From its lustrous black exterior with satin chrome finished frame and stylish leatherette backplate, to its stunning display, sophisticated user interface and newly designed full-QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Bold smartphone stands as a symbol of accomplishment and aspiration.

The smartphone comes with a half-VGA colour LCD display (480x320 resolution at 217 ppi) that is fused to the undersurface of the lens, making images leap out with stunning definition and clarity. Pictures are vibrant and sharp, while videos play smoothly and web pages, documents, presentations and messages are displayed with exceptional quality and contrast.

The BlackBerry Bold smartphone makes short work of downloading email attachments, streaming video or viewing web pages thanks to its next generation processor. It also includes 128 MB Flash memory, 1 GB on-board storage, plus a microSD/SDHC memory card slot that supports up to 16GB memory cards for storing music, photos and videos.

The smartphone comes with a range of exceptional productivity applications, including phone, email, messaging, organiser, browser and multimedia applications.

The advanced media player can display pictures and slideshows quickly, play movies smoothly in full screen mode and manage an entire music collection. Audio can be played over the handset’s dual speakers in rich stereo sound, and when using headphones or external speakers, the media player gives the user an equaliser with 11 pre-set filters – like “Lounge”, “Jazz” and “Hip Hop” – that boost or soften audio ranges to create the perfect ambiance. A 2 megapixel camera with video recording capability and built-in flash with digital zoom helps complete the picture.
