The Sprint BlackBerry Bold 9650... it's finally here! CrackBerry's David Boyd is currently putting the new CDMA flagship full physical qwerty BlackBerry through its paces and is working on in-depth device review, so while we're waiting on that I figured it wouldn't hurt to get up David's Bold 9650 video unboxing and overview.
In addition to now having WiFi, the optical trackpad and 3D graphics support as compared to the Tour 9630, the Bold 9650 also doubles its internal memory up to 512MB, which as you can tell from the video is something David is very excited about. Out of box with no tweaking to free up memory, you're still left with over 300MB of available space for instaling apps and running the device - a number that's huge to BlackBerry users. A device like the Bold 9000 or Storm 9530 out of box would have closer to 30MB of free application space, so we're literally talking a 10x increase in free memory (though a lot of us hardcore users would prefer to see gigs of free app space).
Check out the video above to get a good look at Sprint's BlackBerry Bold 9650 as it comes out of the box (and if you want to win my 9700 at as David points out, enter here). And if you have any specific questions you'd like answered or things you'd like to see in David's comprehensive review, be sure to drop them in the comments and we'll do our best to address them.
