Research in Motion has recently announced the Canadian company will be releasing a couple of new smart phones. The Bold (2) 9700 and Storm 2.
I dont hold much interest in the Storm 2 as I am not a fan of touch screen.
I currently own the Bold 9000 and also the Curve 8900. These are two of the best phones built by the Canadian smart phone maker in my opinion. However, this new 9700 will and has caught many peoples attention. Why you ask? Just think of the two phones I own meshed into one! The Bold 9000 is supplied by my work and since I didnt want to have 2 phones strapped to my waist, I opted to get the 8900 Curve. The 8900 stays in my pocket (this is for my personal/own business). I always wished that the curve would have 3G and the Bold be a bit smaller like the curve…. low and behold, the new 9700 Bold!!! Needless to say that I am very excited. The camera on the 8900 Curve is phenomenal. The camera on the Bold 9000 sucks! I can hammer on the Bold 9000 keyboard faster than on the curve 8900; i have read from boy genius reports that the keyboard on the 9700 has been improved.. better than the 8900, similar to the Bold— in the 8900 form factor…
Once I pick this baby up I will post some pics and do a write up on it.
