I'm mostly disappointed in the name. BlackBerry Bold is a HORRIBLE name.

I'd improve battery life and make sure it had a user replaceable battery.
Oh wait - that's the iPhone.

Sorry

I am most disappointed that it is not in my hands yet.

If I were King, I would definitely improve on that matter, immediately.

stupidly huge menu, back, call and end button. I don't like how curved the perimeter is either. It also needs to be available already.

Are there any other owners of a Bold that have wanted improvements?

Yeah, the 8330 is at 1.54. I think both the Bold and the 8330 would be in the top ten in the US for radiation levels. Not that it necessarily means anything.

Its in the SAR report in the FCC documents. I have a printout on my desk of the SAR values of many Blackberry devices. It comes from our health provider as we have some users that clock thousands of minutes per month of usage.

I agree that with a physical keyboard, its hard to have a big screen. I remember an old sony device that had is keyboard flip down to reveal a large screen. Something like that might work.
