Keyboard

Like previous models, the Bold's keyboard is outstanding. The roomy layout and good-size buttons are easy to press, and the brightly illuminated keys make it easy to type in darker environments.

Thinnest BlackBerry

RIM says the Bold 9900/9930 is the thinnest BlackBerry yet at just 10.5mm thick. Indeed, it feels slimmer than previous models, while still retaining a premium look and feel with its brushed stainless steel accents. Shown here is the left side, which features a 3.5mm headphone jack and a Micro-USB port.
