blackberry 9900 release date canada
The rebirth of RIM is almost upon us. Last week Rogers announced their 3-year price plans for the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9900, Torch 9860 and Torch 9810. The Bold 9900 came in at $249.99 while both the 9810 and 9860 hit the $199.99 mark. A few days ago we revealed the complete price plans for the Bold 9810, no-term cost came in at $549.99 and was $50 less for each of the other yearly contracts. Images have now surfaced online from CrackBerry that shows the complete price plans for the 9900 and the 9860. Also, the 9810 doc looks like it’ll come two colours, grey (chrome) and a white version.
Research in motion, the company behind BlackBerrysmartphones, has tweeted a hint that details of new devices supporting the BlackBerry 7 OS will be available later today (27 July 2011).
Likely handsets for release are the 9900/9930, with rumours of the devices floating around the internet since the first reports of them at BlackBerry World in May earlier this year.
The new OS which was also unveiled at BlackBerry World, bring a host of new features including Near Field communication, Voice-enabled searching, and 720p HD video recording.
The new BlackBerry smartphone with that comes with a QWERTY keypad, 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen and what RIM call the “Liquid Graphics” is ready for you to pre-order.
Some of the other features include a 1.2GHz single-core System on Chip, Near Field Communications (NFC), Wi-Fi, 5-megapixel camera with flash / autofocus and HD video recording, 768MB RAM, microSD slot and 8GB onboard storage.
So you think your Bold 9780 is the best of the bunch?
Sorry, but the new Curve will steal its crown.
RIM (Research in Motion) has recently revealed several Blackberry models that are due for release this year. Some of which is the new Snapdragon powered touchscreen/QWERTY hybrid Bold Touch 9900/9930 as well as the Curve 9350 and 9370 models which will soon be released by Verizon this August (expected month of release).
Pricing for the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 has been disclosed, as UK retailers begin taking pre-orders for the slimmest-ever BlackBerry phone.
The svelte 10.5mm thick handset is available free from £30.64 per month on T-Mobile and from a shade over £35 per month on Orange, Vodafone and O2.
Three, which is also set to sell the handset, has yet to unveil its offering.
According to our source at BuyMobilePhones.net, pre-orders taken now are expected to be despatched between the middle to the end of August.
Research in Motion may be preparing to launch a new software keyboard with BlackBerry OS 7. According to leaked screenshots from the upcoming BlackBerry Torch 2 smartphone, RIM will be giving the keyboard a bit of an overhaul.
Both the 9810 (Torch 2) and 9850 (a BlackBerry Storm variation) are expected to benefit from the reformed design, which includes rectangular keys, a more pronounced spacebar, vibrant colors, and an overall cleaner look. The reduction of the keys from rounded corners to 90 degree angles somewhat resembles the Android keyboard.
It’s been almost a year since RIM launched a new BlackBerry, but the Torch 2 is now expected to be launched on AT&T in August.
In a smartphone world where shiny new contenders arrive every month, RIM hasn’t made a single move since November 2010. How the heck the company has been able to keep sales going for so long without device launches is beyond our imagination. That said, one report recently suggested that at least the Verizon iPhone 4 has been able to give RIM some trouble!
According to him the BlackBerry 9900 will be launched in about a month. He also went on to say that the Bold 9900 will mark the largest global launching in RIM’s market history. This is enough reason to believe that RIM has gone all in on the Bold 9900. And obviously RIM doesn’t want to leave anything half done with this handset and hence this handset has gone through 491 approval programs and 191 carriers.
It’s not just the Beckhams who are keen on the number seven – RIM has just announced that seven new BlackBerry blowers are on the way.
Speaking at RIM’s annual shareholders meeting, Co-CEO Jim Basillie announced that seven new BlackBerry handsets are on the way.
Basillie says they are due to launch ‘in rapid succession’ and he isn’t mincing is words – they will be arriving within the next couple of months, according to website IntoMobile.
Confirming the dates found on three of the four retailers we investigated yesterday, one of the summer releases will be the BlackBerry 9900, which comes equipped with a 1.2GHz processor, a 2.8-inch touch display and BlackBerry 7.
If you’re looking forward to the latest handset from Canadian smartphone specialist Research In Motion (RIM), a confirmed launch date for the upcoming Bold Touch 9900 means you can now get a little more excited.
After tantalising us during the recent Communic Asia Event in Singapore, the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 will officially hit retail shelves on September 15, according to UK mobile operator Three (3).
That date apparently applies to the black version only. A white model is expected to follow a few weeks later.
