Press Release 

Research In Motion Launches BlackBerry Bold 9790 Smartphone in Pure White with BlackBerry OS 7.1 in Hong Kong

Hong Kong, August 16, 2012 - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today launched the BlackBerry® BoldTM 9790 smartphone in Pure White. Featuring the latest BlackBerry® 7 OS (7.1), the new smartphone is available today from authorized partners in Hong Kong.

True to the BlackBerry Bold brand, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 smartphone is powerful, full-featured and built with premium materials and finishes. It combines a high-resolution and highly responsive touch display with a highly tactile keyboard and a precise optical trackpad, but comes in a narrow design that is easy to carry and exceptionally comfortable to hold.

With the new BlackBerry 7.1 OS, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 delivers fast, smooth performance for browsing the web, running apps, working with documents, and enjoying multimedia. It includes 8GB of onboard memory and an expandable memory card slot that supports up to 32GB of additional storage.

Life Is Better Shared
With BlackBerry 7.1 OS, BlackBerry Bold 9790 customers can experience new ways to share information and content. For example, the OS incorporates a new feature called BlackBerry® Tag, which can change the way customers share information and content. By simply tapping the NFC enabled BlackBerry Bold 9790 smartphone against another NFC enabled BlackBerry smartphone, customers can instantly invite a friend to BlackBerry® Messenger (BBMTM), or exchange contact information, documents, URLs, photos, and other multimedia content. They can also pair their BlackBerry smartphone with an NFC enabled Bluetooth® device.

A new Wireless Media Server feature has been added, allowing customers to wirelessly connect the BlackBerry Bold 9790 smartphone to a game console, desktop or laptop computer in order to share music, movies, and pictures with a room full of friends*. Now special moments captured by a BlackBerry Bold 9790 customer can be played back on the big screen for everyone to enjoy.

Enhanced Productivity
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 can also boost a customer's productivity from virtually anywhere with Mobile Hotspot, which allows them to share their cellular connection with up to 5 Wi-Fi®-enabled devices, including laptops and tablets.

In addition, the newly added Battery Saving Mode feature can allow customers to extend the battery life of their BlackBerry Bold 9790 when it is most needed. The feature gives customers the option of having their smartphone settings - such as the display's brightness level, backlight, and Mobile Hotspot feature - automatically adjusted when the battery power reaches a pre-defined level.

Download BlackBerry 7.1 OS Now
The BlackBerry 7.1 OS is also available for download for customers with the BlackBerry® BoldTM 9900 and BlackBerry® TorchTM 9860. Customers can update the OS by visiting http://hk.blackberry.com/update/ (Chinese only), or using the BlackBerry® Desktop Software.
