Overview of BlackBerry Bold 9780
Sometimes it is the small changes that make the biggest difference.
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is an evolution of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 with a few small differences that make a big difference to you, the user.
The major advance in this device is the BlackBerry 6 Operating system, which makes it easier than ever to integrate your social networks such s Twitter, Facebook and RSS feeds. Accessible all in one place you personal and business life can integrate without hassle.
A new web browsing experience ensures that when you check out your favourite web shop or news site the experience is as good as it possibly can be on a phone, you can even have multiple pages open at one time.
A feature rich phone the 9780 has Bluetooth, Wifi and 3G as standard. Wherever you are you can ensure you can connect to the internet and to peripherals like car kits for hands-free communication.
As with other BlackBerry devices GPS technology is built into this phone so you can if required, navigate from point A to B with ease.
A 5 megapixel camera with LED flash offers a way of capturing those moments whether is be still photos or video. Perfect for business or personal scenarios, capture the image and use the email or MMS abilities of this device to forward onto friends or colleagues.
As with all BlackBerry smartphones, the Bold 9780 has BBM, or BlackBerry Messenger to those who have not heard of it. BBM is a FREE, BlackBerry to BlackBerry instant messaging service that can save you time and improve your speed of communication.
Built to be used for communication, whether it is text messaging, email or voice calls the 9780 can handle it. A powerful processor and efficient operating system means that multiple tasks can be handled at the same time without loss of performance.
If you are a high flyer it is likely that you compose many emails a day, and if your a bit of a socialite then texting others about the plan is likely to be common place. Both could involve entering lots of data and text. This is where the 36 key front facing QWERTY keyboard comes into play. Ergonomically designed the key layout follows that of the Bold 9700 and ensures the 9780 is a naturally successor.
When it is time to kick back and relax the 3.5 mm audio jack can be used o connect your favourite headphones and play back audio tracks stored on the phones memory. Or if it is a movie that you want to watch, then the Bold 9780 can deal with that too. Access a film you have stored on a MicroSDHC memory card that sits securely in the device and watch it on a 2.44” high resolution display which provides a colour rich and a crisp image as well as a more than acceptable audio experience thanks to the in built speakers.
