Are you a fan of RIM's handsets? If you are, who can blame you? These handsets come with QWERTY keyboards that will allow you to type with ease when composing or responding to emails. They also allow you to enjoy more from the Canadian phone manufacturer's popular instant messaging service the BBM. However, there is one thing the company is not known for. This is creating slim smartphones. Oftentimes, Blackberry's lineup is criticized for their bulkiness. This is all about to change with the Blackberry Bold 9900.
When it comes to the phone's specifications, it will not disappoint. The previous version comes with a 2.44 inch display with a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels. This display did not offer a touch interface. The new version comes with a 2.8 inch TFT capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Input options include a QWERTY keyboard, a touch interface, and an optical track pad. When it comes to processing power, this new smartphone will not let you down. Its predecessor the 9780 comes packed with a 624 MHz single-core processor under the hood. Today's standards simply demand more clock speed. Its successor will allow you to enjoy twice as much processing power. It comes packed with a 1.2 GHz single-core processor under the hood. When it comes to software, it is powered by the latest BB OS 7.0. Despite offering more powerful hardware and updated software, it is a mere 10.5 mm thick. It's hard to imagine how RIM managed to cram in cutting edge technology in a phone that is 10.5 mm slim.
Compared to all the phone models in RIM's lineup, the Blackberry Bold 9900 is the slimmest of them all.
This is a new era for Research In Motion. It is now beginning to go out of its shell and create phones that are up to par with today's standards. It has now created the 9860 that offers a predominantly touch interface. It has also created the Blackberry Bold 9900 that offers every cutting edge feature RIM has to offer in a slim 10.5 mm profile that defies imagination.
