Research In Motion has in recent times fortified their Blackberry range of handsets with the addition of the new Blackberry 9900 Bold Touch handset. Instead of following in the footsteps of models such as the Torch, the Bold 9900 has seen the brand return to its traditional Qwerty keypad phone that made them famous.
How does this new top of the range handset measure up against the Bold 9780, successor to the popular 9700 model? With the current smartphones performing a countless number of tasks, the processor speed has become a crucially important aspect of the modern tool.
The Blackberry 9900 Bold Touch is the most well incorporated Blackberry handset in this area, thanks to a powerful Snapdragon chipset. The Qualcomm Scorpion MSM 8655 processor runs at a fast one.2Ghz and despite being only a single core chip it adequately handles every task that is asked of it. The Bold 9780 offers a more average chip in the type of a 684Mhz processor. Despite being half the speed of the Bold 9900 Blackberry do manage to squeeze great performance from it but regrettably it basically cannot live up to the general power boasted by the newer tool. The handset is also fitted with a high definition and smart camera of 5 mega pixel that will give the users the opportunity to capture their happy moments into crystal clear photographs within a picture resolution of 2592×1944 pixels.
Users will also find various other modern camera features including LED flash, Geo-tagging, face detection, image stabilization. The camera is also capable of recording videos at 720p. Thus, the handset will be a treat for the photography enthusiasts. The Blackberry 9900 adorned with a beautiful display screen is sure to attract the attention of most of the people at its very first sight. The gadget is designed with excellent screen technology featuring a 2.8 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen that has the capacity to display 16M colors and a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Despite this figure sounding much lower than lots of smartphones we need to think about that the screen is also much smaller. To put things in to point of view the pixels per inch rating of the tool is 285 which is of the highest ratings available and only bettered by or other rings including the excellent iPhone four.
Although the display is a capacitive touchscreen Blackberry have opted to also include an optical trackpad for more exact navigation. This is useful for editing text documents and e mails. It is satisfying to see Blackberry return to their roots with this new model and what is generally noticeable is that the model is now well equipped to compete with the lots of powerful smartphones that are currently obtainable.
