BlackBerry Bold Tops New Radiation Ranking
Cell phone tradition has been a serious issue. In eWeek, it discussed a study done by the Environmental Working
Group which stated that the Blackberry Bold 9700 has the highest radiation level for cellphone sreleased in 2010.
The Blackberry Bold 9700 has a SAR of 1.55 W/kg. Researches haven’t decided if this radiation is truly bad for you
. The radiation level is still withing the federal guideline and rules. FCC standards limit the radiation
absorbed by the cell phone user’s brain and body to certain SAR, which is measured by the amount of the phone’s
radiation energy absorbed per kilogram of tissue. The Environmental Working Group says that more research is need
on this much controversial topic.
