Pc Mag rates the Bold
Here's part of the review; "The BlackBerry Bold delivers high-speed browsing and powerful messaging capabilities, and it represents a major step up in form and function over existing BlackBerry models. But faults such as mediocre call quality and an unimpressive camera impede its potential to compete with the iPhone and the Android-based T-Mobile G1. In addition, its high price (compared to $199 and $180, respectively) will make competing for consumers' attention even harder for the Bold."
Hmmm, that's odd. Usually I hear the Bold has phenominal call quality.
And I was unaware iPhone had a killer camera on it? News to me.
I kindda have to agree on the camera quality. Compared to the Curve, it is not as good of a quality in terms of the screen resolution. The call quality however is pretty good. I have had no issues at all with the quality.
my calls are always clear.... strange

Review paid for by Steve Jobs, LoL
Call quality is great, and the camera is good too i mean its the same **** as on iphone...
people get the swine flu
and everyone is wearing face masks. Millions
of people have AIDS
but no one wears condoms
yep agreed the call quality is as good as any other BB ive ever used and the camera well GET A REAL 10mp THEN lol !
I just sold my iPhone 3G and I'm using my 8310 until I can get a Bold next week. I can tell all of you this .. the call quality on the iPhone isn't all that. And as for the camera .. it's crystal clear WHEN the lighting is absolutely perfect but when it's not then most pictures come out quite grainy. My 8310 takes better pictures in various light condition.
I'm also looking forward to having newsreaders that don't crash at least 3 times a day and email that doesn't crash as well.
The iPhone is for people who don't know what a smartphone is .. flash and dash .. that's it.

Since no passion is more true than another,
faith is the truth of nothing.
It would be nice if you would post a link to this review. I have used Google and cannot find it.

Phone reception is one example which can be more negatively impacted by the carrier and coverage than by the phone itself. Any phone. Since I could not find the article I cannot comment on the other aspects and topics covered.
When I first got my Curve, I thought the call quality was terrible compared to my Nokia N73.
But the advantages of the BlackBerry out weighed the short comings. So I stuck with it.
Now that I have a Bold, the call quality is considerable better than the Curve. Still not as good as my Nokia, but it is 99% there.
I find the call sound quality not only the best of any phone I have used, it is also with enough available volume that I do not need to turn it all the way up.
Not to mention the external speaker is greatly improved.

I have great call quality from my Curve, so I can only imagine how fantastic it is on the Bold as I know for a fact the type of technology RIM included in the Bold as well as the upgraded component quality. Neither of my new E or N series Nokias can compare.

I look forward to you getting your Bold and hearing what you think! I have already voted so nothing will stop me from getting a couple from my local store.
