    Personally I’d like to see the battery door improved which it looks like it has been. The camera can always be improved and it looks like they’ve done that too! All around I think the 9700 is an awesome device and definitely an upgrade for the Bold.

  2. 2 Erick Diaz

    I would like to win this case!!! :-) Thank you BlackBerry Cool!!!

  3. 3 Jeremy

    Improvements on the Blackberry Bold.
    1. Run apps from the memory card!!!!
    2. Browser. I guess I have to wait until next summer.
    3. More base memory. 128Mb > 512Mb. The other units are coming with 256Mb and the Bold is supposed to be the flagship qwerty device, therefore it should have more than the other devices.
    4. The Trackpad looks neat, but I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet…
    5. The Accelerometer would be a nice feature…

  4. 4 Pink2

    I would like to see:

    1. The application memory usage improved
    2. No trackball
    3. Being able to store unused themes and apps on media card for easier access
    4. Not so many sample files that you can’t delete without 3rd party apps

    I absolutely love my Bold and would love to win this clip!!!

  5. 5 AYKing

    Features I’d like to improve on my Bold:
    1. More RAM please! Really. I hate seeing “Application Memory Free Space: 1.3MB).
    2. Better camera (those 3.2MP Auto-Focus looks good for posting pics on twitter!)
    3. Trackpad (so no more taking apart the entire thing to clean the trackball every so often)

  6. 6 James L

    Speaker phone needs to be louder
    and to get off AT&T

  13. 13 EA

  14. 14 Tim

    I would like to see:

    - improved battery life.
    - improved browser support — for non blackberry browsers.
    - better integration with gmail for BIS users.

  15. 15 redzapper

    Better memory management and better battery life.

  16. 16 David N

    Besides the browser, I think the battery life should be improved!

  17. 17 Brant M

    It’s time the Bold gets a camera update with Auto focus and at a bare minimum 3.2 mp.

  18. 18 BigSluggo

    Battery life is always a killer with 3G. Would be nice to see that in conjunction with the browsing experience. That and maybe more RIM-sponsored theme offerings as well.

    would love to win a case for my BOLD

    I would like to see a better OS system that improves memory and battery life.

    Better Battery life

    alternative to the track ball that get stuck after 6mos of use

    Not sure if this is a Bold issue or an AT&T issues but eliminate drop call when I get text or emails or no appearent reason at all

    I think all these could be improved on, but I would not have any other phone then my Blackberry Bold!!!

    Thanks Blackberry cool for this awesome opportunity to win this case for my bold!!!!

    I’d like to see a better camera of course. But more than anything I’d like the Memory manager to be improved, let’s see something that reallocates the free memory right away rather than have to wait for a reset. :) anyone using Viigo will know what I mean. Lol!

    -More RAM
    -Higher resolution camera
    -More internal memory for apps
    -Longer Batter Life
    -Accelerometer
    -Quicker connection to GPS satellites

    It’s a great smartphone, but the above would be wonderful changes.

  27. 27 Neel

    7.2mbps or faster data connection please, my network has supported this speed for over a year now and will upgrade soon!
    Also a browser that can deal with these speeds would be good.

  28. 28 @ngel

    Battery life and a slimmer form!

  29. 29 ahmerz

    I like to see a better camera in Bold2

  30. 30 a.wilson

    I would like to see apps run from the memory card, more base memory, no trackball, ability to store unused apps on media card, better camera, better battery life and quicker boot time.

  31. 31 Jeremy McCraw

    I love my mold, but there are things that make me crazy

    1. More RAM, More RAM, More RAM. If my oldschool Palm Tungsten T could run and store apps on memory cards, than my phone should be able to without a hitch
    2. Wi-Fi Voip support
    3. Better power management
    4. A Safari-like brower that supports Flash or a Flash workaround
    5. Better Camera phone, if you’re not going to push up the Megapixels, at least punch up the colors, speed up the AF (I mean its next to useless) and get some better contrast.

  32. 32 Brian

    Better camera, better battery life, more app memory

  33. 33 Moishe Kreisman

    Louder speakerphone
    OS/
    Capability of subtasks in Task Mgr
    Better file manager/viewer

  34. 34 murphythadog
