Bold 9700 comes equipped with a hi-resolution 480×320 screen that can display over 65,000 different colors. The Onyx is smaller than its predecessor, and luckily not as bulky as the first generation Bold.

Onyx comes with an optical trackpad for improved navigation. The trackball that annoyed many users is thankfully gone.
