Blackberry Bold on O2

The Blackberry Bold is now available on O2 for a around €249 depending what contract you sign up for. A while back there where some complants about the Bold’s firmware and it was causing software issue for Orange customers in the UK so much so they stopped selling it for a while. Even AT&T in the US delayed its launch.

But heres hoping that these issues are now all fixed. The design gives the Bold a slick look you can see that it draws its shape from the Curve and the 8800. The keyboard is a full QWERTY and RIM has somehow finessed the design to make it far more usable. The screen is a 2.6-inch panel given 480 x 320 VGA and you can see they have also worked on the extra screen space and make good use of this.

The screen is really complemented by the new look of the BlackBerry OS 4.6 and makes use of the Bold’s higher resolution. Bold introduces HTML support in its email client, which is about thime (It’s not 100% native HTML). The Documents to Go applictaion enables users to read Word, Excel and PowerPoint in Microsoft Office formats

The phone supports AVI and MPEG-4 formats plus the DivX and XviD codecs, along with WMV and 3GP clips and the web-browser has also had a makeover. The 2.0 megapixel camera and GPS radio adds the option to geotag your photos.
