BlackBerry Bold 2 aka BlackBerry 9700 got messed with by the folks of, who “crashed” the launch party of the handset in Germany. They took it for a spin and compare it with the original Bold. What they came up with, you can find out after the break.


First of all, BlackBerry Bold 9700 gets a better CPU, which means faster web browsing and upgraded video playback. As far as styling is concerned, you get a Curve-like design, a slimmer waistline and a smaller screen, with a 2.4 inches diagonal. There’s a 3.2 megapixel camera on board, plus GPS and the new Bold supports 3G and WiFi connectivity.

Battery life has also been improved, in comparison with the first model and there’s also a 3.5mm audio jack on board for music fans. It’s very important to mention that the trackball has been replaced with a touch sensitive trackpad. BlackBerry Messenger is also upgraded, allowing the users to connect with their friends simply by scanning unique barcodes with their cameras.
