The BlackBerry Holiday gift Guide for Dad

We are less than two weeks away until Christmas arrives, presents are unwrapped, and hours with the in-laws are (hesitantly) spent. If you’re like me, the very thought of Christmas shopping reminds you of the dentist. To make matters worse, shopping for Dads around Christmas can be tough.  Luckily, I’ve put together the perfect BlackBerry Holiday Gift guide for Dad.

1.    Blackberry Bold 9900/9930


For those dads who require only the manliest smartphone in the world, the Blackberry Bold 9900/9930 is pretty much the only option.  Packing arguably the best QWERTY keyboard on any smartphone ever, and a high-end “straight-to-business” look, the Bold 9900/9930 is the busy dad’s tool of choice.  With the most productivity per square inch of screen, the Bold 9900/9930 stands as RIM’s current flagship BlackBerry smartphone and an excellent choice for Dad on Christmas.

You can get a BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 through many different carriers, or check out your local Best Buy!

2.    Brushed Aluminum Case for Bold 9900

I once thought that no case for the Bold 9900 could match the naked look of the device.  I was wrong.  Dads with a BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 will love the style and extra protection Casemate’s Brushed Aluminum Case.  With a futuristic, yet subtle look, this case hits the sweet spot between style and protection for Dad’s BlackBerry of choice.

3.    GPS Ski Maps App

Hitting the slopes this winter?  If so, having an app that maps out the entire mountain and find your location on a hill could be useful. Hook dad up with GPS Ski Maps and he’ll have access to all the route information, including difficulty, speed, and even have the ability to share tracks to Facebook.  For 30$, it’s a little steep, but it might just get the “This is so cool!” reaction from Dad that you’ve been looking for.

4.  Amzer AMZ93463 Lighter Socket Phone Mount with Charging and Case System for BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930

If Dad spends lots of time in the car, he could use a car mount.  If he doesn’t have one already, getting a car mount specially designed for his BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 would be a great gift.  When uses with voice-activated apps or calling, Dad can use his Bold in the car hands-free and keep it legal too (in some places)!  With a combination lighter socket charger and mount, Dad can charge his Bold and mount it at the same time.  This is one of those win-win gifts that you know will go to good use!
