Latest BlackBerry Bold Hands On Video Shows Responsiveness

 Godberry Godberry2

Since BlackBerry World last month I have not seen that much coverage of the unreleased BlackBerry Bold 9900. I was happy to see that PhoneArena got a chance to play around with the device recently and report back. The devices at BlackBerry World were running a pretty early OS but this device seems to be responding beautifully to the reviewers every touch.

I liked the hands on by John because it highlights the biggest feature of BlackBerry 7. By giving the OS double the processor speed it suddenly flies! When is the last time you heard a BlackBerry reviewer calling the device peppy, screaming, effortless, and responsive. Personally I am just happy to see the Bold 9000 style resurrected with a touchscreen. I remember back in the day we used to call the then mythical touch/QWERTY Bold the GodBerry. Check out their hands on video to see what I mean:

They also have a ton of pictures and their full hands on at PhoneArena. Let us know what you think!

Thanks to JJ for sending this one in.

  1. Wow looks slick

  2. Hopefully its coming out soon. Nice looking device

  3. This thing is a beast, release the beast!

  4. It’s nice to see a new video or two of this device. I’m almost heart broken that it’s not on sale till August

  5. omg keeps looking better and better

  6. this is taking way toooooo long to hit the market.. RIM is taking a beating and they are just wasting time . Was looking forward to the Bold but compared to the competition … not that much anymore.

    • What full qwerty keyboard do you feel is better than this phone?

      • It’s a beautiful keypad.. I cannot wait to my fingers all over it… Dear Rim, I will take it AS IS and promise to help tweet ur stocks back up w/my rave and outstanding reviews… Love, Ashley xoxoxoxox -sent priority-

  7. Everytime I see it I hear bwank chica waaaawaaaaa

  8. Does anybody know (for sure…) if it will come with a mobile hot spot feature or not?
    I haven’t heard about it from the early May event and I don’t see anything like that on the official simulator…
    God I hope they didn’t scratch that project…

  9. Taking too long to come but still, will be getting it!

    No matter what iPhone 5 looks like, no matter what droids come out soon, this is the king of keypad phones and it’s damn nice.

  10. Is it here yet?
    How ’bout now?
    Ok, ok, I know its ready now.
    Puleeeezzze give me one now

  11. Can’t wait, tired of waiting actually. This one is my “dream phone” i’ve been waiting for ever since the 9000 came out.

  12. I want them to uninstall a app and i want to see the process from that point. Restarting your phone to uninstall app is stupid.

    • Unfortunately, that probably won’t change until they switch to thr QNX phones.

      But with 40gb and very small blackberry apps. You really don’t have to uninstall anything, just hide it :)

  13. Impressive Bold. I can’t wait to get one of these.

  14. I had the opportunity to use the 9900 the other day. Very slick indeed!!
