BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a younger brother of BlackBerry 9700 who’s just a little more fashionable than 9700 and we know 9700 very well. Just got hold of a 9780 and it’s as cool as a 9700, seriously. What makes it more cool is the OS 6 and its doing a great job with the new OS despite the fact it does not have a touch screen like Torch 9800.

There are only two main differences between BlackBerry 9780 Bold and 9700 Bold.


  1. BlackBerry 9780 has a 5 megapixel camera as compared to 3.2 megapixel cameara on Bold 9700.
  2. And the bigger difference is, 9780 has OS 6.

In cas you are planning to upgrade your 9700, then 9780 is definitely not the choice. If you are planning to get a new 9700, better get a 9780. For existing 9700 users, BlackBerry 9800 torch is a much better choice. And in case you are highly tempted to use OS 6 on your BlackBerry and own an 9700, better flash your OS to version 6 and enjoy having a 9780, well almost ­čÖé┬á . You can read this post on how to upgrade to OS 6 on BlackBerry 9700.

Here are a few more shots of the 9780 which has the same big 1500 Mah battery as Bold 9700.
