Whenever a particular device makes its way over to the FCC, it is surely something to sit up and take notice of. After all, that can mean only one thing – the device is extremely close to being released to the masses, and the same applies to the BlackBerry Bold 9900 as it has been spotted going through the hoops and tricks that the FCC requires it to perform before obtaining an approval.
Having being announced in early May this year, what makes the BlackBerry Bold 9900 so special is this will be the first traditional looking BlackBerry that will feature a touchscreen display. Of course, some might question the wisdom of utilizing 2.8″ of touchscreen area at 480 x 640 resolution, as somewhat similar efforts were made in the past before such as the HP iPaq 910c.
Expect the BlackBerry Bold 9900 to arrive on T-Mobile as it supports the carrier’s HSPA+ 4G network. Hopefully RIM has done a bang up job with the battery, since this model will also sport NFC (Near Field Communications) capability that might just help kick start the mobile payment revolution. Would this model save RIM from the doldrums?
