First Look: RIM BlackBerry Bold 9650 (U.S. Cellular)

1:25 /

The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9650 is one of a few phones that will please globe-trotting U.S. Cellular customers.

-I'm Nicole Lee, Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at the RIM Blackberry Bold 9650 for US Cellular. It has pretty much the same design as the RIM Blackberry Bold 9650 for Sprint and Verizon Wireless. It has a very nice colorful display. Underneath that, you do get the typical Blackberry keys: the call key, the menu key, the optical track pad which we find really nice and useful. You also get the back key and end/power key. The keyboard, as you can see here, is quite roomy and very tactile. On the back is a 3.2 megapixel camera. They Blackberry Bold 9650 is a world phone, which means it can work on both CDMA and GSM networks. When you're in the US, you can us US Cellular's CDMA network; and when you're abroad, you can swap in SIM card to use a GSM network overseas. Features of the phone include the usual Wi-Fi, GPS, stereo Bluetooth as well as very robust e-mail and messaging functions. A couple of other applications that come with the phone include a Twitter app as well as a Tone Room Deluxe app, which is US Cellular's ring tone store. The RIM Blackberry Bold 9650 is a $160 on a new 2-year service agreement with US Cellular. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the RIM Blackberry Bold 9650 for US Cellular.
