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.
