Bold 9700 now available on Vodafone

BlackBerry Bold 9700

Vodafone customers can now get their hands on the next-generation BlackBerry Bold, the 9700, following a similar announcement by rival T-Mobile last week.

The Bold 9700 is a slim-downed successor to the original handset, boasting all the features users liked and enhancing previous quirks that BlackBerry fans weren't so enamoured with.

It certainly impressed our reviewer too. Click here for IT PRO's first look review of the BlackBerry Bold 9700.

Below is sister title Know Your Mobile's hands-on preview of the new device.
