We recently purchased a white Blackberry Bold 9700 smartphone. The price of Blackberry 9700 in the Philippines is between PhP 21-22K (around US $500-523). We already got a black Blackberry Bold 9700 (Onyx) and it was priced between PhP 25-27K back then. Despite the fact that newer BB phones have been released (like the Blackberry Torch 9800), we have developed a certain level of attachment to the Bold 2.
We’re very happy with our purchase. The Blackberry 970 is a truly functional smarpthone especially for business people. It has its limitations and problems but we’re ok with them. We’ll discuss some of the problems we’ve identified in the near future but for now, we’d like to share some photos.
