But is it an iPhone killer?

RIM's latest addition to the BlackBerry line-up - the Bold - is due to arrive in the UK next month, squaring up to Apple's iPhone which has been touting its business credentials.

The BlackBerry maker was showing the Bold off earlier this year at its Wireless Enterprise Symposium in Orlando, Florida. But business customers on these shores will shortly be able to get their hands on the 3.5G device, via T-Mobile UK, which is pledging 'real world' maximum speeds of 4.5Mbps.

The Bold has a full Qwerty keyboard, trackball for navigation and a screen resolution of 480 x 320 pixels. Like the iPhone it includes GPS and wi-fi.

Users can also download Word, Excel or PowerPoint email attachments and edit them directly on the handset.

The phone comes with a 2-megapixel camera and has removable, faux leather back-plates available in different colours.

The Bold will be available in T-Mobile UK shops and online from September 2008.
