BlackBerry Bold 9700 has Highest Radiation Levels 2010

Last year we reported (BlackBerry #4 Highest Radiation Level) that the BlackBerry Curve was #4 on the list of phones with the highest radiation levels.   The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has reviewed the new phones out in 2010 and determined that a new BlackBerry, the Bold 9700, is now #1 on the list. (see chart)

The jury is still out on whether cell phone emissions cause brain tumors, but there are several studies that show increased instances of brain tumors for those who have used a cell phone for 10 or more years.  The EWG’s official recommendation is that all users opt for either a low emission phone or use hands-free devices to separate themselves from direct contact.

Interestingly enough, cell phone manufacturers are not required to publish the amount of radiation their phones emit.

As a note, the Motorola Droid was #2 on the list for 2010.
