The BlackBerry Bold is the next work horse BlackBerry based on the latest information on sale from AT&T Wireless on October 27th. If you know someone you love with a totally worn out BlackBerry then he or she earned the new shiny BlackBerry Bold. The Bold is already shipping in Europe and is said to be the best BlackBerry yet.

Features of the Blackberry Bold 9000 include newly designed full-QWERTY keyboard, display with 480x320px resolution, tri-band HSDPA, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g), 624 MHz mobile processor, 128 MB Flash memory plus 1 GB on-board storage memory, microSD/SDHC memory card slot, 2MP camera with built-in flash and 5x digital zoom, and integrated GPS.
The Bold is not as flashy as the BlackBerry Storm, but there is no risk in terms of usability as it works the same as previous BlackBerry phones. The BlackBerry Storm with its touch-screen only interface is only for early adopters or casual BlackBerry users.

The Good:
