BlackBerry Bold 9700
2009 also saw the advent of the first European-designed BlackBerry, the Bold 9700. According to RIM's co-CEO Mike Lazaridis, the one common request of users of the original Bold was to make it a little smaller. "It was a little too bold for some," the co-CEO joked.
The Bold 9700 was smaller and lighter than the original and featured a higher resolution display and a camera with more pixels — up from two to 3.2 megapixels.
