The Blackberry Bold 9000 was introduced by RIM as the next model of Blackberry smartphone running the new OS 5.0 software. This newer model included improvements in processing power, graphics (twice the resolution of previous models), GPS navigation, and a 2.0 MP camera with flash. It also featured Bluetooth, WIFI, and 3G capability, with email and document editing software. The phone was shipped in both black and white.

The Bold 9000 was replaced in December of 2009 by the Blackberry Bold 9700, which featured an improved camera, higher color resolution, an optical trackpad, and OS 6.0 software. Unfortunately, the Blackberry Bold 9000 does not support the upgraded software.
