Local mobile dealer Mahesh Telecom made it known on its Twitter account yesterday that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 has officially arrived in India. With physical stock coming in less than a few days and a price tag of Rs. 31290 (approx. $700 USD), this is the first time in RIM's history that a handset is launched in India before the United States. Soon the Indian population will have the pleasure to experience Liquid Graphics on a high resolution 2.8" display, a quick processor clocked at 1.2Ghz and 768MB of RAM, to ensure that the new BlackBerry 7 operating system as well as your favorite apps will have plenty of space to live in.
As India is both home to a GSM and CDMA community, the equivalent sister model to the BlackBerry Bold 9900, the Bold 9930, is also set to release by local carriers later this year. This is certainly exciting news and further proof of RIM's commitment to thrive in today's world not only home, but on a global scale.
