Research In Motion (RIM) has launched today its two new BlackBerry smartphones, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 both with 1.2GHz processor, high-resolution touchscreen and with the new Blackberry 7 OS that provides better graphics than previous BlackBerry operating system.
The two smartphones are stretched-out BlackBerry Bold with a 2.8-inch, 640-by-480 touchscreen that is very rich and dense screen for its small size. The two phones run 1.2GHz Qualcomm processors and have 8GB of storage, 5-megapixel cameras with 720p HD video recording, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Both phones also have built-in NFC, a technology that enables phones to be used as mobile wallets, which may have applications in businesses.
On the other hand, the new BlackBerry 7 OS has “liquid graphics” ability, which according to RIM’s press release, offers 60 frames per second performance with instant UI action/response. And aside from being a new operating system, BlackBerry 7 is an upgrade to its existing BlackBerry 6 OS and is designed to power the platform of the two new BlackBerry Bold smartphones adding better graphics capabilities and a faster browser.
