Excerpt: Research in Motion (RIM), the maker of BlackBerry has been under adverse market pressure for a while now and one of its key strategies to turn things around was to speed up its release cycle. The RIM head honchos in Waterloo, Canada have probably heard enough ranting about BlackBerry smartphones featuring fairly dated processors and a visibly aging OS.
Conclusion: The back side of the Bold 9900 is made of a soft rubbery material providing a really nice grip around the edges of the Bold 9900. Unlike the older Bold 9000, the entire back cover of the device does not come off and instead you have a door in the middle for replacing the battery, inserting a SIM card or a MicroSD card.
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.

10 December 2011
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold 9900’s superb keyboard, fantastic design and great display make it without a doubt the best BlackBerry ever produced. However, it's still very tough to recommend this over iPhone and Android alternatives when you take into account the software, and the lack of third-party apps available.
Pros: Superb design, Fantastic keyboard, Bright and crisp display
Cons: No Flash support, Limited third-part app selection, UI sometimes confusing
Excerpt: The Blackberry Bold 9900 is the newest touchscreen Blackberry and the thinnest model yet. The phone is constructed out of metal, making for a rugged and solid device ready for whatever might come its way. The 2.8 inch screen is larger than the previous generation of Blackberry and has a higher resolution as well, making for a more pleasant user experience.
Conclusion: For the ones that already worship at the altar of RIM, this is definitely the dream machine that Blackberry lovers will be looking for. Aside from this there might just have been enough juicy improvement that could well tempt users away from other platforms. Seriously, unless you are looking for a glorified games console or a £400 Digital Fart Machine, this is definitely the bee’s knees.
Excerpt: Research in Motion (RIM) unveiled a new range of Blackberry devices running the latest operating system OS 7. These devices pack a powerful processor under the frame (unlike traditional Blackberry devices) and come in great designs. The Blackberry Bold 9900 entered our labs recently and boy, I was blown away with its looks. Indeed, 'Bold' and beautiful (pun intended).
Excerpt: RIM's introduction of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is a fusion of the past and the future; the design stylings echo the popular Bold 9000 of yesteryear, but with BB OS 7 on board, it's clearly a phone for the future.
Summary: This is one of five new BlackBerry s recently launched. It looks similar to a lot of current offerings from them but it has a faster processor so your email, Internet and messaging can be moved from one place to another even faster.
