T-Mobile has got a new BlackBerry on its shelves. It is called the BlackBerry Bold 9900, and it is the first BlackBerry to have 4G on the T-Mobile network, according to the press release. Other networks such as Rogers, Telus, and Verizon Wireless already have the phone. There is a catch as well, at least temporarily. The phone is only available to T-Mobile business customers until August 31st.
For those who are business customers, what will the device cost? According to TmoNews, the phone will set you back three hundred US dollars, after a 50 dollar rebate. What does one get for the price? The BlackBerry Bold 9900 comes with a 1.2 GHz single-core processor with BlackBerry OS 7, the latest version of the OS. In addition, the device comes with a 2.8 inch touchscreen, capable of 640x480 resolution. Liquid Graphics technology powers the touchscreen, according to the press release, and provides 24-bit high resolution graphics. The BlackBerry Bold 9900 comes with 8 GB of internal memory packed inside, and the 5-megapixel camera is capable of 720p video capture. GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth are standard in the device.
The device is the first BlackBerry to boast the MobileLife Family Organizer from T-Mobile, which allows you to keep track of basic family stuff (grocery lists, appointments, etc.). For BlackBerry loyalists this may be a great phone, but it may not compete very well against Android devices and the iPhone, considering the specs on this BlackBerry are quite unimpressive.
