The Bottom Line The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a solid messaging smartphone and ships with the latest BlackBerry OS, but it's not necessarily worth the upgrade. The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700 brings T-Mobile its first 3G BlackBerry and improves on its predecessor with a sleeker design and more power. We only wish it had a better browser to complete the package. BlackBerry enthusiasts will love the BlackBerry Bold 9900, but its high price tag will be a deterrent to many. The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 makes a great entry-level offering for those already in the BlackBerry camp. The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the best QWERTY BlackBerry to date, but should be priced lower.
