" Touch Pro 3.6") it looks like a postage stamp and videos (and photos) are hard to view as they strain your eyes.OS wise- streaming video/youtube support is basic at best and the screen size hinders viewing anything for more than a min or 2. Also the browser is in a SERIOUS need of upgrading, the mobile web is no longer the standard for a smartphone. Webkit browsers with touchscreen work a TON better and dont have to scroll the little ball/pad up and down and left and right time after time to view a page. Battery life has been great, easily through a full day and voice quality has been generally good, maybe a little worse than the 1st Bold but not by much if at all.A side note, BIS still needs a huge revamp. With Exchange and 2 way gmail sync in mostly every smartphone on the market out of the box, there's no excuse for the same $30 data plan that BIS doesnt support email folders, or 2 way Gmail (things you read or delete on the computer arent registered on the device) in almost 2010. It was a good system in 1999 but it needs a huge revamp if they want to keep their consumer space share
