Although RIM has been in the news for privacy issues, the BlackBerry phones have done quite well with all sorts of people. Today, RIM unveiled the Bold 9780 in India. It comes with the BlackBerry 6 OS, being the first Bold smartphone to have the new OS.

Apart from their business features, the phone supports 3G networks, has Wi-Fi and GPS for location-based applications and geo-tagging. It boasts of some photography with a 5 MP camera and features like continuous auto focus, scene modes, image stabilization, flash and video recording. It’s got 512 MB memory on board that can be expanded up to 32 GB through the memory card slot. The BlackBerry 6 OS has been given a fresh makeover but retains many of its old features. It has a new browser which renders web pages quickly, has multiple tabs, and zoom in.

A bold venture?

The phone has its trademark BlackBerry Messenger (pretty much the reason why most people buy BlackBerry phones) and access to Facebook, Twitter and MySpace as well. It also has features that manage RSS feeds easily. There’s the Blackberry App World for a whole lot of apps for you to experience. Like all of their other phones, the Bold 9780 comes at a heavy price tag of Rs. 27,900. I know you’re waiting for the review now!
