New BlackBerry Bold to compete with iPhone

Research In Motion (RIM) has unveiled the very latest BlackBerry handset that looks to compete directly with the Apple iPhone. The redesigned handset is now smaller and has improved speed, functionality and power.

The new exterior is a slick combination of black and satin-chrome and has a leather-like backplate. This new addition also sports a newly-designed, easy-to-use keyboard.

“The new BlackBerry Bold represents a tremendous step forward in business-grade smartphones” said RIM president and co-chief executive Mike Lazaridis.

Included is a web browser that offers a full-page web view much like on the iPhone, where users can view full HTML pages instead of trimmed-down mobile versions.

The BlackBerry Bold supports, for the first time ever, tri-band HSDPA. It also comes with integrated GPS and compatibility with the Wi-Fi networks 802.11a/b/g. It has a 624 MHz processor and 1GB onboard RAM as well as 128MB of Flash Memory plus a slot for microSD/SDHC.

A 2MP camera with video recording capability and built in flash is included and the new display is a stunning 65,000 colour LCD (480×320 resolution).

It will be interesting to see how the iPhone fares with hot competition such as this.
