BlackBerry Bold 9930

The Bold 9930 has that familiar slate QWERTY form factor that we've come to associate with BlackBerry. However, it is now clad in high-end materials like a solid plastic shell, curved stainless steel sides, and a smooth glossy back plate. It ships with OS 7, a 1.2GHz processor, 720p HD video recording, Wi-Fi, an improved browser, voice-activated universal search, and more.

Wider is better

The Bold 9930 is certainly wider than its most recent predecessor, the Bold 9700, but is about as wide as the Bold 9000 from a few years ago. This results in a bigger display and a roomier keyboard. The Bold 9930 also marks the first Bold to have a touch-screen display. The graphics are impressive, with crisp and vibrant images, and the touch screen is really responsive as well.
