BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 To Be Launched In India

Research In Motion (RIM) has not given up yet despite the recent setbacks. It is going to launch seven smartphones in India very soon.  The BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 smartphone, which is the thinnest smartphone from RIM yet, is one of them and getting ready for a launch in the second week of August. It seems that the company is trying to reassure that it is still in the game.

Powered by the latest version of its OS, BlackBerry OS 7, this smartphone comes with a 2.8" VGA capacitive touchscreen. It features enhanced voice-enabled Universal Search, to make handsfree search easier. Also present is Near Field Communication (NFC), although it is going to take some time for this technology to be implemented in our country. It sports a 1.2 GHz processor, 5 MP camera, 8 GB internal memory and supports up to 32 GB SDHC memory cards.

RIM plans to sell the device with a 1.5 year warranty at under Rs 32,500, which is still a stiff price to pay. It seems that the BB Bold Touch 9900 is a good candidate to grab a sizeable customer base, due to reports praising its quick and speedy touchscreen response. We will find out if this is really true when the phone is available off the shelves.
