Difference Between Nokia N8 and Blackberry Bold 9700

Nokia N8 vs Blackberry Bold 9700

The Nokia N8 and Blackberry Bold 9700 are two phones that mean business in more ways than one. These phones are excellent but not necessarily in the same way. To start off, the Bold 9700 is equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard for faster typing of text and email messages. On the other hand, the N8 doesn’t have much in terms of buttons. What it does have is a touch screen interface that gives it flexibility and a much larger screen that the lack of a keypad or keyboard affords.

Speaking of the larger screen (by more than an inch, by the way), the N8 screen has a higher resolution and can show up to 16 million colors compared to just 65 thousand for the Bold 9700. The AMOLED display of the N8 is also protected by gorilla glass for better scratch and breakage resistance.

When it comes to the camera, there is even no comparison between the two. The N8 has a 12 megapixel sensor that is coupled with a Carl Zeiss lens and a Xenon flash for excellent photos. The Bold 9700 has a 3 megapixel sensor with a LED flash that performs below its contemporaries. The same story can be told for video. While the N8 can take HD quality video at 720p, the Bold 9700 can’t even manage VGA; its maximum resolution is at a mere 480×360 pixels. It is not even fair to compare the quality of the video taken.

To store all the large images and long videos, the N8 is equipped with 16GB of internal memory with provisions for expansion via the microSD card slot. In comparison, the Bold 9700 only has 256MB of internal memory. And even if you count the 2GB supplied microSD card, it is still nowhere near the capacity of the N8.

But at the end of the day, the people who’ve chosen to go with the Bold are not concerned with flashy stuff like a touch screen interface or high resolution cameras. The main factor is the Blackberry OS and the corporate email architecture of Blackberry. The N8 uses Symbian^3, and although it can access emails, it does not compare to the capabilities of Blackberry.
