RIM has just introduced the BlackBerry Bold 9900 to China. We told you earlier in an article a month or so ago, that RIM had introduced the BlackBerry Bold 9930, the 9900's CDMA brother, to China. The 9900 will fill the GSM void for Research In Motion and once again bring a powerhouse of a phone to the population of over a billion people. Maybe after making those iPhones, the workers will be able to afford a phone that actually IS a phone like the Bold 9900 and not a toy.
