In addition to our hands-on video we have a simple collection of BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 photos for your viewing pleasure. This is one sweet device and the pictures don't do it justice - you really do have to see it live and up close. This is RIM's thinnest device to date and with its all-around stainless steel bezel, full QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen, the BlackBerry Bold Touch is definitely one of the best looking devices as well. If you haven't already, check out all of our BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 coverage for more on RIM's latest Bold.

I'm kind of pissed there won't be a 2nd convienence key

supermanjamil

Totally agree. The left key is my messages button. It's instinct my uniform set up for all Blackberries I set up too. Now the camera button will have to be it...

mssca

I don't know why they did this... I have to get rid of the camera key and replace with my phonebook because now I my phonebook on the other side.

On the other hand Tray icon system allow us to quickly jump into the media panel and hit camera. Many people here on Crackberry hate the Tray system that came out in OS6, but I love it and I think it save time for me, even though some people find it it takes time to find programs.

Well, at least they added an extra button on the right...

Really more like disappointed. I like the right key for camera and I set the left for contacts.

I miss the Quick Access to QuickLaunch, although I hope this is where the Touch Screen Kicks in so it won't be missed that much.

Why would you want to hit a physical button on the side of the device when you can just touch that icon on a high-res screen?? Step into the 21st century guys, convenience keys are just not necessary anymore other than volume controls or putting the display to sleep. Look at the playbook for example- gestures are the new convenience!

mckillio

Just use the keyboard shortcuts.

Kiddo2050

Right on, people that want convenience keys don't understand that they now have a touch screen. Put whatever you want in the top of the tray and just touch it. One button is needed for the camera, that's it.

Never even think about second CK on my Torch.

And I miss my convenience key! I used to use it for screen capture so me having a touchscreen doesn't replace the need for one! I don't understand why they removed it, stupid idea in my opinion.

I CAN'T WAIT !! :D Once this comes out, I'm throwing my Tour at a wall !!

dlg20

bond25

tim tunes

MCsL4L

Yesss!!!! I cant wait!!! Thank you tmobile!!!!

jsn204

bah, the more i see it, the more i want it
i wish i could just go into a self induced coma and be waked up on release date :(

djdazm

Stupid question time.

Since the OS6.1/7 icons have no text labels now how will we identify our multiple email inboxes?

/endcuriosity

BBThemes

in exactly the same way as you do nowadays for non touch os6 devices, highlight that icon and text appears in the slider where all/frequent/media sits

jpicky86

This needs to come out now!

MissJennell#IM

I need this phone! Not just want. It's a definite need!!

thecanuckgirl

I agree with MissJennell - this is a need!

kelton

what will this phone do that a 9650 bold can't do? Is it just a bit faster? Talk to me... it's an honest question. Let me have it.

skyboxer

Just off the top of my head, it can record HD video. Also will have an augmented reality browser which I havent decided if it will be really useful or just a cool gimmick. There is the NFC thing which I dont see myself using much. And a compass.

Everything else it just does faster, or should at nearly twice the clock speed.

SmashBerry

better camera, much much faster processor, Newer,faster OS, touch screen, bigger size(in my opinion is better, cant stand the small size of the 9700) PAUSE! Just the faster processor alone means better and faster web browsing and better viewing of videos on youtube and stuff. Hopefully.

burkey1973

Don't tell her but I think this phone is sexier than my wife..

RulerD

My 8900 broke in December i went and bought the first BB I could find at a pawn shop ( an 8530) because there was no way I was going to extend my contract before this phone drops. My contract with TMo is up at the end of May. Whoever gets this first ATT or TMo, I am there!!!

jome

TMo is getting the 9900, but correct me if I'm wrong - ATT is getting the 9930? I hope so!

gordongr

from what ive seen the 9900 is gsm for ATT & T-Mobile & the 9930 is cdma for Sprint/Verizon

SmashBerry

ATT and Tmo will be getting the 9900. Sprint and Verizon will be getting the 9930

IndePanda

Now this is a BlackBerry you can be proud of. I like it!

shlee

i must have this machine

SmoothG

Will the CDMA version be a world phone? Please tell me it will!!

SmashBerry

From what I read the 9930(CDMA version) will be the Global Version. So yeah I think your good to go.

SmashBerry

for the people saying theres no second convenience key. ummm i think i see a 3rd button where the volume rockers are. could that be the other convenience key? Maybe they just simply moved it to the other side. DUH!!!! Either way this device is so sexy. Never thought i'd say that about a phone but it is. The metallic band around the phone is very iphone4-ish but i like it. it gives it a nice clean look. Ive been waiting for this phone for about a year now. I'm THIRST!!!!!

isprobi

This is nice for a traditional form factor BB. But I wish they would bring back the great stereo speakers my Bold 9000 had. I need a loud phone and they seem to be going cheaper and cheaper on the speakers. Also I hope they show a Torch 2 our Storm 3 type device with a larger screen.

facegirl

I presently have th 9700 and I love it, I skipped the Torch.........The Torch didn't catch my attention, but on the other hand, this baby (9900) is fasinating.....I must have one of these......Only disappointment so far is the side convenience key......

hearture36

If only everyone didn't have a love affair for Apple.

jtash

How about some shots of the 9930 and 9900 with the back and battery removed?

mavricxx

Please bring the BB Touch to T-Mo with compatability on all bands for AT&T and T-Mo!

Bahrutile

My Bold 9000 is on its last leg, death rattle even, i hope i can coast till this phone comes out...

Kiddo2050

Who makes this? I mean what company in China or Taiwan or wherever makes this? They've done an excellent job.

Kiddo2050

Doesn anyone know how we can remove the AT&T labeling that is going to go on the bottom of th phone? Seriously hate those phone companies from ruining the look of the product. I don't think AT&T labels the iPhone, I wish other producers would man up and tell them to F-off. This is the one good thing that comes from S. blow Jobs being a prick.

pemainbaru

When Qwerty meet Touch = Blackberry Love.

We love it.

Gamesdmc3

Sexy from all angles,i love these close up pics

Thumbless

First leaks on this phone were in 2009, and after this conference we STILL won't have release dates and pricing?!? C'mon RIM.

itstrentmichael

I can't wait till this comes to AT&T.

syiedn

I'm new to blackberrry's...are the 9900 and 9930 different phones and if so whats going to be the difference...or are they the same phone?

Jimmy E.A.

@syiedn...the 9900device is GSM-related(AT&T/TMob will be doin' the shipment) while the 9930device is CDMA-bound(Verizon/Sprint)
@permainbaru...now, thatz just succintly put there...wot i call; "Excellence @itz Best"...BRAVO RIM!!! ;)
