Compare Bold 9780 Deals

On the outside, the Bold 9780 sticks close to the design blueprints which have defined this range for several years. You get a 2.44-inch display, a touch-sensitive optical trackpad for navigation and the obligatory QWERTY keypad which makes typing a dream. Anyone who has attempted to type for any length of time using a touch-panel display will appreciate the benefits of switching to a physical keypad more than most.

The BB OS 6.0 platform is the software that will let you get the most out of the Bold 9780. Manufacturer RIM has overhauled the interface to a certain extent, making it much easier to select the apps you want to run and view notifications as they arrive. Social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter have been integrated into the operating system so that you can receive updates direct to the homescreen, although there are still dedicated apps for these services on board, and more available from Blackberry's app store that allow you to connect to all your favourite social media services.

High-speed connectivity is a given on any modern BlackBerry and the Bold 9780 does not disappoint, with both HSDPA 3G and Wi-Fi present and correct. The BlackBerry App World download service can be accessed through either of these connections, allowing you to add practical software and entertaining games to your Bold 9780 while on the move.
