BlackBerry Bold 9700 Can Cook Your Breakfast…

SAR-report Just kidding but this is a serious issue pointed out by eWeek. The latest cellphone radiation study by the Environmental Working Group lists the BlackBerry Bold 9700 as the highest radiation levels for cellphones released in 2010. It also takes 9th place in the top 10 since the Environmental Working Group started publishing their database online.

Pretty crazy numbers with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 clocking in with a SAR rating of 1.55 W/kg followed closely by the Motorola Droid (1.50) and HTC Nexus One (1.39). Researchers have yet to decide if this radiation is truly bad for you but I still find the range of radiation levels on BlackBerry devices amazing. For example, the BlackBerry Storm 9530 has a rating of 0.57 W/kg which is the 3rd best cellphone out there and the BlackBerry Storm2 9550 has a 1.01 W/kg rating.

  1. 8900 still among the lowest radiation exposure.

  2. Who really cares!! Isn’t those the same people that scare us to death about Global Warming while we’re freezing away in the east cost…? There’s no actual study that supports that the amount of radiation coming out of a cell phone can harm us!

  3. Look up BPA leaching in plastics if you really want something to worry about…

    • Will there’s no universally agreed upon scientific study that conclusively links BPA to any real health problem either.

      Driving a car is far more hazardous to your health than either BPA or cell phone radiation….and far more people kill themselves with cigarettes than will ever be harmed by either.

      • Universally agreed upon studies practically don’t exist though. There are studies though.

        Driving a car is an unavoidable risk. BPA is totally voluntary and if people don’t mind their baby formula, most of their products and about a billion other things getting saturated with it then they are free to keep using it. The irony is that most of it is in food related products, especially for kids and babies.

      • Also I think the fact that a lot of manufacturers are already responding to it is a sign as well…

  4. Also worth noting that the Pearl 8100 was very close to the same number and that phone is quite old.

  5. It seems like Blackberry always has one or two phones in the top ten for radiation emissions. Why they’re retiring popular phones with low emissions is beyond me. I think people are going to demand low emissions in greater numbers as the issue gets more press. People can always block the radiation right on their phones as well with a radiation shield.
