Recycling a mobile phone? Blackberry Bold 9700 "excellent purchase"

The Blackberry Bold 9700 has received a positive review

The newly-updated Blackberry Bold 9700 represents an "excellent" choice for business users thinking of recycling mobile phones and taking advantage of the latest mobile technology.

Just recently, Research in Motion (RIM) won praise for the upgrades to its popular touchscreen device, the Blackberry Storm2.

Now, the Bold 9700 has been welcomed as a sleeker, even more user-friendly version of its predecessor, offering both business and non-business the ability to keep in touch and stay on top of work while on the go.

According to a new review from ZDNet UK, the new Bold 9700 boasts the most user-friendly keyboard of any smartphone, despite its compact size.

What's more, the screen has also benefitted from little changes, with the upgrade to 360 by 480 pixels allowing for a "sharp and bright" display, though sound-wise, the device's headset is predicted to prove unpopular with consumers used to high-quality sounds on the move.

But, as with any Blackberry, it is the features of the new Bold which are likely to prompt many people to recycle mobile phones and invest in an upgrade, with mobile email and Word to Go applications particularly useful to business users.

"The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is an excellent all-rounder," the review concludes.

At the same time, the site has questioned the merits of the Samsung Galaxy i&500 given its limited battery life.
