Moreover, the phone is very affordable since the BlackBerry Bold 9700 price in Pakistan is far less than the overpriced Apple’s cellular devices.

Therefore, if you want to enjoy the features of a Smartphone, go to a nearby shop showing off an eye-catching handset and pay little for this luxury, then you should definitely have a relishing experience with the new BlackBerry Bold 9700.

A Sleek Appearance:

The handset is sleek with a glossy body which makes the phone look expensive and premium. It looks sophisticated and professional in white and black—the two color options for potential buyers.

Smart Dimensions and Light Weight:

The phone is 4.29 inches long, 2.36 inches wide and only 0.55 inches thick. Therefore, it is a handy handset with the perfect measurements which make it portable and easy-to-carry. In addition, it weighs only 122 grams and, therefore, feels appropriately light.

Sharpness of Display:

The display screen covers 2.44 inches of the phone when measured diagonally. The display further lights up the phone with its 65 K colors brightening up a TFT screen. At the same time, the pixel density of 246 PPI contributes greatly towards the overall sharpness. Therefore, you have a phone with a gorgeous appearance and a superb display.

The Perfect Phone for Messaging:

The phone’s QWERTY keypad is perfect for typing quick and error-free messages. In addition, there is also a track-pad which is desirably sensitive and responsive. It makes your navigation and overall browsing experience quite worthwhile.

There are a large number of users, particularly the older generation, who do not feel comfortable with touch screens when it comes to typing. There are always errors and a great deal of practice is required to get used to virtual keyboards. Therefore, this phone is perfect for messaging. Every individual would feel comfortable with it.

Updated OS:

The phone has an updated version of the OS as compared to its predecessor. It is the BlackBerry operating system version 5.0. This means that the performance of all the functions of the phone has been improved. For instance, messaging, the calendar app and browsing have all been enhanced. This change will be more noticeable by users who had been using the predecessor model in the past.

A Free App Store to Enjoy:

To own this little beauty, the affordable BlackBerry Bold 9700 price is all you have to pay. All extra apps you download from the BlackBerry app store are absolutely free of cost. There is a plethora of free software programs including games, chatting apps, music apps as well as utilities. You can also download paid apps for a more premium experience.

When you download an app, it is automatically stored in the phone’s internal memory.

A Simple Way to Capture Memories:

Whenever you want to capture a moment or scene, the phone’s 3.15MP camera is readily available to you. This resolution results in fairly clear pictures with 2048 by 1536 pixels. In addition, an LED flash is also available to let you take bright pictures, especially in dark environments and during indoor events. Moreover, the autofocus feature further makes it easier for you to capture your subject perfectly with the best zoom adjusted automatically by the camera.

Enough Storage Capacity:

If 256 MB of internal storage is not enough for all your downloaded apps and photo albums, you can add more space through the available memory card slot. The phone already comes with a 2 GB memory card. You can add further 16 GB if you need to.

Bottom Line:

Overall, the phone is perfect for entertainment as well as business. It is attractive, full of wonderful features and, most importantly, affordable. Therefore, you will make a good choice if you decide to purchase it.
