The handsets from RIM (Research In Motion) have been lagging behind many of the most popular phones from Apple and whole host of Android powered phones. Despite being behind, the Blackberry phones have always had a decent following. The newest model in a long line of handsets is the Bold Torch 9900.
At the heart of the Torch 9900 smartphone is a powerful 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor and 8GB’s of memory standard with the included SD card. The memory is upgradable up to 32GB’s with an optional 32MB SD card. Along with all of its power it features the latest Blackberry OS version 7.
This unlocked cell phone features a awesome 2.8” TFT capacitive touch screen which is a definite plus. It includes an easy to operate QWERTY keyboard which makes text messaging and app activation very easy to accomplish. The touch screen is very responsive to the slightest touch so you don’t need to worry about awkward delays when using it.
Pictures and Videos
RIM decided to pull out all of the stops when it comes to taking pictures and video clips. The built-in the 5 megapixel camera is capable of shooting ultra high quality pictures along with shooting 720p video. This makes it more than capable to snap pictures when the desire hits you or when some thing happens that you really want to capture it on video. RIM included several extra features like Auto Flash, Face detecting and image stabilizer to improve the picture and video capture experience.
Screen and Keypad
The 2.8” TFT touch screen is smaller than many of its competitors, but that does not take away from its high quality. It features a very impressive 640 x 480 pixels and a 285ppi density to give you an awesome look. It also features an accelerometer to give the ability to rotate the screen from landscape to portrait and back again just by rotating the device.
The keypad has received some improvements over previous Torch models, the keypad itself is wider thanks to the additional width of the device. The keys themselves have a contoured shape to give them a better feel. There are silver bands which separate the rows of keys to add an additional visual appeal.
