For those who did not succumb to the allure of the iPhone, there's another slickster now avail—the new BlackBerry Bold. Material Interest is giving the glossy new edition high marks: "Battery life is excellent (outpacing that of the iPhone's), and RIM's first 3G offering is plenty fast with downloads and e-mailing...not to mention a thinner body and chrome detailing." The downside? An "ugly" but "smudge-proof" pleather backing, and there's not yet a way to upgrade your software. [Material Interest/Men.style.com]
