Blackberry bold 9000

An iPhone killer? Are they joking. Please...

BlackBerries are business phones intended for corporate integration and their design is optimized in that viewpoint. Even though there are similarities in the design of both phones (they don't look alike anyways...) I would still not see any copyright infringement.

You can type much faster on it with the qwerty keyboard than with the iphone which takes a long time to type a sentence. But it doesn’t have the visual voicemail that the iPhone does but I am pretty sure Blackberry can get this done on their phones.

RIM's latest embodiment looks pretty much just as you'd expect from the ever-reliable Blackberry and comes equally fulsomely featured with tri-band HSDPA, integrated GPS with geotagging, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 and plenty of multimedia marvellousness shown off by the flashy 480x320 LCD display.

Here are some of the specs:
• 624MHz processor, 480×320 screen, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G, etc. (definitely faster than the iphone)
• The web browser flies. "Loads web pages in 3-4 seconds." (wow)
• The BlackBerry 9000 in its current state runs OS 4.5
• The battery lasts around 4 hours with straight phone calling. (Battery sucks, to be honest, because when wifi is on it sips a lot of battery)
• 1 gb of internal memory (what the?)
