The BlackBerry Bold 9930 has a luxurious feel in the hand.
Measuring 4.53 inches long by 2.6 inches wide by 0.41 inch thick, the Bold 9930 could maybe lay claim to being a sports car as well. Its slender profile makes it the thinnest BlackBerry yet, which really does add to the phone’s sleek and elegant aesthetic. More importantly, RIM has wisely decided to widen the Bold 9930 back to the original BlackBerry 9000 size, which allows for a larger display and a roomier keyboard (which we’ll discuss later).
The Bold’s 2.8-inch display is another triumph. RIM pumped up the resolution to 640×480 pixels, which might not seem like much, but cram that into a small display like this and the result is really smooth and sharp images with nary a pixel in sight. OS 7’s new Liquid Graphics technology that promises improved graphics and animations also comes into play here, and we were impressed by the results. The Bold 9930’s display certainly looks better than any of its predecessors.
