A couple of weeks ago we announced that the much-anticipated BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone had unfortunately suffered a bit of a delay, with consumers now having to wait until September for its arrival. However, it looks like UK residents may see the handset launched before then.
According to a recent article by Carly Page over at somobile.co.uk, Three UK has recently listed the BlackBerry Bold 9900 on its ‘Coming Soon’ page, with the release date down as sometime in August. Information on a price has yet to be announced, but it is expected to launch on Three’s One Plan.
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 – also known as the Bold Touch – is the first Research in Motion (RIM) handset to sport both a portrait QWERTY keyboard and a capacitive touch screen. The 2.8-inch screen will also be the first to showcase RIM’s new BlackBerry OS 7, which promises a boosted web browser and a revamped UI.
For those that may need reminding of the specs, the Blackberry Bold 9900 smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and comes with HSDPA and Wi-Fi speeds, a 5-megapixel rear camera with 720p HD video recording, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and built-in NFC technology.
