The BlackBerry Bold 9900 has got to amaze you once more. Cameras, internet browsing, HTML emails – all were included on RIM’s phones years after they had become standard fare on other handsets. But the Bold 9000 finally offers some cutting-edge tech, and in an attractive package to boot. Its 1.2GHz processor, high-spec touchscreen, brand new OS7 and HD video camera are all specs we never really expected a BlackBerry to have!Let’s take a look at the 9900 package, together with the phone; the accessories include a charger, a phone battery, a charger, a data cable, a handsfree and a user’s guide.
On the front is an incredibly sharp touchscreen. It is of 640 x 480 pixels on a 2.8 inch. The touchscreen is capacitive and highly responsive.
The back of the phone is of a “bold” design with the word “bold” imprinted at the back of the centre. Apparently, it shows the entity of the phone.
The 9900 comes with a keypad, which definitely facilitates fast typing and fast sharing.
To be fair to BlackBerry, the camera on the Bold 9900 is not its main selling point. What they have is a 5MP snapper. It’s not too shabby but also not very adventurous, considering that various phones have had better cameras. Fortunately, it comes with an LED light too, which makes photo taking better in darker conditions.
Of course, how can you miss the 3.5 mm headphone slot if you are to enjoy the media experience? The beauty here is that the headphone jack gives you something to rest your fingers against as you hold the 9900 in your hand.
At 115 x 66 x 10.5 mm, you can slide it into your pocket without too much bulk. In fact, that’s one of the 9900’s key selling points. According to RIM, they say this is the slimmest BlackBerry yet. If you are looking for a slim smartphone, BlackBerry Bold 9900 is doubtlessly a good choice!
