Boldly going where no BlackBerry has gone before, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 for AT&T — also known as the Bold 2 — is the smallest and lightest BlackBerry yet to boast both 3G support and WiFi for high-speed web browsing and emailing.

The slender Bold 2 features many of the same design elements of the more brawny original Bold 9000, including a faux leather backing, attractive and functional ridged QWERTY keyboard, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a prominent Bold logo on the back.

Despite its notable familial similarities, the Bold 2 offers an upgraded camera/camcorder and BlackBerry OS 5.0 which brings improved functionality including threaded text messaging for an easier-to-follow conversational messaging view. Armed with a 624MHz processor, the Bold 2 is impressively speedy and could very well inspire some jealousy in its older sibling.

Check out Wirefly’s unboxing (at right) for a closer look at the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and to see what comes along in the box.

  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 is impressive when we talk about speed compare to other siblings, so cool.

    I have an 8900 Curve. I have read and heard that there is a way to make my cell phone a wifi core–that is, so as to allow me to hook up to the internet from my laptop when my cell phone is activated for this us.
    I went to the local T-Mobile store and that confirms that my expections are valid, but did not know how to do it. I was told that I could “just log onto tech support, and be at my desktop and have my cell phone in hand” and they would lead me through the proceedure.

    How do I reach this person?

  • I think your video presentation was the worst I have ever seen. The voice was talking about how the phone worked and the picture was stuck showing how to get the phone out of the box. We never got to see the phone turned ou. Text messaging was discused but it was never shown. The worst presentation I have ever seen!The presentation may have influenced my decision to buy or not to buy. Very bad!!
