    My New Bold

    Advertisement



    Hi people, I know most of you out there are from the US but I in the UK the first network (Orange) started selling the Bold. I was the first to get hold of it from my local shop (it wasn't even on display yet - how sad I know!!!!) Anyway I love it, it is my second bb after owning a Pearl for just over a year. I haven't put it down yet. I'll post more info and feedback when I get more use to it.
    What's the story in America? Is is out yet? All of the other networks over here (O2, T-Mobile etc) have no idea when it'll be available.
    One for you knowledgable people out there...any news on alternative themes. I only have Precision Orange and Precision Silver pre loaded.

    Sad to say; we have to wait a little long here in the US. Something to do with our network or some other stuff. Who knows. But I hope you enjoy your Bold. My I ask; which OS is it running? is it 4.6

    I know I'll be getting one as soon as it comes out but something in my mind tells me since I already have the 4.5 O/S on my Curve I'm going to be a little disappointed. I've played around with the WiFi on the 8820, not a big fan of it and I'm not impressed with the 3G coverage that ATT offers so other than that does anyone know any other advantage the Bold would have over a modded Curve? The phone does still look impressive but we'll just have to see when it comes out.

    kevinfawl, I'm use to things that size!!!!
    Anyway being use to the Pearl the size has taken some getting use to but the leather (or fake leather..not sure) back makes it very stable and not at all slippy in your hand. The design makes it very useable.
    The browser is super quick with wifi and 3G connectivity but when pages load they load full page to the screen which makes them generally too small to read. You then have to zoom in and scroll around to navigate the page which is a little bit of a pain but the speed makes up for any minor imperfections. I don't think there is an option to turn off 3G although there may be and I haven't found it yet. As my Pearl was on 4.2 there is a noticable difference in the overall performance and speed but that is probably down to the processor. I've put a couple of videos on the Bold and they are amazing, the screen quality is just brilliant.
    I'll keep you updated with my Bold exploring!

    That size is perfect for me. I have big hands. I used my buddy's curve and it didn't feel right. it need to be a tad more big.
