Salomondrin does a great job of leaking videos of unreleased devices and his most recent is a comparison of the Bold 9700 and the Bold 9000. The BlackBerry Bold 9700 aka the Onyx, will have some decent specs with a 3.2MP camera, 256 MB of memory and a tighter form factor.

Because these videos are constantly being pulled, we’ve decided to bring it to you in picture form.

The Bold 9700 is a little smaller and it’s a tighter form factor than the 9000.

The cover slips out nicely and the SIM card is placed above the battery. You don’t need to remove the battery to get at the SIM.

The trackpad responsiveness is really impressive. OS 5, combined with the lack of moving parts on the trackpad makes for a smooth experience navigating menus.

BBM is still 4.7 and while we’re pretty sure BBM 5.0 will come with the release of the device, RIM is likely keeping it off pre-release devices.

The device comes preloaded with a wide variety of apps including games such as Tetris and Pacman. The AT&T App Center comes preloaded on the device which is a tragedy. Why is AT&T still putting this ridiculous store on the device when we have App World?

And of course the video, in case it stays up:

    Thanks for the screengrabs. I still don’t understand what legal basis RIM has for forcing the video takedowns.
