"Definitely the BEST blackberry and smartphone out there"5.0 starson by want2cbetter
Pros: The form factor; the speed of the OS; the trackpad; the video recorder's quality; visual voicemail
Cons: The web browser HAS to be updated - Opera Mini is a must to make up for the native browser's downfalls
Summary: If you want a toy, get an iphone or a droid. If you want a work horse that looks great, fits perfect in your hand/pocket and has many, many fun things to do on it, then get the Bold 9700. I use this phone for my e-mails, calendar, radio/music player, taking great photos and video, games and much more. The trackpad is much better than the already great trackball. The ratio of chrome to black is perfect for the look. The fake leather back is perfect (no more slipping like on the 8900). Visual Voicemail is amazing. The phone is blazing fast...... wow - it's so fast. The 5.0 OS is great, with many improvements. So much works so well on this phone.
