You'll be able to try out LG's first curved phone from Friday.
Constructed from premium materials and designed for maximum sleekness, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 teams powerful functionality and high performance with devastating looks.
With a satin chrome finished frame, burnished black exterior and stylish leather-like backplate, a sophisticated user interface and full Qwerty keyboard, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 stands out even among premium handsets.
Among the outstanding functions of the phone is the ability to talk while sending and receiving e-mail or accessing the web and downloading Word, Excel or Powerpoint files, so that you can maximise the time you have available. Additionally users can edit and work on these documents with the preloaded DataViz Documents to Go suite.
Also incorporated in this stunning phone is a two megapixel camera with video recording capability, digital zoom and flash and a media player, which enables you to view videos and listen to music while on the movie. The media player is equipped with an equalizer with 11 preset filters – like "Lounge", "Jazz" and "Hip Hop" – to boost or soften audio ranges and create the perfect sonic ambiance. Meanwhile, internal memory of 128MB and scope for adding memory sticks means there is plenty of room for storing all your favourite tunes.
Other features of the BlackBerry Bold 9000 include Bluetooth connectivity, MMS, text and instant messaging, Java games, voice recorder, organiser and voice dial.
BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion (RIM) is known principally for its business-focussed handsets which offer users e-mail functions well in advance of rival mobile phones. The BlackBerry Bold 9000 is equipped with similarly high-grade messaging capabilities but adds superb entertainment features in a bid to attract the mass market.
Consequently, the handset comes with a music player that offers excellent sound quality and a clear, crisp screen that makes viewing videos a real pleasure. And just as impressive is the range of games available, including EA’s peerless sports titles and the Sims series.
Prior to its release, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 was touted by many as RIM’s challenger to the iPhone. But while both handsets share a touchscreen and a range of entertainment options, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 was the mobile phone of choice for those who need a handset to perform business functions as well as keep them entertained.
This was due in part to the fact that, unlike the iPhone, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 houses a full Qwerty keyboard that makes entering large amounts of text much easier than on a touchscreen. Another factor was that although the iPhone lets you view documents, it does not offer you the chance to edit them.
