The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9650 picks up where the BlackBerry Tour left off and adds Wi-Fi and doubles the amount of onboard memory. It's not the flashiest smartphone on the block, but a solid messaging device, particularly for Sprint's globetrotting customers. The Bold 9650 is available for $199.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate.

The BlackBerry Bold's design is largely the same as the Tour. It measures the same in height, width, and thickness but is slightly heavier. The Bold also features the same 2.4-inch, 480x360-pixel resolution display and QWERTY keyboard.

One design difference between the Tour and the Bold is that the Bold now has an optical track pad instead of a trackball navigator.

The Bold's camera took great photos outdoors, but indoor shots had a bit of a hazy look to them.
