The QWERTY keyboard on this device is awesome and one of the other feature of this phone is that it is running on the latest BlackBerry OS 7. It has a great camera and an amazing slim body design. This is the thinnest BlackBerry Bold ever made by company. I think that made someone more interesting ah? Well, there are lot more to talk about. Let’s get started;
BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 and 9930 have same specifications and design. Only thing that is different is that the operating network. BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 is a GSM phone and 9930 is a CDMA/GSM variant of the same.
BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, 9930 : Design
The latest BlackBerry Bold is almost similar to the Bold 9700 in size and larger than the previous bold which is Bold 9780. The design is so powerful, business and solid. And about the keyboard, you can imagine the quality of keyboard in a BlackBerry ah. The keyboards has nice contour and kind of thicker towards a corner which really makes the finger fit into the exact key what we are looking for.
The device has a 2.8” inch Capacitive touch screen with 640 x 480 pixels resolution. You can see the usual keys in the front which is integrated as a part of the display. The buttons are not touch sensitive they are physical keys which we need to press. It also has an optical trackpad which will also act like menu button. There is a notification light, proximity sensor, accelerometer on the top of the device. The metallic bezel on the side really made the bold more elegant in display. The Bold Touch 9900, 9930 weights only 130g and is only available in black colour.

The device is loaded with the latest OS, BlackBerry OS 7. It has 1.2GHz processor, 768MB RAM and 8GB internal memory which is expandable upto 32GB.
The phone is powered by a 1230mAh battery, which i think is one of the flaw of this device. It could have been 1500mAh instead. I didn’t expect this type of lower mAh battery in such a premium business device. Anyway it depends upon the usage.
