Shiny new Blackberry Bold to play with
Typically I will announce a new toy with the title of 'New Toy' or 'New Addition'. For my new Blackberry Bold I've stopped doing that.
It arrived yesterday, courtesy of the lovely Barbara a Vodafone who ordered it as an upgrade from my Blackberry pearl. Unfortunately I wasn't able to play with it since yesterday as I was out (See Cooked Spire and Rain).
I did play with it last night - activating it onto our BES with minimum hassle.
- Fantastic, crisp, high resolution screen.
- Fast video playback
- Nice sounding speakers
- Google Maps picks up my position very very well
- Good camera
- It's a phone
- It's a Blackberry
- 2GB SD card moved from old handset with no hassle
Not quite so good (Bad):
- Flickr uploader refuses to work with the 4.6 OS GRRRRR (sucks)
- Roller ball isn't quite as sweet as the one on the Pearl
- Blackberry Maps suck.
- Larger (in all dimensions) than the pearl - no longer really able to pop it in your pocket
- Battery is %okay%, but I'll review that after a few charges
All in all, very happy with it, even better once I have the Flickr uploader (or something like it) working.
