New ad for BlackBerry Bold 9780 shows off WebKit browser
On almost every television station you watch these days, AT&T and RIM are bombarding you with commercials for the BlackBerry Torch 9800. But with the Torch being an exclusive to AT&T, other carriers need to advertise their latest and greatest RIM manufactured devices. So RIM has put together a new ad for the BlackBerry Bold 9780 that is available in the U.S. through only T-Mobile for now (although AT&T is expected to offer its version of the phone soon).

Not only does the ad show off the white version of the phone,  but the spot also gives you a look at the new BlackBerry WebKit browser. In the ad, we can see the new tabbed browsing feature as the ballerina uses her 'Berry to watch a video from the mobile YouTube site (sorry, BlackBerry users, still no YouTube client for your phone). The bottom line is a commercial that shows how useful and practical the device can be, not to mention how sexy the Bold 9780 looks in white.

Blackberries are special...

they're like the senior citizen of smartphones.

I believe they even get a discount at Chuck-A-Rama

P.S. Phone Arena your word jumble is a F*$#ing joke that you type in if you're not registered.

Meh. There is a market for BlackBerry handsets. The problem I have with the current generation (with v. 6.0.### of the O/S) is that the browser still is behind the times. It is better than the browser in versions 4.### and 5.###, but is nowhere near what is available for either iOS or Android.

RIM can't hold onto their security model in perpetuity. Either (or both) Android or iOS (maybe even WP7 for that matter) will catch up and pass RIM's security model. Once FIPS certification is received, it will be over for RIM.

we had a BB rep test it here claiming it would set the standard... we all pulled out our Android phones and smoked every page with richer media loaded.

needless to say all creditbility of 6.0 was lost..
