Research in Motion is clearly trying to keep up with the Smartphone market. With so many Smartphones on the market, the only thing keeping the company’s head above the water with respect to Blackberry phones is the Blackberry messenger that helps you keep in constant touch with your friends and the amazing E-mail feature that notifies you of an email as a phone would notify one of a new SMS. All these features are available on Blackberry Smartphones for an affordable data plan.
Blackberry Smartphones were considered phones with boring designs when compared with other Smartphones and people were beginning to gravitate towards phones with more sleek designs. It is no surprise therefore that Research in Motion released a sleek blackberry into the market that certainly caused a buzz.
The Blackberry Bold 9900/9930 Smartphones are so light, they are a delight to hold in the palm of your hands. They are packed with technical gizmos and at the same time, designed in an ultra modern style. These devices are packed with the Blackberry Operating system 7 which allows for faster browsing and fluid graphics. The Smartphones have a QWERTY keypad like all Blackberry Smartphones and at the same time have the touch-screen feature that enables you to scroll through widgets simply by sliding your finger across the skin and also enabling you to select an app by tapping on it with your finger instead of using the track pad. If you are of course used to using the trackpad, you might find it totally unnecessary to use the touch-screen feature. The camera on this phone is 5 megapixels and allows for amazing HD video recording. The phones support both 2G and 3G network and rumours have it that soon, the 4G-supporting versions will be released. The phones have 1.2GHz QC8655 processors and internal memory of 8GB and a micro SD slot that allows for expansion of memory for up to 32GB.
The Blackberry Bold 9790 was released a few months after the Blackberry Bold 9900/9930 were released on to the market. Both are WhatsAppp messenger compatible as their OS versions are basically the same. We don’t really know why Research in Motion deemed it necessary to release this Smartphone into the market as it is not too different from the Blackberry bold 9900. It features a less powerful Marvel Tarvor MG1 1GHz processor and also features the powerful OS 7. It is 27g lighter than the blackberry 9900and also has 8GB internal memory with a micro SD slot that can also allow for memory expansion of 32GB. It also has a touch and type feature and is a smaller, slimmer version of the blackberry bold 9900. This phone also has a 5 megapixel camera but has been said not to give the awesome feature of High Definition video recording. The camera features on both phones have face tagging and image stabilization.
Both phones are NFC-enabled and can be used with many other NFC-enabled devices red more using this link, such as other Smartphones, posters and payment tills (for commercial purposes). Both of these phones also come pre-installed with apps that will help you utilize it to its maximum. These apps include facebook, twitter, wikitude and a few others.
As stated earlier, no one can explain why Research in Motion decided to release the Blackberry Bold 9790 because as far as we can see, it is a very close sibling to the 9900. WhatsApp on BlackBerry devices are now so popular we are predicting the end of the use of MMB- more on getting whatsapp here on CellphoneBOB. With the possible release of the Blackberry 10 sometime at the end of this year, we are hoping for a big difference that will blow us away.
