RIM introduces thinnest BB bold smartphones


Blackberry users can further wait for a while, in the interim rejoicing on the news of RIM coming up with a couple of new smartphone versions. Research In Motion (RIM) on Monday unveiled two new BlackBerry Bold smart phones at its annual BlackBerry World conference. The Canadian company also unveiled its new BlackBerry 7 operating system.

New devices – BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 – are said to be the thinnest and most powerful BlackBerry smartphones to this date. The two handsets feature the BlackBerry keyboard as well as a touch screen. These will be the last smartphones to run on the old operating system before the new BlackBerry 7 operating system comes into the picture.

The two versions are powered by a 1.2 GHz processor and they also feature a sleek design that integrates the BlackBerry keyboard with a high resolution seven-centimetre touch screen.

“The new BlackBerry Bold smartphones and BlackBerry 7 operating system are inspired by millions of customers around the world who want the ultimate combination of performance, functionality and style,” RIM president and co-CEO Mike Lazaridis said.

“These fully-loaded and beautifully-crafted smartphones offer a highly refined user experience with blazingly fast performance, a brilliant touch screen and an outstanding typing experience,” he added.
