Our Review - Store-Orange Staff - 19 April 2013 - 1:49pm



The BlackBerry 9780 feels incredibly solid, and looks both classy and expensive. If you loved the slick and sophisticated keyboard on the 9700, fear not; much of what made the Bold so great has been retained in the 9780, including its lighting-quick navigation via optical trackpad, and its unrivalled efficiency when it comes to writing long emails and instant messaging conversations. The 9780 also packs more power under the hood, with an increased 512MB RAM and great battery life to ensure that you can multitask all day long.
As well as outstanding performance for the business user, the Bold 9780 also provides a wealth of features that cater for all your social networking needs. The incredibly popular BlackBerry Messenger feature provides you with a quick and convenient way to message your friends and colleagues, cutting down on the time it takes for you to organise your social life, and giving you more time to enjoy it! Be sure to make use of the 5MP camera to catch all the action too! The 9780 features great Facebook, Twitter and YouTube apps available, giving you instant notifications of social updates so you're always in the loop.
The Bold 9780 is optimised to make full use of the sparkling new BlackBerry operating system. Operating BlackBerry 6, the 9780 gives a much more polished and dynamic user experience. You'll love its multi-tasking and intuitive new interface - both for its speed and efficiency and its gorgeous good looks. It's also now even easier to use - with a quick first-time setup and detailed help sections availble on your phone - giving you answers to all your queries in seconds. Although BlackBerrys are known to excel when it comes to emailing, Blackberry 6 makes things like web browsing and social networking an absolute breeze. BlackBerry App World offers a huge range of free and paid apps - placing thousands of games and productivity tools at your fingertips, wherever you are.
The Orange BlackBerry 9780 Bold offers a wealth of features that make it one of the most rounded handsets in the BlackBerry range. The full QWERTY keyboard is incredible to use - and makes emailing and instant messaging absolutely effortless. Without doubt a phone for workaholics who love being able to take their office communication experience on the move, and social networking addicts who can't be without Facebook and Twitter - the Bold will also impress for its all round performance and sophisticated appearance.
