For some reason people seem to always compare the Bold to the i-phone... and it's a bit like a motoring review comparing a Mondeo to an MX 5. Both cost about the same, and both are very good at fulfilling certain functions, but clearly they're never going to appeal to the same market!

Let's keep this simple : If you want a smartphone to surf the web, use as a MP3 player all the time, but also send and receive the odd e mail or message with - get an i-phone.

If you want a smartphone that makes sending and receiving e mails a doddle, and you'd also like to surf the web and listen to music sometimes - get one of these.

...it's really that basic!

Let's spoil the story by telling the ending first.
1. Quite possibly the best communication device since the words MOBILE and PHONE got married.
2. It is NOT perfect. There are some (spectacular) flaws to bait critics who are then comprehensively demolished by the no-nonsense approach to BOLDy going about BUSINESS, which is what the (HAL?)9000 is all about.
3. Goodbye "i-Toy"? Not because the 9000 is better, but because the business focus demands you separate the two to such an extent you conclude they defy comparison.

CONTROLS You can "dual thumb" the superb key pad with a fluency that emabrrasses anything with a touch screen including the Apple and BB's own Storm. The trackpoint is a self teaching delight - nothing comes close for ease or flexibility. Combined this must be the end for drumming a stick on your PDA. The display is bright sharp and presents information with executive level clarity. Strictly business - but at it's best but with some glorious touches, BB recogises the protective wallet and shuts off when you return it as well as reading ambient light to adjust screen and backlighting for keys without prompting.

PHONE Only two weak points, numbered keys are small for fast dialing - but it ain't the end of the world, and when you customise the HOME page displays, you can't fix the final locations of your Icons...Yet.

SMARTPHONE You are carrying one of the first generation of "truly" practical handportable computers. It has been done thousands of times before, but if the tools are weak and the keyboard not ergonomic you simply avoid any of the SMART stuff your smartphone is capable of. The Bold 9000 carries a 600mhz chip on board which (for the non-anoraks) makes it as powerful as the laptop you carried in 2000.

I've had my BlackBerry Bold 9000 for 3 weeks now and it exceeds all my expectations. A multi-functional piece of technology that helps me save time and effort when it comes to accessing the information I need.

I've increased the memory up to 8Gb by means of a MicroSD card and it runs smoothly in all applications.

Thanks to Steego in North Yorkshire for recommending this BlackBerry model to me. Cheers mate

If you require a stable business phone with simple to use email facility, this is it! An excellent step up from the brilliant Blackberry 8800 I had previously. It has a slightly bigger key board, is very simple to set up, and feels a better quality piece of kit than the Curve (although I rate them highly also). Battery life seems good, reception excellent, and email a dream on the move. This is the only serious busines phone to have!

Awesome! Had this phone for nearly a week now, everything has connected great with my email account, works seamlessly with my WiFi, is tactile, ergonomics excellent, however loading up the GPS maps application both from RIM and Garmin seems impossible? Coupled with no direct UK telephone support from them am at a loss just now?

Minor issue with that, more novelty but would like it to be there and work on the odd occassion, especially as I'm paying for the 3G air-time. Battery life seems OK having turned off the Bluetooth and can get 2 days out of a new battery of medium use.

So far feel very happy with this one! Think it's a winner and the media player works well, iTunes connectivity is as one would suspect and no link up to downloaded files, but hey ho the headphone jack is on the side not the top which was a design mistake and sums that feature up as an occassional one only... So certainly no direct iPhone competitor even with a 8gb or newer 16gb micro SD card.

But for what it does, yep am impressed. Plus far superior to the Pearl!
