• Press Release: BlackBerry Bold Touchscreen officially announced

    Yep, you read it, RIM officially announced the BlackBerry Bold Touchscreen in a press release today, which (I guess) everyone was waiting for. The Bold 9900/9930 will feature a Touchscreen and a QWERTY keypad-although I'm not so sure that it will work properly on what looks like a small screen to work with. In spite of this, I am PUMPED at this announcement, of all the awesome specs the Bold will have. All the rumored specs are now shown to be true:
    • 115 x 66 x 10.5 mm, approximately 130 g
    • 2.8″ capacitive touch screen display – VGA (640×480), 287 dpi resolution
    • 1.2 GHz Processor, 768 MB RAM
    • Ultra-easy QWERTY keyboard, optical trackpad
    • 8 GB on-board memory, plus microSD slot supporting up to 32 GB cards
    • NFC technology
    • 5.0 MP camera, supports 720p HD video recording
    • Orientation Sensor (Accelerometer), Digital Compass (Magnetometer), Proximity Sensor
    • Built-in GPS / aGPS
    • Dual-Band Wi-Fi® – 802.11 b/g/n at 2.4 GHz and 802.11 a/n at 5 GHz
    • Bluetooth® 2.1+EDR support
    • GSM/EDGE
    • 1230 mAh removable, rechargeable battery
    • BlackBerry 7 OS

    Wireless Network Support:
    • 9900: Tri-BandHSPA+,Quad-BandGSM/EDGE
    • 9930: Dual-BandCDMA/EV-DORev.A,Dual-BandHSPA+,Quad-Band

    8 GB on-board memory...that's just crazy! With the 1.2 GHz processor, I think this will be one speedy phone. HD Video Recording, BlackBerry OS7...wow. I just can't wait for the release of this phone!
