BlackBerry Bold 9900 (Dakota) Overview

THE BLACKBERRY BOLD 9900 HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. WE ADVISE THE Q10 AS AN ALTERNATIVE. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the latest addition to RIM’s prolific BlackBerry Bold range. The thinnest BlackBerry manufactured to date, the Bold 9900 measures just 10.5mm in thickness but still offers the best feature set available in a BlackBerry smartphone.

A range of new features have been added to the Bold 9900, making it a great upgrade for the existing BB owner, or the perfect handset for the Blackberry first timer.

Firstly, it runs the new BlackBerry 7 OS, which has been enhanced to combine effectively with another new feature, the 2.8-inch, TFT capacitive touch screen. The 9900 is the first in the Bold range to feature a touch screen, which is bound to entice the BlackBerry user that also enjoys a front facing QWERTY keyboard.

The improvements do not end there. The Bold 9900 boasts a 1.2GHz processor, making it twice as powerful as its predecessor, the Bold 9780, and the most powerful BlackBerry smartphone to date. Near Field Communication (NFC) is also included, another first for a BlackBerry handset.

As well as the improvements that the BB 9900 brings to the Bold range, it also maintains the features that have made it so popular in the first place. Strong connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, as well as web-browsing on the go with 3G connectivity. GPS is also included and the new BlackBerry 7 OS is integrated with BlackBerry Maps for even better navigation support.

BlackBerry smartphones are not typically renowned for their camera capabilities, but the Bold 9900 may have what it takes to change this sentiment. It offers a 5MP camera with LED flash, a host of features and the ability to record video in 720p high definition. It also offers the media playback options that you would expect from a smartphone and features a 3.5mm headphone connection, as well as 8GB internal storage.
