In Short

The BlackBerry Bold 9000 was the first BlackBerry to have Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G in one device. Though clearly the spiritual successor to the BlackBerry 8800, the leather battery door introduced a great feeling of luxury, and the larger keyboard afforded easier typing. The 9000 was followed up by the Bold 9700 and 9900 series. The BlackBerry Bold 9000 was released in August 2008 with a new version of the operating system, 4.5.
