BlackBerry Bold 9900 Review

BlackBerry Bold 9900 ReviewResearch in Motion (RIM) have been getting some pretty heavy criticism recently and it is now time for another flagship device, the Bold 9900.  The previous Bold, the 9780, was just a rehash of the 9700 with a very few improved specs, so it is great to see that things have changed quite a lot with the 9900. Many users of the original Bold, the 9000, loved the device so much due to its size and it looks like RIM have listened to its customers as the new Bold 9900 is very similar with the added bonus of losing the track ball in favour of the track pad and some other great specs including a capacitive touch screen as well as a 1.2 GHz processor.

In North America, BlackBerry sales have been plummeting in with users opting for other platforms such as Android and iOS. That said, worldwide BlackBerry sales are far from doom and gloom. RIM shipped 13.2 million devices in the last quarter which is not bad at all.

There is no doubt that the 9900 will be a huge hit but the big question is will it bring back lost customers to the BlackBerry platform?

Read on to see the full review as well as my thoughts on whether the Bold 9900 can carry RIM through the next year or so as a flagship device.

BlackBerry Bold 9900 Unboxing Video

Screen Shot 2011-08-09 at 16.17.56

I am sure you saw our initial BlackBerry Bold 9900 demo video we did a couple of weeks ago. As you may have noticed, that device was not a retail one and it didn’t come with a box so an unboxing video was impossible. We have now had a retail one for a some time so we thought we had better show you what you get with the device.

The other good news with this second 9900 we have is that the ROM is carrier approved here in the UK, so what you see here on the handset is what you will get when it goes on sale very soon.

You can see the video below and the full review will be live shortly.
