Boldly going where no Blackberry has gone before

So I broke down last week and got the new Blackberry Bold. Can’t say I notice a huge speed increase on the Rogers 3g network yet, but the Bold is a thing of technological beauty.

The screen is nothing short of brillant, sharp, bright and easy to read.  The change tin the email and web surfing is a vast imporvement too. Although the Bold still has a way to go to be truly a joy to web surf with, previous Blackberry owners will see a vast impovement.

And the things Blackberrys are known for, email and calendaring are superb.  Switching from my old 8800 to the Bold was a snap – took me less than 1/2 hour to make the switch. Motorola, take note.

The 3g may not yet grab me, but the speed of everything else the Bold does is amazing. Functions that took 5 seconds to do on my 8800, (make previous messages open for example) are done in less than a second.

And the camera is outstanding. Excellent tone range and quality for a phone camera.

iPhone or Blackberry Bold? If you do a lot of email, go Bold, if you want to surf the web, iPhone.
