Blackberry fans have always been impressed by the phones' QWERTY keyboard, push-email technology and BBM, an integrated messaging service. The Blackberry Bold Touch 9900 takes all of these features and improves on them with the addition of a touchscreen, a much faster processor and the inclusion of the latest operating system, Blackberry 7 OS.
This is undoubtedly one of the best Blackberry handsets on the market today, making its higher price tag entirely justifiable. It is a phone that is most likely to appeal to users who already use a Blackberry device, as this kind of handset is quite different from comparable Android devices. The screen is smaller compared to other touchscreen phones, although its functionality for texting and emailing is hard to surpass.
The phone features an impressive 5-megapixel camera and HD video recorder as well as a many apps for both work and entertainment. Other features include fully integrated GPS and Blackberry maps, full Wi-Fi connectivity and a very impressive battery life that means you don't have to charge it too often. The phone also has an MP3 player and comes with extendable storage slots so you can stock it up with a vast number of music and video files.
The 9900 is definitely one of the best Blackberry handsets available today and has a very professional look and feel thanks to its brushed metal and matt-black outer casing. It is a much more refined version of earlier models and is certainly designed to withstand the rigours of both business and personal use.
