BlackBerry Bold 9700 Debuts in the Philippines

Research in Motion (RIM) recently launched BlackBerry Bold 9700, the latest smartphone made available in the Philippines. Just like the Blackberry Curve 8520 that I was able to use to cover the recent Philippine Fashion Week, is packed with high-end communications and multimedia features but with a more sleek and compact design.

“Building on the success of the original BlackBerry Bold, we are now pleased to bring the BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone to the Philippines,” said Gregory Wade, Managing Director for Southeast Asia, Research In Motion. “We believe that customers will be extremely impressed with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone’s exciting new features, exceptional performance and refined design.”
