Blackberry Bold 9000 - Expert Reviews


Research In Motion, known for its typical business oriented phones, manufactured yet another elegant and sophisticated phone that is a step ahead of its elder siblings. Blackberry Bold 9000 is definitely ‘bold’-enough to challenge its rivals that stand in front of him. The Bold family of Blackberry started with this very model, Bold 9000, and further laid foundation to Bold 9700 and the Curve series. The phone was announced on May 12, 2008 and is known for its finger-friendly and more premium keyboard. Blackberry Bold 9000 was succeeded by Bold 9700 and 9650. With a low price tag that Blackberry has put on it, the phone offers various features that are definitely new to this segment and obviously it carries with itself ‘the Blackberry touch’. The phone delivers much more than is expected from it or rather a Blackberry. Not only a business oriented phone, the phone sports various multimedia features. The earliest of the Bold series features an optical trackball instead of the optical track pad that is listed in the recent Blackberry launches. With a numerous advantages, the phone also has some disadvantages such as no video call feature and shaky Wi-Fi service.

Operating system and UI

RIM has definitely improved the styling of its devices in recent years, and Bold has been the turning point. The wider and slimmer Blackberry Bold 9000 looks stunning with the rounded corners and leather textured back. Blackberry Bold 9000 uses Blackberry OS 4.6. The phone is equipped with a 2.6-inches screen having a resolution of 480 X 320 pixels and a pixel density of 222 ppi. The screen gives you 65000 colors and is perfectly visible even in broad sunlight. The phone has an overall height, width and depth of 114 mm, 66 mm and 15 mm. Bold 9000 weighs 136 grams. This lightweight sleek set has an optical trackball. The trackball is perfectly sensitive and sensitivity can be configured accordingly. The four-row QWERTY keyboard is very comfortable and convenient to type. The phone is available in two different colors- Black and White.

Other Features

Blackberry Bold 9000 is bundled with various multimedia features such as polyphonic and MP3 ringtones, vibrate mode and LED indicator. The phone has a 3.5 mm stereo headset jack and a built-in speakerphone. The supported audio formats are MP3, MIDI, AMR-NB, AAC/AAC+/eAAC+, WMA and the supported video formats are MPEG4 Part 2 Simple Profile, H.263, and WMV.It supports most of the popular codecs including DivX and XviD. Even the audio quality is excellent and the music player can be minimized to play in background.


Blackberry Bold 9000 features a 2.0 Megapixel camera with a 3x zoom. The camera gives a resolution of 1600 X 1200 pixels and is equipped with a LED flash. It has features such as image geo-tagging, image stabilization and white balance. The camera experience is definitely not very pleasant and the image quality is not too good. Truth be told, this is the worst performer among all the Blackberries. The video recording is of HVGA resolution and a pixel count of 480 X 320. Video is captured in 3GP format and the video quality obtained from Bold 9000 is definitely poor.


The browsing content of Blackberry Bold 9000 is too good. Meant for this, the phone never lets you down while browsing the Internet. The phone supports HTML browser but does not support flash content. The trackball navigation takes Internet browsing to the next level. Hassle-free surfing and zooming pages is one of the best in this segment. The phone also provides Wi-Fi connectivity with an 802.11a wireless connectivity. The phone also sports tethered modem capability with AT&T’s version.


Blackberry Bold 9000 is fitted with 1 GB internal memory that is expandable up to 8 GB. The memory offered by Blackberry is not up to the mark and should have been more. The space is not enough for storing bundle of songs. The phone features just 128 MB RAM, which leads to lag while running heavy applications and games.

Other Features

Though there are more than 100 thousand games and applications available on Blackberry App World, yet most of them don’t work well on this phone. With a 624 MHz processor and 128 MB RAM, the phone starts responding with slight sluggishness while running heavy games and applications. The already included games in the phone are Bric Breaker, Word Mole, Texas Hold’em Poker, Sudoku and Solitaire.


Blackberry Bold 9000 is equipped with a 1500 mAHR removable/rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which offers a talk time of around 4.3 hours. The stand-by time is 13.5 days and music playback time is 12.8 hours. However, if you use Wi-Fi or GPS, the battery will obviously drain more rapidly. A business-oriented phone ought to have a good battery life, and this phone flaunts it well.


Blackberry Bold 9000 got this one right. It has got all everything right in this field. Network connectivity includes GSM/EDGE/GPRS support and is compatible with 3G for high speed Internet whenever required. It has Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g and Wi-Fi manager takes good care of the connections. It has Bluetooth v2.0 and mini USB port for charging as well as connecting the device to the computer.

Other Features

Blackberry Bold 9000 is one of the top budget business phone in the market. Offering several business tools and utilities, this becomes one of the most desired phone in this segment. Some of the phones such as HTC Chacha and Nokia E71 gave this phone a stiff competition but could not really reach up to the level Bold 9000 set. Bold 9000 has the best keyboard among its rivals and the trackball featured in the phone is unique and definitely beats every other phone in this segment in terms of navigation. But Nokia E71 surely has an edge over Bold 9000 regarding the wide choice of 3rd party applications and its compact design.

Other Features

 May 12, 2008- First of its kind, Blackberry Bold 9000 laid the foundation for the Bold family. It was the first phone in the Bold series and brought about an evolution with its rounded corners and leather textured back. It was succeeded by Bold 9700 and 9659 and the present launches Bold 9900 and 9790 equipped with the latest Blackberry OS 7.0. Now, with just a 128 MB RAM and 624 MHz chipset, it has become just a basic set for the buyers with nothing extraordinary.
