BlackBerry Bold 9700 successfully runs BB OS 6 (Video)

One of the hottest features on the new BlackBerry Torch 9800 is the new BlackBerry OS 6. What if you don’t want a slide-out keyboard or touchscreen display? Well, based on this video, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 has no trouble with the new OS.

We already knew that this smartphone would be getting the upgraded operating system, but it is good to see the new OS in action on the BlackBerry Bold 9700. The short video seems to demonstrate that OS 6 is relatively smooth on the older hardware and we get to have a look mostly at the web browser.

According to the reviewer in the video, interestingly enough, BB OS 6 might be running even faster on the Bold 9700 than it is on the newer Torch 9800. Maybe this is because it doesn’t have to deal with more complex touchscreen input; there is no pinch-to-zoom, for instance.

It probably won’t be long before OS 6 is made available official to 9700 owners, but if you want the latest you’ll want to wait for the BlackBerry Bold 9780 with its 5MP camera, 512MB memory, and OS 6 pre-installed.
