In the recent news from renowned news sources in UK, it is the topic of discussion that the Blackberry Bold is going to become an iPhone killer. According to the blackberry manufacturing canadian company RIM – The Blackberry Bold is a kind of phone which is in the reach of it’s high end users like travelling salesman, business personnels and the ordinary users. It is being treated as an point of attraction from it’s broad range of users and audiance.

As Apple iPhone is having it’s best features like Geo tagging, GPS, 3G mobile network and it’s touch screen feature which allows it’s users to get the browsing experience as they feel while browsing on the internet. It has 2 MP camera which is not so high resolution one but produces the good quality pictures and video clips. On the other hand if we talk about the Blackberry bold it is being designed with this almost entirely in mind: loading music for instance, has been made really easy – it will pull songs straight from your existing iTunes library; surfing the web is more satisfying than on other BlackBerrys, because the Bold uses the 3G mobile phone network as well as Wi-Fi to get online; and the interface has been given a makeover.

We can compare the basic features of Blackberry Bold and 3G Apple iPhone to justify that where iPhone lacks with the Bold so that it is being in the rumors that bold is going to be an iPhone Killer.

Camera and GPS
iPhone 3g:The two-megapixel camera is basic but produces images of acceptable quality. Using the built-in GPS and Google Maps to get around is easy, but the current system is not quite fast enough to support real-time turn-by-turn directions. The satnav software can “tag” a photo with the geographical coordinates where it was taken.

BlackBerry Bold: The Bold has the same two-megapixel camera as the iPhone and can also “geotag” your photographs. The GPS function is very easy to use, and you can install additional software to turn the Bold into a useful sat-nav device, capable of providing turn-by-turn directions.

Email
iPhone 3g: The iPhone can collect emails as soon as they hit your computer inbox. Setting up a connection to my work email account took 90 seconds.

BlackBerry Bold: The full-sized keyboard means that you can type long emails comfortably, and you can open and edit documents with applications such as “Word to Go”.

Overall view
iPhone 3g: If the iPhone had the ability to edit documents on the go, it would be the perfect business device.

BlackBerry Bold:The BlackBerry Bold, quite simply, does more than the iPhone. It looks better than any of its predecessors, too, but email and professional uses are always going to be the priorities for this device.
