As you’ll know if you saw the post from Simon the other day, the new BlackBerry (NSDQ: RIMM) (9700) is now official. Our friends over at Electricpig.co.uk… have gone wild on the BlackBerry Bold 9700, with seemingly an avalanche of pictures for your general edutainment! These are not product shots, but really good quality ‘user-generated’ (well they generated them at least) images – certainly worth a look if you are considering a purchase!

We’ve been manhandling the BlackBerry Bold 9700 all morning. Check out its cutesy new curves and reassuring heft in our first hands-on photos.
It’s still as solid as the original, but BlackBerry’s trimmed some of its bulk. The metal casing has been replaced by plastic, and a few millimetres have been shaved from its shell.
Around the back, RIM has trimmed back the leather-look coating to cover just the battery panel. It still feels great in the hand, but not quite so beefy.
