RIM BlackBerry Bold 9900 review
RIM has packed in a new operating system, an improved browser and a responsive touchscreen into the slim chassis of the BlackBerry Bold 9900, but Julian Prokaza is still left wanting. Read our review to find out why.
Heavily integrated touchscreen support is one reason why BlackBerry OS 7 won't be available as an upgrade for older BlackBerry devices.
Heavily integrated touchscreen support is one reason why BlackBerry OS 7 won't be available as an upgrade for older BlackBerry devices, but the new operating system no doubt also needs the extra horsepower provided by the Bold 9900's Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset to run as smoothly as it does. Although only single-core, the 1.2GHz processor has double the clock speed of the processor in the Bold 9700, and the inclusion of hardware accelerated video and 24-bit colour graphics make the Bold feel 9900 look and feel very smooth in use.
BlackBerry OS 7 was expected to be RIM's first smartphone operating system to be based on the same QNX platform as its PlayBook tablet, but this turned out to be wishful thinking. In fact BlackBerry OS 7 feels more like BlackBerry OS 6.1, but RIM decided that its new features merited bigger billing and a brand new operating system version obviously won't hinder sales of the six new smartphones that use it.
