The New Blackberry Bold Touch Is Here
RIM introduced the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 models, also dubbed “Bold Touch.” at its BlackBerry World event in Orlando, Florida.
The new Bold Touch has Blackberry’s classic QWERTY keyboard, it also comes with a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen, even though it is a new feature in its design, it will not have much impact since we live surrounded by 4-inch screens. The thing that is really new is that this is RIM’s thinnest phone yet at 10.5mm.
The devices are differentiated primarily by the cellular networks that they support. The 9900 will run 4G via HSPA+ connectivity, while the 9930 is RIM’s world version with dual-band CDMA and quad-band GSM. Both devices get a blazing fast 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, a five megapixel camera that can shoot 720p video, NFC (near-field communication) capability, 8 gigabytes of onboard storage and the usual mix of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The new Blackberrys will be on the shelves this summer, and both will be running the brand new BlackBerry OS 7, which promises a faster browser and improved user experiences.
