G-Spot: Blackberry Bold
The Bold and the Beautiful...Find out why it's called BOLD!
All the hype and hoopla for this phone, for the last several months have been put to the test - The Blackberry Bold delivers! Its more than just a phone, it's an oasis for business professionals. Blackberry has thought of pretty much every format and feature they can think of so users can keep on going without breaking their gait. The list of features for the Blackberry Bold tells it all; multimedia messaging and viewing has never been so easy and convenient.
For a gadget that is well-versed with every need a business professional would have, you expect the price to be higher than other smartphones. Rogers is selling the Bold at $400 with a 3-year contract ($100 more than the iPhone) and $800 without the contract. It's up to consumers to determine whether or not the price is worth it.
