Blackberry Bold 9900 release is looming

I want this phone… I don’t know why, I just do. I currently have an iPhone 4 and cannot stand it sometimes… I mean come on, let me have push mail without completely draining my battery by 2pm, I go out a lot, I need my phone to be working, not running around trying to find a stupid plug-in in the middle of town, never mind the adapters needed to do so… apparently at double the speed, the Bold 9900 uses 1/3rd less power! Yes the battery is a little smaller, but at 1/3rd the power consumption the general consensus says it will last much much longer!

It also offers a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, NFC technology for mobile payments, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, 8GB of internal memory, and more. The Bold 9900 is a quad-band GSM device with compatibility with HSPA+ networks, while the Bold 9930 is the dual-mode version with both CDMA and GSM support.

Not only will the 9900 be the thinnest BlackBerry to date, measuring in at 10.5 millimeters thick, but the new hardware should also make it one of the most powerful. The new 1.2GHz processor runs at nearly double the clock speed of the Bold 9780, and system memory will be expanded up to 768MB. We’ll just have to wait a little longer to finally get our chance to pick up the 9900 and check out the new BlackBerry OS 7.

Check out the official BlackBerry 9900 webpage and see some of its awesome new features.
