Thursday, 04 August 2011 14:20
In what will be a bold move, BlackBerry manufacturer Research In Motion (RIM) has announced that it is planning to release a slew of new smartphones.
The planned roll-out, which the company says will be its largest global launch ever, will see a release of five new handsets: two new BlackBerry Bold models and three new BlackBerry Torch editions. The handsets will all be kitted out with the manufacturer’s next-generation, performance driven BlackBerry 7 OS.
This latest and greatest OS will be coupled with a next gen BlackBerry browser and an improved WebKit browser engine, which will provide users with a significantly faster and more fluid mobile Web browsing experience. This new browser boasts optimised zooming and panning and optimised HTML 5 performance for great video and gaming experiences.
All these enhancements, along with better hardware components, will lead to browsing results that are 40% faster than phones using BlackBerry 6 and up to 100% faster than those using BlackBerry 5.
At 10.5mm, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the thinnest BlackBerry smartphone yet. It boasts a high performance keyboard and touch display. Along with the new 9930, the new Bold 9900 is also the first of BlackBerry’s phones with built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), which will enable to users to easily, wirelessly pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags.
Those who carry a torch for the Torch will be happy to hear that, while retaining all the features and functions that they’ve come to love, the all-touch BlackBerry Torch 9850 and 9860 smartphones will flaunt a stylish new design and a spectacular 3.7 inch display, optimised to display Web pages, photos, videos and games.
In addition to the new BlackBerry 7 OS, each of the new handsets will contain a 1.2 GHz processor, HD video recording, 24-bit high resolution graphics, and advanced sensors to deliver the ultimate in communications, multimedia and productivity.
The new line-up should become available later this month.
