BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, 9930 announced!
Over at the BlackBerry World Conference in the US, Research in Motion announced two new handsets — the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9930, including a spanking new BlackBerry 7 OS.
And RIM has finally decided it’s time to make their Blackberrys slimmer — the Bold 9900/9930 are now just 10.5mm thin (previous models come at 14mm thick).
BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, 9930 specs:
â€¢ 2.8â€³ capacitive touch screen display â€“ VGA (640Ã—480), 287 dpi resolution
â€¢ QWERTY keyboard, optical trackpad
â€¢ 1.2 GHz processor
â€¢ 768 MB RAM
â€¢ 8GB on-board memory,
â€¢ microSD slot supporting up to 32GB
â€¢ NFC technology
â€¢ 5MP camera w/ 720p HD video recording
â€¢ Orientation Sensor (Accelerometer), Digital Compass (Magnetometer), Proximity Sensor
â€¢ GPS with aGPS support
â€¢ Dual-Band WiFi â€“ 802.11 b/g/n @ 2.4 GHz and 802.11 a/n @ 5GHz
â€¢ Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
â€¢ 1230 mAh Li-Ion battery
â€¢ BlackBerry 7 OS
The Blackberry Bold 9900 is Tri-Band HSPA+ and Quad-Band GSM/EDGE while the BB Bold 9930 is Dual-Band CDMA/EV-DORev.A, Dual-Band HSPA+ and Quad-Band GSM/EDGE.
I reckon we will most probably be seeing the BB Bold Touch 9900 released in the Philippines (and could greatly benefit from the HSPA+ roll-out of Globe).
The two handsets also sport the new BlackBerry 7 OS which RIM claims offer an easier and faster user experience with improved browsing, voice-activated searches, the ability to manage personal content separately from corporate content, as well as additional personal and productivity apps out of the box.
