Two new BlackBerry models with a slimmed down design and faster processors were unveiled by Research in Motion (RIM) this week for shipping this summer.
The Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones are also the first to use a new BlackBerry 7 OS, considered an incremental improvement until RIM releases a version of the QNX OS (now used on its PlayBook tablet) for smartphones. The 7 OS gives you a better browser and built in productivity apps. You may also keep your personal and business content separate.
The new Bold models have 4G support and get a speedy 1.2 Ghz. They also support 720p HD video, WiFi and *NFC. Other features include a 8GB of on-board memory, touch screen as well as BlackBerry’s QWERTY keyboard.
*NFC or near field communication is a short range wireless technology that can be tagged onto objects like a poster or T-shirt. Your phone can then instantly read the NFC tags placed on various objects to pick up information.
