BlackBerry Bold 9900 / 9930 Now Official and Available In the Summer, Playbook Update Coming Tomorrow

Labels: , , , ,

As expected, the new BlackBerry Bold is official. It's above and it's being called the Bold 9900 / 9930. Specs for this one include a 2.8-inch touchscreen display, a QWERTY keyboard, an optical trackpad, a 1.2GHz CPU, a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording, 8GB of internal storage, NFC, HSPA+ support, 768MB of RAM, a 10.5mm body that weighs 130 grams, and OS 7. The new OS will, unfortunately, never hit a previous BlackBerry since they're probably too underpowered to handle it. I assume it'll be on all of the new smartphones that RIM launches this year though.

The Bold 9900 / 9930 has already been announced by one carrier in the US and it's T-Mobile. This one will be available later this year and it looks like it might be ready for a Summer release - I'm guessing July. Check out Engadget if you're looking for a hands-on with the device.

That's not all that was announced today. RIM went on to talk a bit about the Playbook. Gizmodo mentions that RIM will be releasing an update for the Playbook tomorrow that'll give users a Facebook app and, more importantly, a video chat app. Of course, this will only be over WiFi since that's the only model currently available. To cap things off, Mobile Burn has mentioned that WiMAX, LTE, and HSPA+ models of the Playbook will be available this year. At least that's something to look forward to, right?
