Blackberry Bold Official Introduction
 
YouTube - BlackBerry Bold Official Introduction

It looks like someone is ready to launch this thing immently. The OS looks a lot nicer and faster than what we've seen with the beta.

Hope you all enjoy this clip.

My apologies. I must have missed it.

What was the nature of the controversy?

The Bold will be launched within 2 weeks from the best info we have. If Rogers holds to what they said internally it will be this coming week. If not Tmo Germany should launch the week after. www.blackberrynews.com has the dates.

Ya, that's cool. I'm in no rush- enjoy the anticipation, don't let it consume you with negative emotions 8-)

I just thought the vid was a little different than what we've seen previously because it seems to show a better quality display and resolution.

Simulated? You mean those are real screenshots?

That's very misleading isn't it?

Cory Scheuer 07-27-2008 05:02 PM

ahahhahahahaha DORK!! yea it is kinda creepy...

and of course the screens simulated... watch the vid closely, you can see the "hand" mvoing through the different screens on the device but he never hits the back button or end button to go back to the home screen... lol

ooo.. The bb bold looks insane. They really need "cool" devices out now to compete against IPhone, Instinct, etc

torberry 07-27-2008 05:36 PM

I just looked at the vid again. While I agree that it's probably a vid file playing on the device, it still manages to capture the high resolution and speed of it.

I think this will be a pretty decent advancement over the curve in terms of space and memory storage for songs and photos. That's really the only big benefit that I can see from it. I think the 3G doesn't over a whole lot of real progress.

Blackberryer 07-27-2008 05:41 PM

I really wish there was a legit release date for AT&T. If the mid-August rumors had held up, I was contemplating taking my 3G iPhone back and going phone less for a couple of weeks just to get the Bold. If it's been pushed back to maybe September 1st or later, no way I can do that.

I guess three years of development just wasn't enough.

Cory Scheuer 07-27-2008 05:46 PM

blackberryer is has nothing to do with RIM at this point... its all on the carriers...

While it is definitely an advancement, I don't see any great benefit to it.

bigwillokc 07-27-2008 05:55 PM

there are plenty of advantages to it...
 
I for one, am an avid jivetalk user and currently on my curve, if i spent more than a couple of minutes on a phonecall, it signs you out of jivetalk. that won't be the case on the bold.

Cory Scheuer 07-27-2008 06:45 PM

And if you are a huge business person, where you email and talk on the same BB then when you are on a call you don't have to worry about not getting emails... Instead they come in right away and you can reply to them right away as well.

And also, you could be on a call and need to look something up on the net fast! While on the call open the browser and find that info 3 times as fast then compaired to EDGE all will on the call and not having to say I'll call you back so I can find that info.

There are HUGE benefits to having 3g with simultanious data and voice

I love the screen, I love the OS and the 3G, but I'm sorry, I hate the looks of this phone. Reminds me too much of the 8800 series. Too big and I never liked the look of those either.

You know, I don't mind the size that much. I wouldn't prefer a brick, but I do like the feeling of something when it's a bit substantive. That's why I think the iPhone has the most perfect form factor out there. Small enough for jean pockets, but it *feels* like a solid piece of equipment.

my thoughts exactly hahaha

sjohns2 07-28-2008 08:06 AM

I wonder if AT&T could be waiting until the 30 day grace period is up for those that purchased the iPhone 3G so they can't bring them back to exchange for the Bold. I know there are several people on this board (including myself) that have purchased the iPhone and would consider exchanging for the Bold after a closer comparison.
I doubt that's the reason, but it's a thought.

nandosze 07-28-2008 08:20 AM

I don't think thats such a crazy thought. Imagine all the returns from people that just don't get what they need out of the iPhone. Its a great phone for the right person. Me, I love my Curve and now with the 8GB card I have all the media I need for now. C'mon BOLD, I cant wait!!!!!
