We check out RIM's BlackBerry Bold 9780 that's running the company's latest mobile OS and boasts some hardware improvements as well.
PROS
New OS is a lot better to use than the one on the previous Bold, better performance and camera.
CONS
Not many changes in terms of hardware and virtually identical styling to the old model, no FM radio, no touch-screen.
VERDICT
Evolution is the name of the game with the BlackBerry Bold 9780 sporting better hardware and RIM's latest OS BlackBerry OS 6. This makes the smartphone more competitive against its iOS and Android-powered rivals, but not any better.
