RIM finally took the covers off of the highly anticipated and much-rumored BlackBerry Bold smartphone. RIM wants you to think of the phone's beautiful display when you think of the "Bold." The BlackBerry Bold is no doubt beautiful, at least for a BlackBerry anyways. So everyone, please say and give a warm welcome to the all-new BlackBerry Bold.
The BlackBerry Bold features a 480x320 pixel resolution, 65,000-color display, a new design that looks much more elegant than previous BlackBerry models. The Bold sports curvier edges and a silver trim complementing the black casing. Flip it over, and you'll find that RIM has added a leatherette texture to the back. The days of cheap and slippery plastic are gone. RIM intends to sell replaceable backplates in different colors, including blue, gray and red. The Bold weighs 4.7 ounces and measures 4.5-inches tall by 2.6-inches wide and only 0.5 inches deep. The blackberry Bold also has a new QWERTY keyboard that's a more modernized version of the Curve. People who have used the new layout have commented that it's pretty easy to use thanks to its "large-ish" buttons with some spacing between the keys.
