RIM is about to release the successor to the Bold 9000 - the BlackBerry Bold 9700. The cosmetic resemblance is minimal when you look from afar and pit it against the other devices they've launched. Let's take a closer look into the Bold 9700's world...

Can't wait to see it in Tmobile stores, I am undecided between this and the N900. I look forward to handling it in person.

Just remember, the Nokia N900 isn't a phone. Making calls on it is a nightmare - lots of menus to navigate through.

Actually, as I know, you just have to turn the device in portrait mode to see all your contacts.

I like this Bold, but the reviewis accurate, there are really no innovations from the recently released BBs. It is more if the same. That isn't saying that it is bad. It is the best front facing keyboard device on the market by far and will continue to be over the next year. But it fails to offer the features that touchscreen devices can offer. That's it's downfall.

If what the review is saying is true, I'm not sure if I'd pick this one up. Reception is questionable, voice quality is questionable, and I read that the AT&T Bold version had better battery life. I like the cheap TMO rates, but not at the cost of quality or use.
