RIM launches New BB Bold 9900 & 9930; alongwith BB 7 OS

The ‘New’ BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 are the upgraded variants of BB’s old model – BlackBerry Bold. There are lots of thing to look forward in these two, for instance new BlackBerry 7 OS, and I believe the sales will be at-par the company’s expectations. In Waterloo, ON – RIM unveiled two stunning smartphones that appealed the lookers.

The shiny exterior, stainless steel framea as well as a lustrous glass-weave backplate are the new features which are visible on prima-facie. The thickness has also been reduce to only 10.5 mm. The optimized design as well quality material is more evident while holding it in your own hands. But these aren’t the only features which makes it appealing to us. The New Blackberry 7 OS makes the performance more powerful, thus giving the user out-of-the world experience. The easy-to-use qwerty keyboard as well as high resolution, capacitive, brilliant touch-screen features are quite a refreshing add-on too. Thus, giving BlackBerry loyalists more reason say – Hip Hip Hurray!

You can take a look a hands on demo of the both the phones at the end of this post.

The Press Release says – Because of its new performance-driven platform, the BlackBerry offers 1.2 GHz processor, powered by BlackBerry 7 – Liquid Graphic Touch Screen that gives smooth and highly responsive touch on pictures, web browsing, etc,, as well as the 287 dpi display gives eye-popping clarity of visuals. The new platform also offer support 4G networks; the 9900 supports HSPA+ connectivity, and the 9930 supports CDMA EV-DO Rev. A and HSPA+ global roaming on GSM/UMTS networks.

Sounds real good!

[ad#ga-cbox-right]BlackBerry 7 OS in true sense, it could be said as the upgrade of BlackBerry OS .There are many features and additional apps that BB 7 offers. It is especially designed to power the BlackBerry Bold’s new performance-driven platform. It not only offers faster and an easier user experience but it also has enhanced browsing, voice-activated searches, the facility to separate and manage corporate content from personal content, as well as added, out of the box, personal as well productivity apps.

It won’t be hard to notice the enhanced BlackBerry Browser in BlackBerry 7. Due to the liquid graphics which gives powerful rendering as well as seamless panning and zooming with the help of Blackberry 7 OS the web pages loads in no time. The new browser also embraces support for other HTML5 elements, for instance HTML5 Video.

As first introduced in BlackBerry 6 the Universal Search feature, BlackBerry 7 takes it a step further by adding voice-activated search. Thus making it more convenient and easier to search on web as well as on smartphone at your voice-activated search.

As the BlackBerry is known as the “Business Phone” which gives easy and fast features for the businessmen to stay connected with their clients and work; keeping this in mind, RIM now has tried to make it personal as well as a business smartphone. BlackBerry 7 helps to manage and separate your corporate content from personal content. It lets you surf through social sites like facebook, twitter, multimedia, games, etc as well as protects your highly confidentially corporate contents. BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5.0.3 works together with BlackBerry Balance that helps the user to control erasing, coping or forwarding the corporate content from the handset to other device or personal contacts.

The only sad news for the BlackBerry users is BlackBerry 7 OS is only available in New BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 and would not be compatible to the other old models of RIM. This is aimed at increasing the sale of these two new Bold models.

Come this summer, NewBlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones are likely to be availables. Do you  plan to lay your hands on one brand new one? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
