    BGR just did a review of the 9650 and a comparison of it to the 9700. One of the issues he touched on was how music played louder and better on the 9700 since it has 3 music-devoted speakers versus just one on the 9650(and the Tour). I know the Bold 9000 has 3 music speakers and is considered the best sounding BB.How many does the 9700 have? Thanks.

    Coming from a 9000- my 9000 definately was a lot better than the 9700 I have now. If you place the 9700 face up, the hole for the sound to come out of is covered and it sounds muffled (right above the camera). On the 9000 there were 3 holes for the sound to come out of (1 by the standby button, and 1 above the headphone jack & 1 by the volume button). You have to place the 9700 face down for it not to sound muffled.

    No,I just wanted to know how many speakers play music on the 9700. I always thought it was just one but BGR said it had the same number as the 9000.

    There's 1 speaker.

    Speaker:
    While the Bold offered three different audible speaker ports (one on each side and one at the top) for pretty accurate sound reproduction, the BlackBerry 9700 uses a single opening towards the top part of the back of the device. This works fairly well and sound, uh, sounds good. We did notice a volume decrease compared to the Bold, but not by much. Maybe around 15% lower? Nothing is going to beat that Storm 2 speaker, though…

    Thank You. I thought it would be easy to clear up.On a side note, I didn't realize the Storm2's music speakers were considered better than the 9000's though.
