Finally, after we expected it a bit earlier, the first non-touchscreen smartphone to feature the newest BlackBerry OS 6 is out in the USA and T-Mobile has it for you for $129.99 if you take it with a 2-year contract. The BlackBerry Bold 9780 will be a bit heavier on your pocket if you choose the retail price and no ties to a carrier at $449.99. RIM's latest addition to the Bold series is available in black and white and packs some more power than its predecessor, the BlackBerry Bold 9700. If you decide to upgrade, you will get 512MB of RAM and a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera.
Is the latest iteration of the BlackBerry OS worth it? As we said earlier it is more of a gradual step to bridge the gap between business professionals and the regular user. RIM promises to deliver improved social features, user interface and a new faster WebKit-based browser. With the competitive pricing and battery life, it is a chance for RIM to get back in the smartphone race. Do you like the newest BlackBerry?
