Blackberry Bold 9900 Review

 

Blackberry Bold 9900 Review: does the Blackberry Bold 9900 Series live up to the marketing pitch? Let's take a look.

BlackBerry Bold 9900 review: Business reimagined

 

A brand new OS, more speed, a facelift and a high-res touchscreen, the latest of the Bold messengers is listening for the roar of the crowd. There's no going back to the old rational and composed self - give it danger, thrills and excitement. The...

Enhanced email and data security ; 2.8" 16M-color TFT touchscreen of VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels) ; QWERTY keyboard ; Quad-band GSM support and quad-band 3G with HSDPA ; Dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity ; NFC capabilities ; GPS receiver and...

BlackBerry Internet Service account is a must to enjoy all phone features ; Fixed focus camera of outdated and unintuitive interface ; No video-call camera ; No Flash support ; Non-hot-swappable memory card ; No FM radio ; No haptic feedback

More screen resolution and power than BlackBerry owners know what to do with? Certainly not. It’s more than they’re used to though and that makes the Bold Touch 9900 a very attractive upgrade option.

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9900 (T-Mobile)

 

The new BlackBerry Bold 9900 on T-Mobile will delight owners of older BlackBerries who have been waiting for an upgrade. But while the hardware is shiny and new, the Bold 9900's "new" OS is too similar to older versions to make a real difference. While...

Thin, sleek design. Excellent QWERTY keyboard. Sharp screen

Very expensive. No Wi-Fi calling. Poor-quality apps compared with Android and iOS

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is sleeker and faster than before, but otherwise it's still more of the same, instead of the revolution Research In Motion desperately needs.

BlackBerry Bold 9900 (T-Mobile)

 

The ultra-elegant Blackberry Bold 9900 has a superb keyboard and a responsive touchscreen, but you don't get 4G speeds.

While very elegant, the $299 BlackBerry Bold 9900 suffers from the same affliction as its Verizon cousin, the $249 Bold 9930. Both represent the ultimate in messaging devices, but the tiny displays and lackluster app selection leave us wanting more....

Luxurious design, Fast dual-core performance, Excellent physical keyboard, Loud speaker, Long battery life

BlackBerry Bold 9930 review

 

The BlackBerry Bold 9930. You've got to hand it to RIM — the company may be spinning its wheels, but it's certainly not sitting still. While we've been hearing rumors and seeing leaked photos for...

Gorgeous industrial design ; Best-in-class physical keyboard ; Speed and graphics performance greatly improved

BlackBerry OS is dated and clunky ; Software selection is abysmal ; Cramped display can be troublesome

This is a die-hards-only phone, one of the last of its breed

RIM BlackBerry Bold 9900 Review

 

It's time to take a look at T-Mobile's new BlackBerry smartphone – the Bold 9900. Obviously, it's the GSM cousin to the CDMA flavored Bold 9930 , but what separates it is the hefty $299.99 on-contract it's flaunting and the support for T-Mobile's HSPA+...

The Blackberry Bold 9900 is the newest touchscreen Blackberry and the thinnest model yet. The phone is constructed out of metal, making for a rugged and solid device ready for whatever might come its way. The 2.8 inch screen is larger than the previous...

There was a time when BlackBerry used to enjoy an enviable position among the corporate set. Its secure push email was so popular that RIM could afford to omit even basics like a camera. But the evolution of the smartphone market forced RIM to come up...
