BlackBerry Bold 9700 – Hands-on Photos

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 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!

You can check out all the images by clicking here.

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.

The new BlackBerry Bold 9700 isn’t a reinvention of the original BlackBerry Bold, after all, BlackBerry’s continuing to sell the original Bold 9000, but rather a refinement of its key features.

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 The metal casing has been replaced by plastic, and a few millimetres have been shaved from its shell.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.


  1. Here is my latest theme. Over 80 new icons were used. Everything is modified in this theme and it’s worth checking out… As usual this theme is 100% FREE.

    I will consider any reasonable requests regarding the functionality of this theme that are posted on this thread.

    Thanks and Enjoy!
