At a time when most handset players are developing devices with video calling capabilities, Research In Motion has recently launched BlackBerry Bold 9900, a touchscreen phone with Qwerty keypad. Everything about it is good, including its version 7 operating system, but unfortunately there is no secondary camera in the phone and this deprives users from making video calls using this smartphone.
However, if you are not too keen on the dual camera functionality, BlackBerry Bold 9900 is worth having on your wish list. It is built on the new BlackBerry 7 OS and has a 1.2 GHz processor. Other features of the phone include HD video recording, 24 bit high resolution graphics, and advanced sensors enabling new augmented reality applications, and Wikitude that integrates seamlessly with BlackBerry Messenger 6.
BlackBerry Bold 9900 has a few features that haven’t appeared before in BlackBerrys. It is amongst the thinnest Blackberry phones ever produced by RIM with physical dimensions of just 115 x 66 x 10.5 mm. It is also the first BlackBerry smartphone to include built in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), a new technology that is enabling many new and exciting capabilities, including the ability to pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags by simply tapping the smartphone in the right direction.
BlackBerry Bold 9900 also uses RIM’s new Liquid Graphics responsive touch interface technology, which combines a dedicated graphics processor with a high resolution display.
