Excerpt: Another BlackBerry out of RIM? We might as well consider them done and finished. Or should we? With a brand new take on BlackBerry hardware and an improved and enhanced operating system in BlackBerry 7, RIM hasn’t been sitting still. I have been using a BlackBerry 9900 for over a week, and as a reformed BlackBerry addict, I have some thoughts on this latest flagship smartphone out of Waterloo. Is this the device that’s going to save RIM?
Conclusion: This new Bold form factor of capacitive touch screen combined with a luxurious front facing QWERTY keyboard makes the BlackBerry Bold 9900 a worthy flagship device for RIM . It has been a real pleasure using it. I’m so going to buy one when the device is available. Are you?
Summary: This phone will be released in summer, I suppose in mid July – the company reps kept silence about the terms and the price. But apparently the price will be similar to that of Bold 2 by the time of its release which means that we will see a very attractive phone that combines a nice touchscreen and the best QWERTY key pad – there are no analogues of this phone on the market.
Conclusion: The Bold Touch 9900 is an excellent messaging device. The addition of touchscreen functionality is the best feature, making the Bold Touch easier to use than previous models. NFC functionality is also going to increase the appeal.
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 is a member of the popular Bold series & this impressive handset comes with a highly useable touch screen too. Other members of this popular series include the BlackBerry Bold 9700, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 & the BlackBerry Bold 9780. The Bold Touch 9900 is a 3G capable Smartphone which has a slim & well proportioned casing, making it easy to use in a single hand as well as being easy to carry when not in use.
Conclusion: The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is an elegant phone with simple design and safety measures. The BBM service offers great performance as always. Instant Messaging, BlackBerry App world and many such applications have done justice to this bold series phone. But, with no front camera and less powerful battery it can give you bitter taste. We give this phone 4 star rating.
