RIM has officially announced two new BlackBerry smartphones – the Bold 9900 (Dakota) and Bold 9930 (Montana) which are the thinnest yet that runs Blackberry OS 7.
The phones pack a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor that has a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen 640×480 in resolution with a 287dpi pixel density. On the back is a 5MP camera with 720p video recording and inside is 8GB of internal storage (with microSD expanded up to 32 GB) and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. At 10.5mm it’s RIM’s thinnest handset yet, featuring a full QWERTY keyboard. And dual-band Wi-Fi®, a built-in compass (magnetometer) and Bluetooth 2.1.
The new 5 MP camera comes complete with both flash and image stabilisation technology, meaning taking quick and clear snaps on the go is as easy as a walk in the park. The new handset also houses 11 photo modes as well as video recording, meaning it’s incredibly easy to capture all those spontaneous moments. This is great for those that love to share their photos and videos with friends and family as such files can be directly uploaded to any social networking site or alternatively transferred by email or MMS.
As well as Facebook, there is also an application for Twitter which directly links you to the site, enabling you to post links, update photos and be amongst the first to know what’s happening in the world.
There is also the option of richer browsing, enabling users to manage an abundance of open websites through tabbed browsing. This in turn allows customers to bookmark their favourite sites, using either custom names or alternatively branded icons. These icons can then be placed on the homescreen, making accessing them an extremely easy and hassle-free process. This is one of the all-new features that have been introduced by the Blackberry Torch.
