RIM continues to prove that despite the changing world of smartphones, its business focused , QWERTY-keyboard packing handsets are still the king of the roost and the workplace phone of choice

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 has kept its business credibility and despite heavy competition has been crowned T3’s Work Gadget of the Year 2011.

Brushing off the fact that it lacks a touchscreen and still uses a QWERTY keyboard, the Bold has proven that when it comes to business, speed is money, and when it comes to efficiency, this handset is hard to beat.

Fighting off stiff competition from the Apple iPhone 4, RIM has shrugged off its doubters showing that in the business market it is still the top dog and brand to beat as the likes of Apple, Samsung and HTC looking to close the gap in the profitable market.
