BlackBerry Bold 9780 now on T-Mobile

Finally, after we expected it a bit earlier, the first non-touchscreen smartphone to feature the newest BlackBerry OS 6 is out in the USA and T-Mobile has it for you for $129.99 if you take it with a 2-year contract. The BlackBerry Bold 9780 will be a bit heavier on your pocket if you choose the retail price and no ties to a carrier at $449.99. RIM's latest addition to the Bold series is available in black and white and packs some more power than its predecessor, the BlackBerry Bold 9700. If you decide to upgrade, you will get 512MB of RAM and a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera.


Is the latest iteration of the BlackBerry OS worth it? As we said earlier it is more of a gradual step to bridge the gap between business professionals and the regular user. RIM promises to deliver improved social features, user interface and a new faster WebKit-based browser. With the competitive pricing and battery life, it is a chance for RIM to get back in the smartphone race. Do you like the newest BlackBerry?

Round and round the cobbler's bench
The monkey chased the weasel,
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun
Pop! Goes the weasel.

A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.

A half a pound of tupenny rice,
A half a pound of treacle.
Mix it up and make it nice,
Pop! Goes the weasel.

Up and down the London road,
In and out of the Eagle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.

I've no time to plead and pine,
I've no time to wheedle,
Kiss me quick and then I'm gone
Pop! Goes the Blackberry 9780

Does anyone really care about these crappy blackberries anymore? Really?
This type of ancient technology is like Nokia releasing a T9 keypad garbage phone 9 years after they went out of fashion. Yay, the third world has a new phone to catch them up to where the first world was a decade ago. Oh, wait--this phone is being released for North America?! Wow, this '3G capable' device (5 years after I had my first 3G device-way to push the technological envelope) has a 5 megapixel camera (5 years after the Nokia N95)! I'm surprised they don't claim a 'color screen' as a major selling point.
What a joke...

May I also add that this phone is $450!!!! A Nokia N8 with every 3G band in the world plus a 12megapixel camera (yeah that's right, twelve) is about $500. T-Mobile should pay the customer $130 to extend his or her contract and be burdened with this piece...

LOL to everything you said, and how much more true can it be. But hey... it's got a physical keyboard, and most blackberry tards need a physical keyboard, that they can get on 100 other far cheaper phones. The most amazing thing is 95% of their users don't need the enterprise level features the phone does have (which are pretty good), and have no clue how to operate it because it's such a complicated phone. How do people look at that dinky little non-touch screen and actually consider buying that phone?!?!?!

Off contract prices have always been to scare the consumer into buying with a contract, Honestly who would pay that much for a phone? Anyways the information they give is really usefull to some people, Most of my family buys phones from what that little list says rather than digging deeper to see what else it does. Also, Blackberrys may not have that spaz and fun of that android has but its still gets the job done. The ironic thing is that this phone will sell because some people still think that haveing a blackberry makes you "rich" and "cool".

To each his/her own I say when it comes to cellphones. Whether your buying it for prestige, technology or usefulness there is quite a variety out there to choose from. Who am I to tell someone how to spend their hard earned money. But on a personal note, Nokia N8 is second to none. Everyone else still needs to catch up to Nokia. Their tech. is about 5 to 7 yrs. ahead of everyone else
