[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] After the influx of BlackBerry Torch 9800 commercials that popped up upon the device's release, it's great to see some commercials for other devices as well. The latest I caught as I was going to sleep last night and it kind of threw me for a loop when the white Bold 9780 popped up and I didn't see a Torch. I guess it makes sense to see a Bold 9780...

When the BlackBerry Bold 9780 was first announced I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. I had made the full-time jump from my CDMA ways to GSM with the Bold 9700 and it had quickly become my favorite device. I explained why I wasn't the biggest fan of the Bold 9650 and instead chose the 9700, and while along the same lines, the same goes for my choosing of the Bold 9780 over the Bold 9700....
