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 BlackBerry Bold launches in Jordan via Orange

Orange Jordan have announced that they’re launching the BlackBerry Bold, arguably RIM’s flagship device. While we aren’t seeing any details on pricing, the BlackBerry Bold comes at a recommended retail price of $1,199.

If you visit the Orange Jordan site, there isn’t a link for BlackBerry or any information on what devices they sell. There is, on the other hand, a ton of information about the iPhone. It will be interesting to see how many Jordinians buy the BlackBerry Bold, even though it doesn’t seem to have much in the way of marketing.

BlackBerry OS leaks: Storm OS 4.7.0.164, Bold and 8900 OS 5.0.0.130

This week is off to a great start with some OS leaks for your BlackBerry. The move coveted of the 2 leaks is for Bold and Curve 8900 users: OS 5.0.0.13. Don’t get too excited though, like all the OS 5.0 leaks we’ve seen, the build does not come with the latest BlackBerry Messenger, and it will make App World buggy.

BlackBerry Storm 9500 users will appreciate the OS 4.7.0.164 update as it helps make the Storm experience a little smoother. While the Storm started off on a bad foot, RIM has done a great job of releasing OS updates to improve the experience. So if you’re frustrated with your device, at the very least you should be getting official updates the moment they’re available.

Personally, I don’t recommend downloading these OS leaks, but I’m posting for the die-hards who absolutely must try them out. Make sure to back everything up!

Download OS 4.7.0.164 for the BlackBerry Storm 9500.
Download OS 5.0.0.130 for the BlackBerry Bold
Download OS 5.0.0.130 for the BlackBerry Curve 8900
