I currently use a Blackberry Bold 9900 Smartphone for most of my daily communication. Whether it’s Instant Messaging, chatting, texting, sharing photos, calling a friend, browsing the web, or looking up directions, the Bold has it all. Combined with a sleek, lightweight, stainless steel frame, this device can hold more than 5000 apps serving business needs, social networking, data collection to offering real estate tips. There are currently more than 100000 available for downloads (check http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/). It has 768 MB RAM and up to 32 GB expandable memory with a uSD card, and you can view it on a great 2.8″ Transmissive TFT LCD 24-bit 640 x 480 color display.

Java-enabled, running Bluetooth v. 1.1, providing 3G wi-fi with 4G speeds, and Nuance speech recognition software, the Blackberry 7 OS allows you to organize your apps according to categories such as media, downloads, and frequents. Some of my favorites are:

Tweeker for Twitter which allows me to send tweets from anywhere; Facebook, which allows me to stay connected with my social network at the touch of my fingertips, CameraToGo which I use to snap and upload photos and Viigo, social feeds, and googletalk for exchanging news and e-mail Vlingo Virtual Assistant Voice Recognition Google maps for looking up directions Photo Editor Extreme for organizing my digital prints with 5 Megapixel Camera Lots and lots of games Music Player and T-Mobile TV

The touch screen and QWERTY keyboard offer a smooth and fast typing experience. It runs on a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor and offers dual-band 800/1900 MHz CDMA/EVDO Rev A networks. For service, you can select popular carriers such as Sprint, T-Mobile, U. S. Cellular, AT&T, Cellular South, Cincinnati Bell or Verizon Wireless, and the prices will vary between $199.99 to $299 with at least 2-yr agreement and Classic Talk + Text + Web features. I used to own a Blackberry Torch 9860 and a Curve prior to upgrading to the Bold, and they have provided the same user experience and voice quality. My connections rarely drop, and I get good coverage, though not much international service. I’ve compared it with the iPhone and other smartphones. Though other phones might have more features, I prefer the comfort and ease of use with my BlackBerry. I’ve accessorized it with cool leather pockets, carrying cases, chargers, and hands-free headsets. Most of all, it has a long lasting battery and will give me peak performance for all my techie needs!
