Say hello to BlackBerry Bold 9900!
What was the first thing out my mouth after unboxing the BlackBerry Bold 9900? Three letters: W-O-W. This phone is the most stunning, sleek, stylish, and great-to-hold device that BlackBerry has ever shipped. The previous models just pale in comparison when it comes to design and after using it for a couple of hours I can already say that it also dwarfs all of them in terms of performance. This is the best BlackBerry ever to hit the market.
Design and Build
After using touchscreen smartphones for over a year I was looking forward to a good QWERTY keypad based phone again. In that department I personally believe that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 has the best QWERTY keypad ever made for any smartphone. It’s a dream to type on. Long e-mails, text messages, and other text-based apps are all next to effortless. The size of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is perfect for two hands and the ergonomic design just speeds everything up. The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is also the thinnest smartphone in the BlackBerry line-up.
How about the display? The BlackBerry Bold 9900 has the best one yet among all the models of the BlackBerry family in the market today. The 2.8″ screen with 640×480 resolution combined with the 1.2GHz processor and the Liquid Graphics technology delivers smooth, fluid, and flowing animations, texts, and images. One of my main complaints with previous BlackBerry models is that the graphics was a bit sluggish. That’s all gone with the Bold 9900.
It might be too early to discuss the over-all user experience since I’ve only had a few hours with the phone. However I can say that I’m very happy so far with what I’m seeing. I’ll be writing a more in-depth review that will cover browsing, apps, and other important features in the next few days. Before I go though let me just emphasize the keypad of the BB Bold 9900. It’s so much easier to type on this device than any other smartphone that I’ve ever used in my whole life! Kudos to RIM on this one. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this especially if it’s for business or work.
