"BlackBerry fans will fall in love with the Bold; it's fast, sports a stellar display, and offers a great e-mail experience and near-perfect keyboard. Although it costs $100 more than the 8GB iPhone, the Bold is much more of a business-class device, whereas the iPhone has more consumer appeal. The $199, Windows Mobile–powered Samsung Epix directly competes with the Bold in that it offers a physical keyboard, 3G and Wi-Fi, and a touchscreen. But we much prefer the Bold because it features a more attractive design, better browser, and superior operating system. If you are willing to carry a larger and heavier device than the BlackBerry Curve, the Bold is worth the splurge."
