[Youtube Video Link for Mobile Viewing]

T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9780 Commercial has hit the air since the previous “Love What You Do” Campaign by featuring T-Mobile Bold 9780, especially its white version.

Several days ago, we were informed that BlackBerry Torch 9800 from AT&T was rated as “Readers’ Choice Winner – Best Smartphone of 2010” from LapTop’s results. Now, it’s good to see some other commercials on BlackBerry devices. Honestly, when I first saw the BlackBerry Bold 9780, its white version caught my attention. I do love this commercial, since it actually is a great improvement over the previous “Love What You Do” Campaign. And it greatly shows us some great features of Bold 9780, such as the new WebKit browser on the 9780.
