iPhone 3GS vs BB Bold 9700

iPhone 3GS

This new baby is undoubtedly people's favourite amongst all the other smartphones i.e. Blackberry and HTC. Standing at a height of 4.5 inches, 2.4 inches in width and weighing only 135 grams, it comes in black and white, with a given choice of 16GB and 32 GB phone capacity.

Equipped with an upgraded auto-focus 3 MP camera with video recording functions, the iPhone 3GS is a full touch screen smartphone.

Currently priced at MYR 2450 for the device itself, I couldn't afford it with my very little savings each month. All I could do is to envy and ooohs and ahhhs at my friends' iPhones. Sigh.

Plus, I already have the iPod Touch, which is very much similar to the iPhone, minus the phone call and text functions.

This little baby also costs a bomb. MYR 2k for the device okay! Want me to die meh.

Just as I was about to give up on getting a new phone, get a Lumix LX3 semipro camera instead and make do with my old SE K750i phone, a friend of mine offered to sell his 3-day old Blackberry (hereinafter "BB") Bold 9700 for just MYR 800. Read here.

It was a damn good offer so what the heck, right? I snapped it up despite not loving the miniature QWERTY keyboard and the missing touch screen feature.

The grand, business-like toy stands at 4.29 inches with a width of 2.36 inches and weighs just 122 grams. Built with the 3G technology and really cool trackpad navigation, this BB model comes with a 3.2 MP built-in camera with video recording function.

Nyahaha iPhone 3GS, you lose! :P

Note than it's smaller and lighter than the iPhone 3GS <--- Just to coax myself :D

Oh yah. BB's battery has a longer lifespan as compared to the iPhone, too. See. BB's not that bad after all! :)

But honestly, after using it for close to a month, I'm beginning to like it!! Honest remark ok! :P

iPhone: Touch screen. Clearer image. Unique OS, runs like a computer with freeform navigation.

BB: Keypad phone.

Biased review.

Support is one thing. Biased review is another. Don't forget application compatibility too.
