Seriously speaking if I were you at this moment, browsing through websites reading reviews with the cash plugged in my wallet, I would surely have bought it by now. It is definitely worth the price and its powered with many great apps and has a...

If you own the previous version of the Bold pass this by. If not and you're in need of a business phone with push e-mail and solid web functionality, the 9780 is worth your money....

I will end with a typical phrase of constant BB users that after one week of use you feel like getting the mail and other proprietary services as well. Despite the illogical menu the model makes you addicted even with all possible downsides. Do you...

The 9780 is a good device and comes across as a capable business phone with a no-nonsense attitude. It is certainly more pocketable and compact. The new OS does give the platform a refreshing look. The device manages email and messaging very well and...

Honestly, there isn’t much to talk about the Bold 9780 except for the fact that it is the first non-touchscreen BlackBerry device to come with version 6.0 of the BlackBerry OS. With Brian having done in-depth coverage of the BlackBerry Torch 9800...

Research In Motion (RIM) hasn’t taken a step in a Bold (excuse the pun) new direction with the new 9780. Instead the Canadian smartphone manufacturer has enhanced what was good with the old Bold 9700 and addressed its issues. Same old, same old in...

Blackberry 9780 might just looks like the previous bold series phones, but it features some serious changes under the hood in both software and hardware. Moreover, the Bold III feels sturdier and is more comfortable to use as well.The 9780 does not...

Being basically the same phone as its former but with new software, the Bold 9780 makes no great leaps forward for the BlackBerry brand, but it's still a solid...

For current BlackBerry users who aren't interested in a touchscreen device, the BlackBerry Bold 9780 comes highly recommended: it possesses a great keyboard, best-in-class e-mail capabilities and a refreshing new interface. However, it offers little...

Overall, the operating system on this phone is still quirky and takes time to get used to, but once youre familiar, OS6 is a decent enough set-up. Beyond that, this is a gentle upgrading of hardware design and spec, but since the previous Bold...

With touchscreens all the rage, the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 might seem like a bit of a throwback. But its superb keyboard, good battery life stand it in good stead - and the revamped operating system gives it a new lease of life. Research In Motion...

BlackBerry still seems to be finding its way in this ever consumer-centric, touchscreen-dominated smartphone world, with its latest touchscreen option, the , getting a mediocre response and the company recently slipping out of the top five...

The Bold 9780 is definitely an improvement over the previous Blackberry handset generation. Not because of the hardware, but a vastly improved operating system. The OS6 not only looks better, but also offers a more streamlined navigation path.While...

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a pretty solid RIM device. Just like the Bold 9700 before it, the 9780 gives you excellent build quality, smooth performance and the corporate grade email and data security. If this is the kind of phone you are looking...

An acceptable successor, by implication, is meant to do what its predecessor managed to do, and in the process, improve upon it. From the exterior, it would seem as though you are looking at another Bold 9700 instead of the newer Bold 9780. Handling...

The BlackBerry Bold 9780's key new feature is OS 6, as many of its physical and technological specifications are unchanged from its the 9700 model. The ergonomics are mostly fine, but we'd have preferred to see a faster processor in addition to...

Because we were truly enamoured with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and impressed with BlackBerry OS 6.0, we thought that combining the two into the Bold 9780 would provide a fantastic user experience. Sadly, the two just aren’t that compatible and...

It can be a bit tricky to review a device like the BlackBerry Bold 9780. Compared to the model it succeeds, the Bold 9700, not much is changed as far as the hardware goes. But then, in RIM’s defense, the Bold 9700 itself is a pretty sweet device...
