    Hey, really nice review, well done
    Thanks


    One thing about QuickLaunch and SixTools tho, not using a holster and i couldnt care less about some noises these apps make when putting the phone in a hoster (simply because i dont even use a holster), their main purposes obviously are the extra convenience keys and the shortcuts

    And as you said, you dont find them that useful at all, and said its because you're running the phone clean and its so fluid and all that, sure.... But your review also makes me think that you dont really use many apps (cuz you only talked about bbm/sms/email etc)

    Sure then they might not be the most useful apps, when you only have 4 things you constantly do on your smartphone (and these things are always running in the background anyway, so easy to get to them with holding down the menu key), but QuickLaunch + Sixtools become VERY useful when you use more than just 6 apps or so

    I'll be using about 30-40 apps when i'll get my 9900 (get released already please !!) (Not counting things like email/sms/browser/calender and all that, only talking about apps like facebook, twitter, bb app world and 3rd party applications etc)

    So when you add stuff like sms, email, calender, browser and all that, you'll maybe have about 25-30 things you constantly do and use, and another 20+ things you do from time to time

    And when thats the case, i think QuickLaunch and SixTools are a must-have, unless of course you feel like searching for an app for like 15secs or type in 3/4 of the applications name in universal search
    Instant acces to anything you wanna do on your smartphone by just simply pressing 1-2 keys
    I think thats quite awesome and useful

    Well, you actually may get an answer to whatever you asked about. I actually might have answered as well, if I'd been able to get through your post. But your writing style, incl. the bold font and no capital letters make it really difficult to understand.

    Just a thought...

    Yes, if you are someone who has a lot of things running, then for sure, I can see the value.
    They are great apps, well written, and I am impressed with how fast the programmers made them "OS7" ready.
    As for apps I run, well beta testing the app world 3.0 right now (fantastic, by the way), playing with Wikitude, flixster, Blackberry Bridge, BeBuzz, Facebook, Twitter, Rogers My Account, Scoremobile, Weathertrax, and of course BBM. There are some games on there but I don't really play games on my phone as I use them for show off pieces. Don't forget their is some decent 3D processing going on with the Bold now as well.
    Having the panels means I can have one just for my apps and with one finger swipe and click I can run it. If they are running, I hold my berry button down and pick the one running. I guess some apps make it faster to do, but by less than a second maybe. On a phone pre OS6 I think these utilities have a lot more to offer, but kind of like with Windows, as time went on, third party ideas start to get integrated in the next versions and that is what I am seeing here.

    Is the camera worse than the one on the torch or the autofocus ones that came on some previous phones? That is subjective.
    Is it worse on close up shots. Absolutely. Focus isn't as sharp up close. If you are someone who takes pictures of business cards then you won't be doing it from as close anymore. I take pictures of business cards to send back to the office so that someone can add the customer to our database and prep a quote with the proper info on it and I still do this by taking the picture from a little further back and using the built in "crop and save" option. It is still easily readable.
    Is the new camera better at shooting motion. Yup. Without having to auto focus, the picture comes off faster and you don't get as much blurring with motion or out of focus when there is movement.
    Is the new camera better for video. Absolutely, and in my active world with 3 kids playing sports and living life, I take more video now than anything and having the aspect ratio set properly holding the camera upright does make it easier to use and hold as well.
    I have a nice Canon T2i with 18MP of RAW that I can use when I need detail. I need something that is a jack of all trades camera in my phone. This works great for my everyday and I don't miss the autofocus at all.
    Not trying to make one camera sound better than the other, but RIM isn't the only manufacturer using this technology and I am sure we will be seeing it more as phones get thinner.

    well 1st off i made it bold so it WOULD be easier 4 ppl 2 read. 2nd off, i didnt kno we were in english class. i type on message boards, facebook, etc pretty much the same way i type through my texts. now had this been a job application or anything profesional i WOULD have spelled out "to" instead of "2", etc. but seeing as how this is a PHONE forum, im pretty sure we ALL use the common text abbreviations.....if not i kno ur texts take FOREVER 2 send out lolsmh. u make it seem as if i misspelled every word or typed it like Yoda would have. anyway, "thank u" for your "input"....

    just a retort........

    130? That is a great price. I wouldn't be nit picking for less than that, I would be thankful and tell the salesperson that you are going to name your firstborn after him.

    I took my contacts, bbm contacts, and that is pretty much it. I think I took some settings too because my lightsaber phone ring transferred over. No apps, I downloaded them again.

    ok. im thinkin my music and pics should be ok too. not too worried about the apps since they're saved in bb app world. i love the fact that u can get a new bb, log on, and re-download all the apps u had without having 2 remember them all (thanks 2 bbid).

    oh and do u have a screen protector? and if not, do u know if it would affect the touchscreen function?

    I am on my 6th Blackberry (TOUR 9650) and am eligible for an upgrade at Verizon. I am really torn. There is no question that Blackberry is the best productivity device on the market. I am a heavy email (several hundred a day for work), phone and calendar user; and for those needs, the BB is the way to go. A physcial keyboard is essential for my use.
    BUT - - I did use the Thunderbolt for a few weeks when it first came out and the web experience on that class of Android device is spectacular. Web pages, navigation, google maps, reading and editing longer documents, etc. were so superior to any Blackberry. And, LTE is crazy fast, as good as my Comcast broadband at home.
    So, do I carry 2 devices? BB for email, phone and calendar and Droid for web and apps? Or, maybe a BB and ipad or some other tablet?

    Thanks for the details review, I have some questions here about the ergonimic of 9900 compared to torch 9810/10.

    I have big thumb covering 1/3 of normal handphone screen, so full touch screen handphone is definitely out of the way. I like bigger screen and was aiming at Torch 9800 earlier, but once i found out they still use the old CPU I dropped the plan and i know there will be "improved" version after so many complaints.

    There are 2 handphones in my mind, BB 9810 and HP Pre3; but after HP announced the death of Pre3 last week, 9810 becomes the only choice. I almost get one but is holding up because of many says that 9900 is better than 9810.

    1) I see that 9900 trackpad is very close to the screen. Is there a problem when scrolling on the screen the finger accidentally reach the trackpad and the scroll direction becomes messy?

    2) The trackpad of 9810/9800 is not at the same level as keyboard. For those used to standard layout, is that annoying for the thumb to travel between 2 different levels during navigation/typing?

    3) I know it is an offence messaging at driving. How bad (or good) 9810/9800 perform in this situation compared to 9900? I travel a lot and need to do this often. Need to type without looking at the screen and just peer from time to time.

    4) I will use car charger often. When the phone is being charged, how convenient it is to pick up the call using left hand for 9900 and 9810? I see the location of USB port is different between this 2 phones.

    These questions require comment by people using the phone for some times and not easy to tell by just simply visiting to the shop and play for 5-10 mins.


    Other info that i gather about 9900 vs 9810

    - 9900 has unmatched keyboard.
    - 9900 has light around trackpad
    - 9900 screen is glass and 9810 is plastic(?)
    - 9810 has AF camera
    - 9900 has NFC (not important to me)

    Thank you.

    Introduction

    So as a bit of background, about 2 years ago my staff decided to convince me that BB was the way to go instead of the HTC Touch Windows devices I was using due to having access to Word, Outlook, etc. My first jump was to the Storm 2, and even though the reviews weren't great, I enjoyed the phone and it is still operating today unlocked from Telus and being used by my 13 year old who loves it on Rogers. My next step from the Storm2 was to a Torch 9800 when a greasy boss locked my Telus Storm2 (which I owned but used for work) and made it so I couldn't use it (which...Telus...is a garbage way to do things...IT WAS MY PHONE!) so I ended up in February of this year getting the Torch. This was my first BB with a keyboard and I loved it. I found my accuracy to be increased as well as speed of typing messages. There is no substitute for a real keyboard.
    I knew the OS7 versions were coming and my good friend Tamer at Future Shop was excited about the new Bold 9900 that was coming. I told him I wasn't interested and to let me know when the Torch2 was out.
    He sent me a text message the day they all came in and I rushed down to check them out, knowing about the faster processor and more ram as I have 3 kids and regularly use their upgrades for my own evil purposes and they end up getting everything as it funnels down.
    He took the white 9810 out of the box for me to check out, and showed me the silver version as well (I was coming from a white torch). I was getting ready to tell him to get me one when he convinced me to check out the Bold 9900. The only Bold I had played with was one my techs owned, the 9000, and he consistantly told me it was the best phone he had ever used. Being as he is a phone system installer, he is a pretty fussy guy.
    Well, held the Bold 9900. Played with the keyboard. Torch 9810 became a distant memory, and here we are today, 10 days later, having had a period of time to get over any issues and see where I stand today on my purchase.

    Initial Impressions/Build Quality

    The first impression you will make when holding this phone is how thin it is. The second will be how well built it is. There is no doubt that this is RIM's flagship. From the metal (real except for the charging area on the bottom) band around the edge of the phone to the hardened real glass that protects the screen, this is a very well made device.
    It feels tight.
    If you have a playbook, you know what I mean.
    The third impression is formed when you use the keyboard. The Bold 9900 is wider than it's predecessors and that contributes to the great feeling keyboard with just the right tactle response and spacing so that even bigger hands can use it properly.
    On the back, the battery cover has changed and is a "carbon fibre" looking back cover but from what I understand it is not real carbon fibre as that would interfere with the NFC (Near Field Communications) antennae that is built into the cover. Very nice looking with the large BB logo on the back, as well as the word "Bold" between the camera lens and flash. The back edges are done with a rubberized feel like the Playbook back so you have no problem holding the phone.
    It just fits.

    Setup

    So I didn't have a seamless transition from my Torch to my Bold. When I got home with my new device, the first thing I did was to fire up BB desktop and go through the process of switching devices to transfer everything from my one phone to the new one.
    Now I run BES for my work account, have a Shaw personal account, and a Hotmail account that I use for websites. As well as this I was running some utility apps such as 6 tools, quick launch, smart wifi, dropbox, etc. The process seemed painless enough and soon I was playing with my new Bold.
    Here is where some problems started.
    First thing I noticed was it wasn't as fast as I thought it would be. Didn't feel much faster than my old Torch. Then it seemed like one edge of my trackpad was higher than the rest. Then I noticed that the cursor would jump around when I got close to the trackpad, almost like the shadow was making it move. App World would sit and spin not going anywhere when I would click on a new app. Battery was starting to drain faster than expected......hmmmm something was wrong.
    I let my friend Tamer know that I thought I had a lemon and would be down right away. Without any hesitation, he swapped it out for another.
    I set this one up differently. I turned it on and let it go through the setup process where it actually asked me for my BBID right away, which didn't happen on the previous one. Then, instead of swapping info over, I backed up my Torch, and then selectively restored my information, not installing any of my apps this time round.
    Complete difference.
    Now I can see the speed difference. Trackpad was flush. Battery life now normal. App world worked fine.
    IF YOU A MOVING TO THIS PHONE FROM AN OLDER BLACKBERRY FOLLOW THE STEPS I DID AS I ATTRIBUTE MY PROBLEMS TO THE UPGRADE PROCESS.
    Redownload your apps if they are OS7 (I get most of my apps from here so it keeps track and lets me know when they update)
    Was pretty painless having everything on my new Bold inside of a few hours including my BBM contacts, contacts from BES, as well as all my info on my 16GB MicroSD card. (the one that came with my storm2!)


    10 day summary of usuage

    I am more productive.
    I have noticed over the last 10 days that I am getting more done.
    Whether this is because I use this phone more than any other one in my past, or because I am actually faster doing things on this phone than before, I don't know. Probably a combination of the two.
    It still even now is a device I like to hold and use. The novelty hasn't worn off and I am usually like a racoon with attention span so this is impressive.
    I notice the speed both of the network and of the device itself. Things just respond quicker and you don't have a lot of waiting.
    The screen is beautiful. I enjoy the landscape mode so much more than the portrait of my last two phones. After all my TV's and monitors are in landscape so it seems more natural to me to be in the same aspect.
    The touch sensitivity on the screen is dead on. It knows when you are scrolling and when you are selecting something which is very hard to get right. When in doubt, you still have the trackpad for that small login icon that is impossible to hit with a fat finger.
    Before, I would wait to answer a longer email on my computer. Now I don't because of the keyboard. It is the best keyboard on any phone released to date. Not up for discussion.
    Sound is up to Blackberry standards as are the quality of the phone calls.
    Wifi now supports the 5GHz so I can hook up to all radios in my router.
    No problem supporting the video files I have ripped from DVD's and various other sources and they playback smooth with no sync issues. The one area I had problem here with was BB Desktop. Seemed to have problems converting a bunch of my files so I just hooked up through USB and drag and dropped the files onto my 16GB MicroSD and played them that way.
    Music sync, especially wireless setting....is AMAZING. I didn't know about this until yesterday but once I turned that on and pointed it to my music folder on my server, it supplies me my music on demand. Music already on my phone shows up unghosted. Music on my server is ghosted. When I select it, I then wait a short (under a minute) period of time and it is sent to my phone. I can que up a bunch of music and it will upload WHILE I am listening to other music when I am in my wifi zone. Can't say how much this makes managing my music easier. Now they need to do that for Video as well.
    There has been much said about the new camera and I have read both sides and read an article on the new technology behind this always focus system in the Bold. First, for the thinness of the device, it was the only option. Secondly, it is definately better at motion shots. Do you lose the close up macro type of shots that the autofocus camera gave you. Yes. But just take the shots from not so close and then crop. Works fine.
    The video is 720P and is pretty good, even impressive. I took some video of a lightning storm we had here the other night from a parking lot at Chapters and was very impressed in the detail in the clouds considering the lighting nightmare it represented.
    The other issue has been battery life and I keep my wifi and bluetooth on as I am going from car to office to house all the time. I am also on a 3100 daytime minute plan per month so I talk a lot on the phone. Due to the fact that I use Email, BBM, and Text as part of my job 5 days a week I consider myself an above average user. I have not run out of battery yet. I am not trying to run a marathon in this phone because I don't have to. When at my computer I have my Playbook charger to give it a quick boost, in my car I have a car charger to top it off, and at night I dock it in the new BOLD 9900 charging dock. Yes, they are as cool as they look. What I am saying is that the battery is thinner in keeping with the device being thin and I am glad they didn't add to the thickness to add to the battery.
    OS7 is really OS 6.1 and while I didn't expect a lot of difference it is definately faster, and webbrowsing is more enjoyable as the browser is faster by a noticable amount.
    The additions of NFC make this device one of the most future ready devices out there and I sure hope that it is a qnx version coming down the road in the same form factor.
    There are more things I could cover such as Wikitude, but that has been covered by others.
    The only accessories I have purchased has been the charging dock from Blackberry, and the leather case without the belt clip. You get a nice case with the phone but I tend to throw the phone in my pocket instead of clipping it to my belt or pocket. There are some nice thin cases out now for it but I like the feel of things as they are and don't treat my phone like a discus so I have no need for those.
    As far as apps, utility ones I use now are Bebuzz for letting me know by LED lights what messages I have on my phone when I am in a meeting, and the traditional Poynt, Flixster, google maps, etc.
    As a side note to Playbook owners, YES BB Bridge runs even faster! There seems to be a better partnership with OS7.

    Bugs

    So far, I have not had to do a battery pull on my Bold. That doesn't mean I haven't found a bug, but on Rogers OS7 .261 there is a quirk with the back button. When pulling it out of the case sometimes, the back button doesn't take you back but brings up your running programs, or task switcher. The fix is to click the top button to lock it, unlock it, and then everything is fine. Others have noticed this on other providers as well so it is very much a RIM problem to fix. Would be nice to have some apps upgraded to OS7 but again, that will come soon. That is it. Nothing more to report on that front so I am very pleased.

    Conclusion

    Best phone ever? For me. YES. Without question. I am more productive, less frustrated, and more optimistic about RIM's future because of this phone. They have shown me that they know how to make the luxery phone for the business man.
    Does it put some pressure on Apple? Yes, because iphone people are switching over to this phone. I know of three.
    This phone truly lives up to being a smart phone.
    What is impressive is how much RIM got right on release. I know that Android has some nice product but when Norton has a product for your phone.....you need to consider your platform. Little things make the difference, such as being able to really use your phone one handed. Try that on a slider, or a touch screen and see the accuracy.
    I can't recommend this phone enough. Anytime I see someone looking at Blackberries I pull out my phone to show them and by the time I am done they are walking out with one.
    I'm expecting some commission Tamer or some additional discounting!
    If you are close to a hardware upgrade that may cost you a few hundred dollars, and are a business person, then bite the bullet and switch over. You will make up that few hundred in productivity and accuracy in a short time.
    Best smartphone ever.
    YES.

    I enjoyed the phone and it is still operating today unlocked from Telus and being used by my 13 year old who loves it on Rogers.
    I am curious about this, can the Storm2 be used on Rogers? I didn't know it could...

    123berry, yes it can, pm me and I will send you the link to the guys I used to unlock it and they were great and reasonable. You don't get the full speed network but it works great.

    litebulb....boom. You nailed it.
    My kids (3) cost me close to 200 dollars a month so there is no guilt at all of me staying at the top of the tech world in my house because I am paying for 4 people to have phones, including myself. My wife is also on a BB curve 8530 with telus but once she gets done that plan we will move her to Rogers. Just a better network all around when it comes to speed and coverage.
    I have saved my 13 year olds upgrade to the qnx phones next year, and then my son gets a Bold 9900, middle daugher already has a torch 9800 (she got my white one this time round) and my 13 year old will get a torch 9800 as well. I kind of think she will keep her storm2 as she loves it, so my wife will inherit it.

    One handed, bold has no comparison. Very easy to use this way, slower obviously, but usable more so than any other phone I have had.
    Trackpad has not gotten in the way for me at all. I use touch screen for bigger selections, but trackpad arrow for small ones. Browsing is great, and I don't mind the built in maps program.
    Car charging and you don't have a headset, or a speakerphone in your car? I could care less where my charge jack is as it is jacked into the car with bluetooth so I am not holding the phone. That I find dangerous. I drive a standard. 9800 and 9810 feel top heavy to me now. The 9900 is so much more balanced.
    I still play with it, spinning it around in my hand like a card, still amazed at how well made it is.

    bold 9900 and playbook. Great great combo. Fast, bridge browsing works great, and email and bbm on my playbook while my phone is in my pocket.
    I built a base using the center cubby in my car that holds the playbook like it was built for it. Playbook bluetooths to a speaker phone that broadcasts FM so I can play podcasts, etc. Lets me know when I get email and bbm messages as I tether to my bold so I have internet connectivity at all times. I don't answer while driving but if it is important I can pull over and answer off the touch screen of the playbook. Also has the advantage of showing me who is calling before I answer the call with my car system.

    Great review!! So far my BB 9900 has been great, but battery life has been pretty bad. I have made some tweaks and deletions to see if that helps. If it does this is the best BB I have ever had. Great keyboard and touchscreen really makes for an easy and efficient phone which is what I look for. If I want to play games I wouldn't do it on a phone. I could use a PSP or PS3 for that. I use my Mac for internet. I will give it a few days to see if it is better on the battery life.
