It is yet another model to have integrated WiFi 802.11a/b/g. A new "Push Button Setup" is included for easier connecting to a protected network. GPS is also integrated, to be used with BlackBerry Maps and other location-based applications.
The Internet browser is claimed to have been improved for desktop-like experience with trackball “mouse-like” navigation and zooming option. We should also expect better multimedia options with enhanced media player and integrated stereo speakers. Using “a new acoustic design”, it is touted to increase the phone’s audio sweet spot, resulting in better incoming sound quality.
BlackBerry Bold is the first model of the manufacturer to feature global UMTS/HSDPA 3G support (850/1900/2100 MHz) and also the first ever with U.S. GSM 3G. Although not official, it is expected to be offered also in T-Mobile-bound (with 1700 MHz UMTS on-board) and CDMA/EV-DO variants, suitable for carriers such as Verizon, Sprint and Alltel. Exact dates are not known, but the press release mentions availability around the world this summer.
Too bad it has a camera. I use BB because it is a great traveling business person's communications platform. However, many business's do not allow camera phones in the buildings.

Nope..Verizon aint gettin sh*t this summer..as it takes 2 years for them to get anything including Sprint..ATT will have it ASAP ;-)..only thing that I dont like that I am sure I will keep enjoying on my BB Curve 8310 is the keyboard..I prefer spaced out keys that you can feel whereas the 9000 keys are again squished next to one another and not as raised if at all when pressed.

First off, Verizon only takes there time because we buy the phones from BB, and they have to be up to r specifications, like not having any bugs for instance. At&t knows that its customers r completely stupid and will buy anything they can get their hands on, even if its a fake phone. Im not saying the Bold is, but I am saying that At&t and Sprint's models will most definiately be pretty crappy.
