  1.  BlackBerry Bold 9700 very simple review

    Posted: 

    For the simpler individual who may not want to make use of all the fancy functions on this phone, but would like the ability to receive email, SMS, call and have a few decent apps, then maybe this will help. Essentially that's all i want from it...

    I needed a change and the iPhone, although very good, just didn't appeal to me. I like proper buttons.

    The Blackberry 9700 is a lovely handset. Altho it takes a bit of time to get used to the QWERTY keyboard (maybe not so good if you have particularly broad thumbs) i have grown to love it. Having emails sent directly to me from my accounts makes life very easy, and you can manage it by either deleting it from you handset email only, or the handset and full email account(!) SMS and media messaging is pretty straighforward - lays it out nicely so you can see the full conversation with the other person. Clear screen, easy connectivity and the small touch mouse is easy to use (and its sensitivity can be altered to you). Standby function and a bedside function which you can set to enter at a certain time of night every day in case you're so tired you forget to switch it to voicemails only, or not to receive emails etc. Brilliant! The camera is pretty good with a flash function. 3.2MPixels isn't the greatest but it does the trick. I have a proper camera instead. I don't want to put my whole like in my phone(!)

    Overall, i bloody love this phone and although it may not be perceived to be as 'cool' as an iPhone, i very much think it is.

    Also, the leather on the back makes for an interesting texture contrast...
