BlackBerry Bold 9000 now official
Oh yes, the BlackBerry 9000 is now official courtesy of RIM today, and it seems that the rumors about it being codenamed “Bold” was right all along. RIM even made a website for it – BlackBerryBold.com. Here’s the skinny on this new smartphone’s features.
RIM says the BlackBerry 9000 Bold was “designed for users who place a premium on quality and craftsmanship, without sacrificing the features or functionality you expect from a premium smartphone.” From the looks of it and a quick glance at the spec sheet, the BlackBerry 9000 Bold won’t let you down.
The BlackBerry 9000 Bold boasts a 624 MHz mobile processor, 128 MB Flash RAM plus 1 GB of internal memory. And that should be enough to handle your day to day communication and computing needs. But if it isn’t, rest assured that with its half-VGA (480×320 resolution) color LCD, support for microSD/SDHC memory cards, and 2 megapixel cam with video recording capability, built-in flash and 5x digital zoom (hear that, Apple?), your multimedia needs are also covered.
Other features of the BlackBerry 9000 Bold include these:
- Quad-band EDGE and tri-band HSDPA
- Integrated GPS
- Built-in Wi-Fi a/b/g
- Bluetooth 2.0
- Media player with 11 built-in equalizer pre-sets
- Speaker Independent Voice Recognition (SIVR) for Voice Activated Dialing (VAD)
It should start popping up in stores by summer. You can find more details about it here.
