If you're a BlackBerry fanatic, the Blackberry Bold must be very familiar to you. Yes, the Bold’s screen is dazzling enough to warrant its own section dedicated simply to praising it.

I managed to put all my DVD and blu-ray movie collections to the SD card of the phone and take the movies along when traveling.
