new blackberry 9900
Phones 4 U and Carphone Warehouse have revealed mid-August release dates for the new BlackBerry 9900 RIM handset.
Phones 4 U said it will begin selling the BlackBerry 9900 on August 19 free on a £35 per month contract with a “range of networks”. Customers can already pre-order the 9900 from the Phones 4 U website on both Orange and Vodafone.
The retailer said it also plans to sell the two other devices from BlackBerry’s new handset range, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 and BlackBerry Torch 9810, but has not revealed pricing or availability.
Research in Motion officially announced the BlackBerry Bold 9930 back in May, at the same time with the Bold 9900. The two smartphones are pretty much the same, the sole difference being that the 9930 has both GSM / HSDPA and CDMA / Ev-Do connectivity, while the 9900 is a GSM / HSDPA device only.
Naturally, the CDMA / Ev-Do capabilities allow the 9930 to be used on Verizon’s and Sprint’s networks. While neither of the two carriers has announced the Bold 9930, the smartphone has been spotted recently showing off a Verizon intro screen – thus VWZ could introduce the new Bold soon.
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.
RIM announced the BlackBerry Bold 9900 back in May for a summer release. However, the company has since had to delay the launch to September. It’s not certain what caused the delay although rumors have been blaming BlackBerry OS problems. Today, FCC documents show that the handset has just passed through, signaling that the hardware, at least, is ready for a fall launch.
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 features a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen along with a full QWERTY keyboard, with a look typical of traditional BlackBerry devices. It runs the BlackBerry 7 OS, which is actually BlackBerry 6.1, and sports a 1.2GHz processor with 8GB of storage, microSD card slot, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of 720p HD video capture.
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.
No less than four new BlackBerry smartphones are reportedly headed to Bell Canada, which is getting ready to launch them starting next month, much to the joy of hardcore BB fans who have been (probably) frustrated lately by the lack of new RIM handsets, and the Android invasion.
First of all, we’ve got the officially announced BlackBerry Bold 9900, which should be released by Bell in late August. Also in late August, the carrier will likely introduce the BlackBerry Torch 9810, aka Torch 2 (featuring a sliding QWERTY keyboard, like the previous Torch model), and the BlackBerry Torch 9860 (a touch-only handset with a 3.7 inch screen).
If you’re going to spend far too much on a smartphone on eBay, you could go with a collectible edition, or you could splurge on an unreleasesd model, hoping to make all your friends jealous as they wait out days until the phone’s official release. If you find yourself leaning towards the latter category, you may want to check out an auction currently taking place for a RIM BlackBerry Bold 9900, brand new and apparently a final retail edition.
Vodafone has granted a sneak peek at the new BlackBerry 9900 in action. Step this way to check the latest YouTube video out.
The new Bold features a familiar BlackBerry shell, with everyone’s favourite physical Qwerty keyboard and a super-sharp 2.8-inch screen. However, look closer and you’ll see that RIM has made some major improvements.
That 2.8-inch screen is now a fully touchable affair – the first of its kind in the Bold series. That means, of course, that the BlackBerry interface is touch-sensitive, letting you open apps and scroll through pictures with your finger.
