New BlackBerry Bold now on sale

On-line electronic retail giant Amazon UK has just opened up the pre-ordering of the Research In Motion BlackBerry Bold 9900, with a cost attached of £549.99 SIM free and unlocked.

Canadian mobile phone manufacturer Research In Motion launched the handset back in May, with a design that is similar to the original Bold along with being their thinnest and fastest handset in their arsenal to date.

RIM’s Bold 9900 arrives with a traditional RIM keyboard, a touch screen, the new BlackBerry 7 OS and the look of the first ever Bold device from 2008.

BlackBerry Bold 9900 tips up with a 2.8-inch 640x480 287 dpi capacitive touch screen display, a full QWERTY keyboard, with an optical trackpad, whilst running from a 1.2 GHz processor, with 8GB of on-board memory, built in NFC technology and a 5megapixel camera that supports 720p HD video recording.

Recent Bolds have had more of a smaller BlackBerry Curve design, where the Bold 9900 is a call back to the original device and one that One Mobile Ring believes was very popular and will be once more.

Vodafone and Three have announced they will be carrying the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 too, when the phone arrives at the end of the summer months.
