Research In Motion is expected to launch the Blackberry Bold 9900 smartphone on August 11.
The device was earlier expected to be launched in June but due to a delay in the release of BlackBerry Playbook and some other unspecified problems RIM had to postpone the launch.
BlackBerry Bold 9900 is by far the slimmest handset from RIM and it supports fourth generation or 4G networks with HSPA+ data connectivity. The device is powered by a 1.2 GHz processor that operates at almost double the speed of the processors of existing BlackBerry phones.
The device also features 768 MB of RAM that ensures smooth functioning. The new handset will feature 8 GB of onboard memory for storage, along with support for 32 GB of expandable memory via SDHC cards. The operating system has also been totally overhauled. The new Bold Touch handsets will feature BlackBerry OS 7, which gives fast yet reliable performance on most tasks.
As reported earlier by ‘The Mobile Indian’, BlackBerry will launch a total of seven new handsets for the Indian market and this has been confirmed by Varghese M Thomas, director of corporate communications for RIM in India and SAARC.
The price of the device is expected to be more than Rs 30,000.
