Reception

The Blackberry Bold has generally been positively reviewed by critics. Bonnie Cha of CNET rated the phone as "Excellent" and praised the phone's screen and multimedia capabilities. However, she did not like the bulkiness of the bold and she notes that it has poor web browsing navigation. However, she mentioned that the bulkiness would be greatly improved by Blackberry OS 6.0.

Technical issues

  • On October 10, 2008, UK provider Orange suspended sales of the BlackBerry Bold due to undisclosed software issues.
  • March 2, 2008, RIM says they had or still have an overheating problem with the Bold saying in some cases it became too hot to handle. This problem seems to have affected regions in and around Japan only. "BlackBerry Bold devices in other countries are unaffected by this matter."
  • The Bold, the second 3G BlackBerry (first supporting US frequency bands), launched in the U.S. in November 2008, after several snags delayed its release. The Bold went through several revisions before its official launch to ensure it operated properly on AT&T's 3G network and to hammer out software issues.
  • Unlike many competing smartphones, hardware issues prevent any kind of audio/music composition or editing applications from running successfully on the Bold.
