Bold by name and by nature, this terrific handset marries practicality with good looks to devastating effect. That's in no small part because it runs the latest, greatest version of phone maker Research in Motion's BlackBerry operating system OS6.
This simple but deceptively sophisticated interface makes the Bold 9780 much easier to use than earlier handsets in the BlackBerry line. And it has brought advanced social networking functions to the range, with live updates smoothly integrated into a single area to make it easy to keep up to date with friends and family. You can also update your own profiles directly from your phone too.
And adding to the 9780's appeal is the presence of the BlackBerry Messenger app, which comes pre-installed when you buy the handset. This excellent, free to use app is rated as the best instant messaging tool around and packs in everything you'd normally expect from a desktop chat equivalent.
