    I saw this a bit ago. Sucks for him. Until the parts are shipped.

    Lame article. Won't buy the Bold cause the dude dropped his?
    Battery life? RIM isn't pushing At&t like Apple did to release a product that lasts 10 minutes on a charge.
    Has this thread's author seen the pictures of unexplained cracks in iPhone 3g's, or taken the time to puruse the blogs indicating they all have bad chips causing them to drop calls?
    No, when Bold is released, it will be ready for release. I'll get an extended battery like I'm already using with my Curve. And as to the quality of construction, the fluff piece cited is a joke.

    Thunder will provide some awesome consumer features we've all been waiting for. RIM rules

    that's not a good enough reason to make me not want to buy it. Always have to be more careful with expensive good looking phones.

    And the battery???? even boy genius said in his review that with the new build hes getting better battery life than a curve.

    It's a phone, a piece of electronics, not a tank. Of course you are not suppose to drop it. I carry my curve in an OtterBox just for when I do drop it. The OtterBox is ugly but it protects my 8310. When I get the Bold I'm hoping OtterBox has the case for it.
    Where is my Bold AT&T??

    Production Bold units battery life is currently 5 hours talk time. Thats exactly where the iPhone is at. I have the iPhone and miss my former BB battery life span on the 8310.

    And no I know people drop phones but a 2 foot drop rendered a huge crack.... That is not typical BB quality IMO. Yes the iPhone rolled out with a HUUUUUUUUUGE number of shortcomings. But Apple has also not been in the game as longas RIM has.

    Well.. The bold never really did it for me. Personally I'm waiting to see how the thunder does.. To see if it is worth upgrading or not. In either case, I know that it won't be this year that I will take it up a knotch. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
