The Verizon BlackBerry Bold Touch Demo Could Be Better


The app download is shown at 0:54

The Verizon Bold Touch has been showing up around the Internet but what’s annoying about the demo is that even while the Verizon rep is touting the Bold Touch’s “super fast speeds” and “lightning quick processor”, the video still shows an hourglass while downloading a simple flashlight app. The app downloading process on the PlayBook is awesome and we’re really looking forward to QNX on a smartphone, and it just seems a little lame that we’re still dealing with these setbacks. The app shown in the demo is The Jared Company’s One Touch Flashlight which is only 22Kb in size. Now, we’re not going to rag on the device like it’s going to be bad or anything as the device isn’t even out yet. But Verizon seems to have dropped the ball on this demo as OS 7 doesn’t look to be that further ahead of BlackBerry 6. Even the pinch to zoom and vertical scrolling didn’t seem that smooth.

Do you think Verizon did a good job selling you on OS 7?

BlackBerry Bold 9650 OS with Change Log


We haven’t written about a BlackBerry OS update in some time and the news seems a little lame considering what is on the horizon (OS 7 and QNX OS). Nonetheless, it’s cool that carriers such as Verizon have started, and will hopefully continue, to provide changelogs along with the OS update. One of the more interesting updates includes support for BlackBerry Balance. This allows you to securely separate your business and personal data, applications and information.
