RIM Finally Makes BlackBerry Bold 9780 Official – Coming November

BlackBerry BOld 9780 We have been waiting patiently for RIM to make the BlackBerry Bold 9780 refresh official. There have been hundreds of leaks from videos to spec sheets and even carriers posting the device on their websites. Today RIM finally decided to make an honest device out of the BlackBerry Bold 9780 and saying that it “will be available from various carriers around the world beginning in November.”

The main differences between the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and 9780 is that the 9780 ships with BlackBerry 6 along with 512MB of RAM and a 5MP camera.

RIM actually put up a great comparison site at this link that highlights the differences of the Bold device family.

Other than that the highlights from RIM are:

  • Premium design and finish
  • Brilliant, high resolution color display (480 x 360 pixels, 2.44” diagonal measurement) with support for over 65,000 colors
  • HSDPA support (3.6 Mbps)
  • Built-in GPS and Wi-Fi with UMA support (802.11 b/g)
  • 5 MP camera (JPEG Encoding, CMOS) with Auto focus, Image stabilization, Flash and 2X Digital Zoom.
  • 512 MB Flash, microSDHC memory card slot (up to 32 GB)
  • 624 MHz processor
  • BlackBerry 6, the new operating system for BlackBerry smartphones which includes:
    • Crisp, more immersive visuals, including new icons, graphics and animations
    • New WebKit browser; it’s high-fidelity and very efficient, with tabbed browsing
    • Graphical, context-sensitive pop-up menus
    • Redesigned core apps, plus a new multimedia UI and new apps for downloading podcasts, watching YouTube videos, and integrating RSS and social networking feeds

  1. Looks like they made a mistake on that official comparison link. In the “Memory” section towards the bottom of the page it lists the 9700 having 512MB onboard.

  2. I don’t see me switching to Bold 9780 from my current 9700 Bold. Just for moe megapixel and extra 256 MB….makes no sense… we know that OS 6.0 is coming to Bold 9700 also correct?


  3. How difficult, really, is it to get 1gb of memory or more on these newer devices?! +256mb seems like RIM is adding just enough memory to comfortably run the next OS in hopes of getting you to shell out again for a new device when OS7 hits, of course, by then, it’ll be another +256mb. Oh wait, that’s the point, isn’t it? =) Seems Blackberrys run out of space long before they run out of usefulness.
