Accessories for the BlackBerry Bold 9700

Accessories for the BlackBerry Bold 9700

When we posed the question recently asking What is the first accessory you'll buy for your BlackBerry Storm2?, it was clear that some form of protection - be it a leather case, rubber skin or invisible shield, was the most popular accessory category. When it comes to accessories for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, it is yet another new form factor from Research in Motion and thus need to be aware that some of your old stuff, but not all of it, will work.

Best Selling BlackBerry Bold 9700 Accessories

Though the Bold 9700 shares the same Bold name as its older 9000 model number sibling, the form factor is much different than its predecessor: its size is more Curve-like than Bold like, and similar to other newer BlackBerry Smartphones the Bold 9700 features a MicroUSB connection instead of the MiniUSB port found on the original Bold. The only consistent accessory component between the original Bold and the Bold 9700 is the battery - both use the same slim M-S1 battery. To see all compatible accessories for your BlackBerry Bold 9700 and stay on top of the latest cases, skins and accessories, simply visit our BlackBerry Bold 9700 Accessory page (link at the bottom of this article).

Contest: Now that the BlackBerry Bold 9700 has officially been announced, we'll do something a little bit different and celebrate the occassion by giving away some BlackBerry Bold 9700 Accessories! We already have OEM BlackBerry Bold 9700 skins in stock at ShopCrackBerry.com, so we'll give away three skins to three lucky winners. All you need to do is leave a comment to this post letting us know what's the first accessory you plan to buy for your BlackBerry Bold 9700. A car charger? A Bluetooth headset? Maybe a BlackBerry Bold 9700 charging dock? Let us know! Contest ends this Sunday, Oct.25th, at Midnight PST. *

The first accessory I would get for any BB is a screen protector.

crashdavis

You say the size is more Curve like. If it fits my leather case the first will be a car charger, if not a new case.

kepano915

I'm eligible for an upgrade with AT&T and will wait for the Bold 9700. I would like to get a screen protector, a nice protective case (just in case I dropped it). I've dropped my Curve 8310 a couple of time. Maybe later on, and SD more than 2GB I have now. So many to choose...but first a screen protector.

grreyes24

The first thing i'm getting is a huge SD card then probably some kind of case to keep it beautiful.

Invisi-Shield to keep that pretty look in tact.

Vicious_Cid

First thing I'll buy is a black gel-resin skin! If not available, then a RIM black silicone skin.

My 8310 holster can probably hold out for a short period of time, but my black skin and screen protector will be in need of a 9700 upgrade asap!

beamolite

First thing would be a charging pod.

revlis78

It would have to be a car charger that's micro-USB.

kccman

Screen protector for sure!

simps

First thing I would buy is a car charger for the 9700.

OviFan

No doubt when I will get my hands on this bad boy I plan on getting a rubber skin (they are affordable and get the job done nicely without taking away the beauty of the device) and for sure a screen protector. After the obvious accessories, I've been thinking of getting the charging dock and/or the bluetooth car speakers.

Bandi1

1st: Leather case w/Belt Clip (sideways case preferred)
2nd: Silicone Cover
3rd: Screen Protector

I can't wait for this phone to be released!!

BondOO7

First thing has to be a Screen Protector for me, next thing definitely a Car Charger.

And then... one of those nice looking pocket pouch.

mb.ball

Can't wait to get both of these!

jonholmes

First two will be 16BGB SDHC card and hard case

Zippo_dd

Screen protector and/or phone case so that I can protect its beauty.

tim1e

definitely a black silicone case!

lordcliff

I'd have to say large battery with a charging dock. I use the crap out of my curve, and I have a feeling the 9700 will be used even more, what with the more memory for useful apps an all. Can't wait.

cu19

That way I can drive around and show off my new Bold !!!!!

Madeyefergy

I'll want to protect this new addition to the family.

matthew.douglas

I'll be getting a privacy screen.

caseden

New laws in my province...so, a bluetooth headset!

userfriendly1

I gotta get a screen protector first. Then a nice case along with a side holster. Finally a charging dock.

JSB544

Charging pod most definately. Maybe a new back cover. More likely the charging pod though

oj330i

This has to be the first accessory for any new BB. Actually two of them so you can have one at home and one at work.

ChowYumPhat

Just like my current Curve, I would do the Holster and screen protector. But in retrospect, I might hold off on the skin since the I like the textured batty door, quite attractive.

nasvai

16 or 32 GB memory card, then a charging dock.

Mycopsycho

My first accessory will be a leather case.

CrackCurve56

I love Emma, my original BlackBerry Bold 9000, but Emma will have to be my secondary or third love, as my daughter is my first love. My new second love will be the BlackBerry Bold 9700. I want to give her a good head start in her infancy, so I would love a good solid case around her, as I'm sure the cell will come with a leather case, as the original Bold did. I would love a great skin to put around my new child. Thanks. :)

keyfin

The first accessory I would get is a car charger!!

WizKid3

Definitely will be a case or skin. I regret not getting one as soon as I got my 8900.

Zeds

joejag48

faibs

Whenever I get a new bb, there are two things i MUST get, Desktop Stand/Charger and Seidio case, no questions asked!

Grrrrl

i just want to have my 97OO BOLD

CANT THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE :D

TTune

About 9 μsecs after I took possession of the 9700 I'd be looking for a bed-side & desk-top charging pod.

(I take one of them with me when I travel and use it in hotel rooms as my alarm clock instead of trusting hotel alarm clocks.)

--TTune

MacAlert

I would probably get a BB charging dock.

EvilKnievel

I think I would get the charging dock. It's gonna look cool on such an amazing device.

An OEM silicone skin and a privacy screen protector. I can't wait! :-)

krees23

Dante-Ken

The first accessory I would buy would be a charging dock. I like to keep my phone looking sexy while it sits on my desk.

Wiltron#CB

Otterbox Case!

As soon as its released that is :P

kamenrida

Charging dock for sure. You rock CB!

DarwinMejia

TechieAttorney

My first purchase will almost certainly be a handful of adapters so I can use all my old Blackberry chargers on my new device (next to my bed, next to my desk at home, next to my desk at work, in my car, in the conf. room, in my travel bag, etc.)

Gnome

First accessory has to be charging dock so I can use it in bedside mode.

yesman74

High capacity battery, would need one when I'm working a 12 hr day on the road.

cool9527

I'm not necessarily looking for an accessory to be my first purchase for my BB9700, but rather an App--specifically the one from that old James Bond movie that lets me drive my car from the touchpad. But, seeing as how no one has developed that yet, I suppose I'll settle for the rubberized skin you are offering here.

epruden09

First thing I will get is the phone protector cover. Have to protect my precious gem....

jehangir

Coz im one of the first ones to rock this berry

209Mike

First accessory will definitely be a leather case. Drops are bound to happen.

NTHQ

Well since I'm on the run to win the HS-500 bluetooth headset, my first accessory that I will buy for my 9700 is a sleeve to put it in. Something smooth that I can put in my pocket. No holsters for me though. I don't like hanging my phone on my belt. Makes me look like too much of a show-off.

UN4GTBL

Is a charging dock, followed by a cover of some sort!!

mstibby

Gonna make sure I have BSE, a skin (or some form of protection) and a bigger memory card!

yababe88

Definitely a desktop dock and a bunch of MicroUSB adaptors!

bobdobbins

the power station!?

The Bold 9000 was the last BlackBerry to be compatible with the amazing BlackBerry Powerstation. I had it + the extra battery charger + the proper cradle for the Bold. So, i really like extra batteries and docks.

adamlau

Already have four Micro USB wall and two Micro USB car chargers, plenty of BSE material and will be waiting on a Seidio extended battery door before jumping on an extended battery. What does that leave me to buy? A Bluetooth hands-free speaker, is what. Thanks for listening, CB!

chocochip

I'd get a silicone case!

alexon

I probably have 10 usb chargers, 5 data cables and a couple of car adapters I won't be able to use with the new bold 9700... I guess car adapter will be number one.

Windjammer#CB

The first accessory that I would purchase is a Corvotec Vertical Case to protect it.

Definitely a rubber case.. The only annoying thing is that for some reason At&t never seems to sell the Blackberry branded plain cases.. I don't get it.. That and a charging pod thingy.

CuteBerry

Not really but it sounded good! LOL! The first accesorry I'm gonna get will be a car charger! I hate hate hate leaving the house and forgetting my harger!!! I currently have the car and home travel charger from T-Mobile which is great....Plus winning the skins would be fantastic and go great with the new earpiece that I'm hoping to win! Come on CB pretty pretty please!!!!!

kasperapd

yourdrugrep

I will be first in line for Bold 2 with ATT and have already called my rep friend at the store. After doing this last year with the Bold, and after a few dropsies, I will be purchasing a silicone protective sleeve/case for my Bold 2. Which is what I should have done with the Bold.

vinnnay

I would buy a skin and a screen shield.

lionheartck

Paul84k#CB

I would get the leather case and screen protector.

mgunay

Probably a screen protector

qutg4

Although it has been said before, time and time again. The number 1 item is going to be some kind of protection. We have all heard and some have seen the damage that can happen to your unprotected "love one". So it is with a heavy heart that I must say that my first accessory will have to be a Seidio Innocase Snap for BlackBerry Curve 9700, when it comes available. I currently have a Seidio Snap case for my Curve 8320 and must say that it is a buy worth repeating.

bbquincar

i plan to buy the bb bluetooth ear piece

I will get a Ghost Armor protector on the screen. I don't really bang my phones. If it doesn't come with a pouch, then I'll get a pouch next.

Miz.Michele

A charging dock s #1 on my list because I want to look at my phone while it's on my desk..#2 is a case...only because CB is giving away the skins...otherwise it would be case first,charging dock second.
