RIM unveiled two new touch BlackBerry Bold smartphones today. The BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones feature integrated BlackBerry keyboard with a high resolution, capacitive touch screen. The new Bold runs the new BlackBerry 7 operating system. Now BlackBerry fans can have both, a keyboard and a touchscreen.

"The new BlackBerry Bold smartphones and BlackBerry 7 OS are inspired by millions of customers around the world who want the ultimate combination of performance, functionality and style," said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO, Research In Motion. "These fully-loaded and beautifully crafted smartphones offer a highly refined user experience with fast performance, a brilliant touch screen and an outstanding typing experience."

Features of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 include 1.2GHz CPU, 4G/HSPA+ support, 2.8-inch VGA capacitive touchscreen, 8GB memory, 720p HD video recording, GPS, compass, accelerometer, Wifi 80211n and 1,230mAh removable battery. The new Bold is 10.2mm thin.

The new BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones are expected to be available from carriers around the world beginning this summer.

BlackBerry OS 7:
Building upon the Universal Search feature introduced in BlackBerry 6, BlackBerry 7 expands the capability to include voice-activated search. This new capability makes it even easier and more convenient to search for content on the smartphone or web. BlackBerry 7 also integrates BlackBerry Balance, which separates personal content from corporate content on the smartphone, giving users the freedom and flexibility to use the handset for personal email, Facebook(R), Twitter(R), multimedia, games and other apps while satisfying the very real need for corporate data to be highly secure and manageable.
BlackBerry Balance works in conjunction with BlackBerry(R) Enterprise Server 5.0.3, which provides a number of unique IT policy controls such as wiping only corporate data from the handset or blocking work related content and apps from being copied or forwarded to personal contacts. With BlackBerry 7 on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones, users will also get the full version of Docs To Go(R) with all "premium" features enabled out-of-the-box so that users can easily work with Word, Excel and PowerPoint files directly on the smartphone. Docs To Go also includes a native PDF viewer.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
