The BlackBerry® Bold™ smartphone embodies elegant design – without sacrificing the features or functionality you expect from a premium smartphone. Well this is the official statement in the BlackBerry Website. Well Bold turns out to be the official name of the device we have come to know as the 9000.

ITS Rumored to contain a 624-Mhz Marvell Tavor PXA930 processor, 320-by-480 screens, HSDPA or EVDO networking, Wi-Fi, GPS, and support for up to 16GB MicroSD cards.
The Tavor platform integrates the HSDPA modem and applications processor on one chip, letting RIM maximize battery life, Lazaridis said. With the built-in 1500 mAh battery, RIM expects to get five hours of talk time and 13 days of standby.
One very unusual feature is 1GB of onboard, AES256 secure memory, for corporate IT managers to store confidential data in.
- Runs BlackBerry OS 4.6
- 480×320 pixels screen
- Size: 4.5×2.6×0.5 inches (it’s taller and wider than the Curve), weighs 4.7oz
- Interchangeable color back plates
- Standard 3.5mm headphone jack
The new OS 4.6 includes DataViz’ DocumentsToGo, which allows BlackBerry users to read and edit Microsoft Word and PowerPoint documents; though, oddly, not Excel spreadsheets. HTML e-mails are shown in their full graphical glory. The HTML browser displays Web pages in desktop format.
New desktop software integrates Roxio’s media platform better than before, making it easier to transcode music and video to play on the device. The spec sheet specifically promises iTunes integration, which we thought was interesting. Video plays at 30 frames per second in full screen mode.
The browser may also support rich media, such as Flash, in the future, Lazaridis said.
“We’re adding all kinds of stuff,” he said.
As told by BLACKBERRY CEO Mike Lazaridis
