"Solid, Attractive and is a really smart Smartphone"4.5 starson by GratefulBerry
Pros: The OS 6 adds a lot of improvement to the way the contact list stores and retrieves information. There is plenty of room for apps and the phone can be "quick booted" using the keyboard which eliminates taking it out of the case, removing the back and the
Cons: Even though the color and resolution is outstanding..... the smaller Screen size can be limiting and harder to see than on my Storm 2. The touch screen spoiled me with large size images but always remained a hassle in typing and touch selection.
Summary: A beautiful functional Blackberry. Short learning curve if you've had a Curve or the Storm 2..... not bad if you haven't. The typing and selection process is sure and the touchpad can really speed you up in some situations. There are functions you can do without selecting a menu first...... press the touchpad and it gives a small window of menu selections. Then press again. I really like this phone.... I especially like doing things once and not having to retype or reselect something as I had to do with the Storm 2. (I really, really enjoyed my Storm when I had it, but It will take something special to win me over from the Bold.) The Bold keyboard is well designed and easy to use, especially if I am careful to use my thumbnail which improves the accuracy of key selection.
