The great thing about this deal is not so much the headline line rental figure. Which is a reasonable one considering that this handset is available for free. What's so good is the underlying freebies. Free Internet use, landline calls and email, if paid for at their normal rate, would be awfully costly. This makes for a great value deal for a handset that is full featured and has recevied universal praise.

Look and feel
It's large, but it still manages to maintain a great look and feel. The half VGA screen simply sparkles on board the matt black body.
Ease of use
RIM has improved the user interface by having bolder menu icons and the manufacturer has maintained the excellent BlackBerry trackball.
The Bold is the first BlackBerry device to feature HSDPA internet speeds and also boasts A-GPS, Wi-Fi and a full QWERTY keyboard.
Surfing the net on either HSDPA or Wi-Fi proves to be a nippy experience and RIM has upheld its tradition of producing excellent messaging devices.
An average talktime of 300 minutes and 310 hours' standby.
