BlackBerry 9900

For BlackBerry users that have grown accustomed to traditional design and form of Research In Motion (RIM), a device called the BlackBerry Bold 9900 could be on the cards. The new phone with a touch screen will be powered by BlackBerry OS 6 and would have the traditional form factor.

The exciting thing is that the Blackberry Bold 9900 touchscreen comes with a small screen with a more traditional bold shape and an optical track pad. However, the touchscreen display running the BlackBerry 6 makes it a potential rival to the Palm Pre Plus.

The smartphone comes equipped with an upgraded 5 megapixel camera and will also be sporting 512MB of RAM. The camera is expected to support HD video recording in 720p so as to compete its rivals including the iPhone 4. Also, you will be provided with improved and long lasting battery.
