BlackBerry 9700 reviewed and loved

BlackBerry Tour vs BlackBerry 9700

BlackBerry Tour vs BlackBerry 9700

The BGR boys just slapped up a review of RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry 9700. I must say that I’m surprised to see how small it is compared to the Tour. It really looks small but also solid. Here’s what they say about the hardware:

The 9700 makes the Tour look like a bloated 8-month pregnant single mother. Shave about 24% of the surface area off the Tour, bevel the edges, round the corners, and you’ll have something close to the BlackBerry 9700. It’s the most gorgeous BlackBerry on the planet. And no, that’s not up for debate or discussion. Early units had the straight RIM color theme on the keyboards (white letters with red accents/symbols) but the unit we have which is most likely what AT&T will receive is all white. This looks great meshed with the titanium chrome finish on the bezel and the high gloss black finish on the front of the device.

RIM has another winner I guess. Can’t wait to see a review of the Storm2.
