BlackBerryCool Roundup for the Week of May 17th

Comments

Yet another week in BlackBerry and this week belongs to the Sprint BlackBerry Bold 9650. The Bold 9650 is essentially the Tour 2, but with a Bold brand so as to not offend current Tour users. BlackBerryCool has the device in-house and it’s a really awesome piece of hardware. The Tour has an excellent form factor which is a little bigger and heavier than say the 9700, making it ideal for someone with hands that are a little bigger. Expect a full review shortly. In terms of apps, Matt is in search of the best games for BlackBerry and has been reviewing several a week. This week he reviewed Age of Empires and Boeing Bomber! for BlackBerry. Have you played any games you really liked or disliked? Let us know.
