I’ve been noticing a lot of stories popping up about Blackberry’s device that should help businesses keep away from iPhones. Here is an insert with some information and specs on the new phone.
RIM is expected to announce details of the iPhone-esque BlackBerry 9800 next week. Don’t hold your breath that for the BlackBerry smartphone to blow the iPhone or Android smartphones out of the water, but as long as the device can hold its own it should be a winner for RIM.
The phone will be having a 3 inch display touch screen with 360 x 480 pixels having 65K colors, 5 megapixel camera with Liquid lens technology, Touch sensitive optical track pad, HSDPA and GSM facility, 3.5 mm audio jack, micro SD slot that can handle up to 16 GB of files, GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth, microUSB v2.0 and Li-Ion 1050 mAh battery. It also includes Wi-Fi 802.11n, a 4GB on board storage for more space for downloaded files, 512 MB RAM. It also has a media player, pod cast apps and Upgraded Web kit browser that is really cool and entertaining stuff that fits any user, ensuring happy and comfortable use.
Currently I have been using my Bold 9700 with a hybrid operating system, some of OS 5 and some of OS 6. I must say that there are some key benefits to OS 6.
