We’ve all known something new will be coming out of RIM, and here it is. Fresh from the BlackBerry World Conference in Orlando comes the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 and 9930. Both phones pack a nifty surprise – the all-new BlackBerry 7!
Essentially, the BlackBerry 9930 and 9900 are basically the same handset, with the former being a CDMA handset and the latter being the GSM variant. Both will be sporting an upgraded 1.2GHz chip along with 768MB of RAM making them quite capable smartphones, at least on paper. There’s also the nifty combo of a full-QWERTY keypad and touchscreen display for those who want the best of both worlds in terms of input. And yes, mobile 4G is also added to the mix via HSPA+. Hear that, Globe?
