BlackBerry Bold 9780 officially launched


BlackBerry Bold 9780 finally hits the Philippine shores after being released worldwide last November.

RIM today announced the BlackBerry Bold 9780, the latest addition to the more premium BlackBerry Bold series of smartphones which now runs on  the  new  BlackBerry 6 operating system.  It is pretty much identical to its predecessor: the BlackBerry Bold 9700 with a few minor improvements such as higher RAM which allows for better multitasking, better camera, and the latest OS.

Here are the specs of the new BlackBerry bold:

Screen: 2.44″ with 480 x 360 pixels resolution

Processor: 624MHz Processor

Memory: 512 MB Ram

Capacity: 256MB, expandable to 32GB.

OS: BlackBerry 6 OS

Camera: 5MP, Auto-focus and LED Flash

Connectivity:  Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, HSDPA, BlackBerry Internet Service

Dimensions: 109 x 60 x 14 mm at 122g

Battery: Standard battery, Li-Po 1500 mAh

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 isn’t exactly a significant upgrade from the BlackBerry bold 9700. If you don’t have one yet or are upgrading from a Curve, this may be a good option considering it’s one the best non-touchscreen BlackBerrys out there. On the other hand, if you’re a BlackBerry 9700 user who’s looking for a replacement phone, it might be better to hold on to your cash a bit longer. Unless of course, you pretty much want the same phone.
