RIM BlackBerry Bold 9900 Review

16 October 2011
  • Summary: The design of the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 sees it pick up pieces from previous Bold handsets. It’s larger than the previous 9700 family returning more to the form of the original 9000. It’s broader in the hand and neatly bordered by a classy metal band. It measures 115 x 66 x 10.5mm; it’s only the thickness that really differs from the original, RIM shaving an impressive 4mm off previous handsets.
  • Pros: 1.2 GHz processor is FAST, Much improved web browser, Welcome return to the “wide body” design, Best keyboard ever!, Touchscreen adds to the usability of the iconic BlackBerry form factor, Luxurious use of materials, Excellent build quality, HD Video Recording finally here!, NFC support is nerdy cool, even if we don’t know what to do with it right now
  • Cons: Smaller battery than on previous Bolds, No autofocus on the camera, More RAM but less usable memory

Blackberry Bold 9900

22 September 2011
  • Summary: Sporting a price tag of Rs. 32,490, the Bold 4 does look like it has come nicely dressed in a suit with a crisply pressed shirt. However, beyond the looks, there is a bit of familiarity to the entire package. OS7 looks a lot like the OS6, and the age-old problem of not enough apps just persists. The touchscreen plus QWERTY combo works well. However, we would recommend the latest Bold just for its superb display and the fantastic keypad.
  • Pros: Brilliant bright and vivid display, Touchscreen capability is a value add, QWERTY keypad is the best we have seen so far, Elegant looks and sleek form factor
  • Cons: Still not enough apps, Battery life isn't as good as the Bold 3, Pricey

BlackBerry Bold 9900 review: Business reimagined

GSM Arena
20 September 2011
  • Conclusion: More screen resolution and power than BlackBerry owners know what to do with? Certainly not. It’s more than they’re used to though and that makes the Bold Touch 9900 a very attractive upgrade option. More touchscreen than the typical business user needs? Negative. Touchscreen and QWERTY work together, not against each other, in the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900. And just to be clear – we’re not questioning the latest of the Bolds.
  • Pros: Enhanced email and data security, 2.8" 16M-color TFT touchscreen of VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels), QWERTY keyboard, Quad-band GSM support and quad-band 3G with HSDPA, Dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity, NFC capabilities, GPS receiver and BlackBerry maps preloaded, digital compass, 5 megapixel fixed-focus camera, LED flash, HD video, 720p@30fps, 1.2GHz QC8655 processor, 768MB RAM, 8GB of inbuilt storage, BlackBerry OS v7, Trackpad, microSD card slot (up to 16GB), D...
  • Cons: BlackBerry Internet Service account is a must to enjoy all phone features, Fixed focus camera of outdated and unintuitive interface, No video-call camera, No Flash support, Non-hot-swappable memory card, No FM radio, No haptic feedback

BlackBerry Bold 9900 (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
3 September 2011
  • Summary: While very elegant, the $299 BlackBerry Bold 9900 suffers from the same affliction as its Verizon cousin, the $249 Bold 9930. Both represent the ultimate in messaging devices, but the tiny displays and lackluster app selection leave us wanting more. For $100 less, the myTouch 4G Slide boasts a great keyboard, a superb 8-MP camera, true 4G data, and a much bigger 3.7-inch display.

Expert Review

22 August 2011
  • Summary: Research in Motion (RIM) has come a long way since the introduction of the first member of the Bold family, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 in 2008. The Bold 9000 was a massive hit in both the enterprise and mainstream markets due to its excellent QWERTY keyboard, 2.6-inch screen and a more appealing look. A year later, RIM released the successor, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 .

Blackberry Bold 9900 Review

18 August 2011
  • Summary: Great! The Blackberry Bold 9900 represents the pinnacle of Blackberry QWERTY design, there’s no question about that. The Bold 9900 improves upon the Bold 9700 with an even better keyboard, much better web page rendering and high-speed javascript execution. All of that is in a chassis that is better and smaller. But… However, the Bold 9900 also has the same weaknesses than the 9700 had.
