Picture of retail box and AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9900, days from November 6th launch
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is equipped with a 2.8 inch touchscreen with resolution of 640 x 480, and is powered by a single-core 1.2GHz processor with 768MB of RAM on board. 8GB of native storage can be pumped up to 40GB using a microSD card and the 5MP camera on back captures video at 720p. The phone is NFC enabled and of course, it has that huge physical QWERTY keyboard. With BlackBerry 7 OS installed, the browsing experience is the best ever on a BlackBerry with buttery smooth scrolling and responsive "pinch to zoom".
If you're partial to the platform, you will have to decide if you want to lock in for two years with a quite serviceable handset, especially if you do a lot of typing, or wait to see what changes BBX brings to the new RIM BlackBerry SuperPhones expected in the first quarter of 2012.
