I’ve never had a BlackBerry, never really got into it, for me the BB is business oriented phone and not much fun.. I could be wrong though as I’ve never owned one.. The new BlackBerry Bold 9650 is the latest and greatest smartphone and it will be available June 3rd online, and on store on June 10th. It’s sporting a 2.45” display with a 480×360 resolution, dimensions are 4.40″ x 2.44″ x .55″ and 4.8 oz, so it’s not but it’s not little either.. Cost will be $149.99 after $100 mail-in rebate and new 2yr agreement of course.
