BlackBerry Bold 9780 v Apple iPhone 4: What Would You Choose?

BlackBerry Bold 9780 v Apple iPhone 4: What Would You Choose?

For those of you out there who are still in a predicament whether to opt for the business type BlackBerry Bold 9780 or the everyday iPhone 4 handset, may need a little refreshing on each of their fantastic features. Jamie Pert at PR News has done just this. Along with main specifications he has listed weight and dimensions.

At OSM we reported just a week ago on the Bold 9780 being the first in its range to incorporate the BlackBerry 6 OS. In weight and appearance specifications are indicating that it is slightly smaller than that of its competitor the iPhone 4, but it still presents itself as being thicker and wider possibly due to the QWERTY keyboard. PR News has reported on the bold featuring a 624 MHz processor, 528 MB RAM, 2GB storage although it can be replaced with a card of up to 32GB. Compare this to the iPhone 4, this includes 1 GHz A4 processor, slightly less RAM of 512, and either 16 or 32GB of storage. When looking at screen sizes, the Bold offers a 2.44-inch display whilst the Apple device shows a 3.5-inch touch screen retina display.

Other impressive features that make it a close contest include both devices having a 5MP rear-facing camera, auto-focus and LED flash, although the iPhone 4 offers 720p video recording, battery life of the Bold 9780 offers 408 hours of standby time and 6 hours of talk time compared to that of 300 hours of standby time and 7 hours of talk time with the iPhone. At the end of the day, both handsets offer similar features and it really does come down to personal preference, but if I had to choose I would no doubt opt for the iPhone 4 giving a bigger touch screen display, faster speed and more talk time.

    Colleague has an iPhone. Incerdible apps. Says if he was a teenager he would love it, but as an adult he is wishes he had a more reliable phone and he misses his Blackberry Messenger. He plans to buy the new Bold. I will likely follow suit. I want function not fashion.

    Yes, the BB 9780 and the iPhone 4 are both incredibly sophisticated and powerful smartphones that are ideal companions for people who want complete control of their digital lives while on the go. I am also hesitating which one i should buy. On your analysis, i think i probably buy the BB 9780 as i hate the touch screen keyboards. At the same time, i also can download a Aneesoft balckberry video converter!

    Iphone is a great product. But it is too expensive. Cost will win out in the end. Blackberry 9780 is pitched at the correct price point. We should also remember that at the end of the day, you make calls on them.
