Tell me later when your battery has depleted!!!! Then we'll talk! Also 9790 is only a glorified curve!!! BB9900 is a BOLD...!!!! Different courses for different horses!!!
It's like owning a BMW and comparing it with a Skoda!!! True both cars are German however, personally I wouldn't drive a Skoda despite it's come off the production line off VW!!! Get me drift!

How can performance o... moreDear Buddy, on BB 9900 you have 1.2 Ghz processor, you have touch screen, you have NFC and OH my God you have high resolution larger screen too and also Buddy you forgot to mention OS 7 against OS 5 on BB 8520. WoW, great my dear friend. But now do a little thinking...what application do you run on Great BB 9900 which cannot run smoothly on BB 8520...in other words what can BB 9900 do which BB 8520 cannot do??? And remember Pal, we are comparing a USD 600 BB 9900 with USD 150 BB 8520. Answer me my friend...I am listening my Buddy...I would like to add that I have already used BB 9790 for about an hour. Looks, speed, Beautiful auto focus camera and very user friendly size and form factor. I have used BB 9900 for 3 days. I can claim, BB 9790 wins in all respects. Yes, BB 9900 has high resolution and bigger screen but at the cost of battery life. Now if we talk in terms of technology, touch screen + keyboard can be found on USD 80 Sony Ericsson Aspen. 1 Ghz ++ processor can also be found on sub 200 and sub 250 Andoid phones. Lets not talk about specs and lets be practical on what benefit do you get and what you loose when you use them. Do the analysis, if at all your device enforces you to make compromises of any kind, if yes than that device is not yours and definitely not a winner when you are asked to pay a hefty price tag to own that device. Hope this clears your doubts my Buddy.

How can performance on the BB9790 be better???? BB9790 has lower processor!!!! BB9790 has LOWER screen pixels....Battery is neither better AND UNTIL it comes out you cannot say that BB9900 is worse off! The damn thing isn't even out yet! ALSO, you state that the 8520 does the same thing as 9900....your just a cheap skate!!! (Sorry to 8520) owners but this guy has NO ideal what he is talking about....8520 screen is NO way better than 9900....8520 does NOT have NFC....8520 does NOT have touch screen....8520 does NOT have 1.2 processor....8520 does NOT have half the features 9900 has!!!! Need I go on for more???? If your on here for trolling, please SOD off and grab a life so that genuine owners can feed back their opinions for people that do express a real interest on this model!
as I know there's no camera auto-focus in Blackberry Bold 9900, is that true?Does anyone could answer it?
Great phone, but I really don't understand why didn't they put in better battery
RIM has done a great job with BB 9790. It definitely wins all awards being slim, powerful and feature rich machine with great looks too. Cheers to all BB 9790 owners and feel sad for people who suffered injuries and pains during the launch of BB 9790 at pacific place in Jakarta. But come to think of it, BB 9900 owners must be furious for what happened to them. BB 9900 definitely looks and feel great in hand, but when it comes to real terms of performance and features it stands nowhere in competition against BB 9790. Its a total let down for BB 9900 owners who are left being a mere freelance Blackberry fans who paid heavy price to carry a logo and brick made by Blackberry in their hand morning till night and do advertising for Blackberry. Yes BB 9900 is a mere advertising gadget made by Blackberry and nothing else as it suffers all shortcomings and have carried a hefty price tag for nothhing but looks and feel. Remember BB 8520, it can do what BB 9900 can do but with the better battery life. Isn't it friends?
lufi, 26 Nov 2011mine is really cool..and im so so inlove ...lot's of people having a battery problem
I love my Bold 9900! Its stylish, sassy and very dependable...Battery is okay...just dont use your internet a lot. It will definitely not give you a good performance...touch screen feature is cool and one touch free...I guess it comes with the expensive price..Very Good Buy!
the App world doesn't work in my country is there any other way to download apps for my bold 9900? please help!
sam1997, 25 Nov 2011but does the battery life stand at least for like 48 hrs..??Yep mine does! Despite what most complain about the battery....not sure about others but for at least the very first 3 charges, I usually drain the battery completely and charge up etc...this will give the maximum performance so looking after your battery in the first place gives you more return in the future! Hope this helps.
It looks good (as usually BlackBerry does) but... GPSP doesn't work as good as google maps on android, enterprise activation is still very simple, it doesn't offer to many options, the performance is sometimes slow, it freezes (even that it is new...) BlackBerry must change completly it OS...

Can you explain what is document viewer? Is this for microsoft. thanks
absolutely the best blackberry device when it comes to the performance, never seen the likes of it since bold 9780. however battery life is not as good as bold 9780. this has got to do with a faster processor as well as a better screen resolution. still a very practical and good phone. I PHONE 4S is nowhere near blackberry when it comes to usage
