The best Smartphone that RIM has created for its Blackberry enthusiasts is the Bold 9900. According to the company, they are happy that they were able to come up with this model which for them is the best as compared to the older Blackberry devices. It has a black steel-trimmed design with dimensions of 155 mm in height, 66 mm in width and thickness of 0.5 mm. This is yet to be the thinnest Qwerty Blackberry Smartphone ever created. It has a Liquid Graphic touch screen display, 1.2GHz processor with 768 MB of RAM, the latest OS7 and a camera with High Density. The user interface responds rapidly and it also loads applications surprisingly fast plus it supports HTML5 and runs Adobe Flash.
The Blackberry Bold 9900 is far more improved compared to the previous models. As always, it still has the iconic front-facing qwerty keyboard, but it is softer and a little bit larger. It now has a responsive and capacitive touch screen display of 2.8 inches with 16 M colors with 640 x 480 pixels VGA and 286 pixels per inch.
RIM has made a few modifications with the Blackberry Bold 9900. They eliminated the leatherette made back and replaced it with a carbon fiber panel which adds a nice touch to the phone. The old shiny chrome strip was replaced by a stainless steel band that doesn’t loop around its front and back just like its predecessor which is the Bold 9780. The sides of the unit have also been tweaked and built with a soft matte black plastic finish.
The 9900 has a 4-megapixel camera which takes very and good and quick photos even though it only has fixed focus. The snapper records 720p video resolution with a good frame rate. The phone’s snapper also has features like, Geo-tagging, image stabilization and face detection.
The phone is built with 8 GB of internal storage and a MicroSD card for memory expansion up to 32GB. It now supports NFC that allows users to share media files and make purchases and pay bills wirelessly. It has Bluetooth, dual band WI-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPRS, a magnetometer that works as a compass and a proximity sensor that disables the touch screen when you are on a call.
The Bold uses a 1230 mAh Lithium Ion battery that can give the phone life of up to 307 hours on both 2G and 3G on standby and a talk time up to 6.5 hours on 2G while it can last up to 6 hours on 3G and 50 hours of music playback.
In general, the Blackberry Bold 9900 is the ideal advancement for the Blackberry users today. With the existing competition in the mobile industry today, this by far is the best Smartphone that RIM has manufactured. The Bold 9900 delivers superior performance due to its 1.2GHz processor and Snapdragon chipset. Yes, it is definitely fast, but to have that stunning exterior and slim design and style, some features may have to be compromised on the inside. The battery life of the Bold 9900 had to be reduced and the camera’s Autofocus component was dropped. However, some may just ignore these minor flaws and still choose the Blackberry Bold 9900.
