We’ve got an exclusive first look at the unannounced, and unreleased, Blackberry Bold 9780, courtesy of our friends at TechnoBuffalo.  This is the successor to the Bold 2 (9700) which looks very similar to its predecessor, representing an evolutionary design upgrade,  however, the real treats are hidden under the hood.  Leaked specs that were released in August turned out to be dead on, as this business-centric device features:

  • 624 MHz Processor
  • OS 6
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 2.44″ HVGA+ display (480 X 360)
  • 5 MPX camera w/ auto-focus and LED flash
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Webkit browser
  • AT&T 3G Bands

More pics after the break…

Overall, the Bold 9780′s performance was outstanding, call quality was superb, and the keyboard is a texter’s dream.  The Blackberry’s new OS 6 feels natural on a non-touchscreen, but the browser is still lacking.
