The Blackberry Bold 9780 mobile phone was released at the end of 2010, and at the time was the company’s flagship product.

The Blackberry Bold 9780 is targeted at directly replacing the Bold 9700, although it’s actually very similar in design. Where the 9780 really stands out is the operating system, as it uses the new BlackBerry 6 OS. This provides extra features such as social feeds, universal search and improved handling of various types of media. Compared to the 9700, the Blackberry Bold 9780 phone also has a much improved camera, with 5MP instead of 3MP.
Other good features of the Blackberry Bold 9780 are a very powerful messaging system – something which you would expect from a RIM phone – and a fully functional new browser which makes browsing the internet a lot more enjoyable. The phone’s OS features, such as better support for social networks, are also welcome.
It isn’t all good though, as there are a few minor problems mentioned in online Blackberry Bold 9780 reviews. These include that the OS would function better with a touchscreen phone and that the keyboard wasn’t as large as some reviewers would like. Compared to Android and iOS, the interface lacks sparkle and feels a bit boring. Whether this is something that worries you depends on what you want from a smart phone.
Overall, if you’re looking for a high quality phone that’s built for messaging and email then the Blackberry Bold 9780 is definitely a good choice. It still has the famous keyboard which has made RIM phones so popular, while the new OS helps it to catch up with other smartphones on the market.
