BlackBerry makes Bold move with HSDPA

RIM has unwrapped its latest gadget for those with overactive thumbs: the BlackBerry Bold. The Bold thankfully sports the HSDPA-connectivity we’ve all been longing for, as well some extra tasty goodies: GPS and maps, wi-fi, 1GB storage as well as the usual full QWERTY keyboard.

Despite RIM’s plans to pitch the device to “business professionals and power users”, the Bold looks like it’s another play by the folk at RIM to charm the consumer audience. As well as boasting similar whizzbang features to those that made the Nokia N95 a crowd pleaser, it’s also got some good looking styling and iTunes syncing, via BlackBerry Media Sync.

Want to get your hands on one? It’ll be out this summer, according to RIM. No word on who’s the lucky UK operators yet.

I really hope so because I love the tarriffs, but it seems a bit of a stretch – they don't offer any Blackberry services or devices currently. I'd expect to see some Windows Mobile handsets before Blackberries as a quicker line into business customers for mobile email etc.
