The BlackBerry Bold is set to be another big hit for AT&T besides the Apple iPhone. According to our analyses of reader interest the BlackBerry Bold outstrips that of the BlackBerry Storm.
You can argue that the majority of current BlackBerry owners consider the Bold a safe bet for an upgrade that offers more performance and features without changing the way they use a BlackBerry.
The BlackBerry Storm to be available this fall on Verizon is a whole new bag of tricks. It is the first BlackBerry without a physical keyboard. When Apple introduced the iPhone, pioneering the touch screen on mobile phones consumer interest went sky high. The Storm rose attention, but by magnitudes less then the iPhone and also less than the "traditional" BlackBerry Bold.
We will see if things change when the BlackBerry Storm actually starts shipping and early adopters show it to their colleagues at the water cooler. The BlackBerry Bold is anticipated to start shipping next week on October 27th.
