Interested in a side-by-side comparison of the current iPhone and the upcoming BlackBerry Bold? Yeah, we were too. Obvious differences not withstanding, the striking thing about the comparison is the similarities between the two devices. Dimensions of both are close to identical, though the Bold is certainly a bit thicker. The bezel on the Bold gives a visual cue to the iPhone’s bezel that is hard to ignore. Each device is clearly targeted at a slightly different market, but BlackBerry appears to have really stepped its styling game up, and while the screen on the Bold is notably smaller that its iPhone equivalent, the high resolution almost makes up for the lack of screen space. Not a whole lot of technical substance, but if eye-candy if your thing they’ve got it in droves. Hit the jump for a full video and a bunch more pics.
