Qwerty smartphone showdown: BlackBerry Bold vs. Nokia E71

For those who want a smartphone with a full keyboard, the BlackBerry Bold and the Nokia E71 are two of the best choices on the market. CNET TV's Prizefightdid a no-holds-barred comparison of the two. See which one came out the winner.

For those who want a smartphone with a full keyboard, the BlackBerry Bold and the Nokia E71 are two of the best choices on the market. CNET TV's Prizefight did a no-holds-barred comparison of the two.

My colleague Bill Detwiler has been testing the Nokia E71 and I've been testing the BlackBerry Bold, so we've informally compared these two a number of times. I'm happy to say that CNET got it right in its evaluation.

The only things we would add are that the Bold doesn't have very good battery life and the E71 doesn't allow you to access any of the inbox subfolders in your Exchange mailbox.
