They could get round the radio problem by doing what they did with s/e w900i and incorporate one in the headfone piece..Rim is a canadian make i wonder if they dont allow video calls and therefore dont put in a secondary camera.
This is definitely a perfect upgrade from my BB Bold9000. Better CPU, better memory, bigger display, better resolution, slimmer and a track pad. NFC is the future and am glad BB has embraced the cutting edge technology in this package. I only wish they factored in a secondary front camera and maybe RDS radio feature. I also think they should have maintained the black leather look on the back cover similar to the Bold9000.
The plastic back cover looks cheap.
Last but not least, i believe everyone wants better battery life irrespective of whatever handset you have. #JustSaying
dejavooo, 14 Jun 2011Now the release date should also be changed on GSM Arena... Why
oh my goodness! my next BlackBerry! hate the "touch" screen though :-(
people are already seeling it... O_o
It is a gorgeous handset. does anyone now the exact release date?? i must have this phone!!
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2011this phone have the band 850mhz in 3G?I am trying to find out 3g at 850MHz,,dont forget the 9930 is this BB9900 but for American market..
I wish i knew when it is out.
Arak, 09 Jun 2011Brynn , thank you for your reply , but the question is not the 2 parts of the business and the... moreI wonder if you can use BB via wifi to help answer your question .The thing is BB use the servers for your security so if they let go and did what all other smartfones do the security of BB will be breached..Its their killer app i suppose..
I was a bit hasty in my last opinion but it was more of a rant about BB delaying their new Baby.I have got a 9105 now and still saving for this or E6 or s/e xperia pro..
Xperia pro now delayed,,huh,
E6 has not auto-focus and i use this a lot so kidding my self really..
BB 9900 it is still then.I just wish it was out NOW..
If its been delayed anyway why dont they put a front facing cam in at say VGA resolution..The other FM radio query is just not on..It costs nothing to purchase an fm chip these days..With face to face video available since 2002 and Apple pushing it plus faster and faster networks more folk will start to use the front camera..
Arrggghh every smartfone has its quirks but this is just not on for a 2011 smartfone.Still going to buy it tho cause i can use web radio and dont use video calls.I have heard its been delayed,,COME ON RIM YOUR BEHIND ALREADY DONT GET EVEN FURTHER BEHIND>??
k, 09 Jun 2011dude thats why BB is different and known as the best secure phone. this is the same reason why... moreI would agree with you. BB is a highly professional handset, meant only and only for professionals. Off course, they can introduce new features like radio and front camera, but that would make BB an entertainment gadget rather than a professional one.
Anyways, I have found BB 9900's features amazing and I would love to have one, once available.
this is a worthy upgrade to my 9700 rather than 9780.
yep, front cam & fm radio although not really needed, would've been good additions, especially for blackberry to attract new customers.
my only concern is the battery specs. why did they downgrade it from previous bold?
larger screen, heavier processor will consume more power.
Blackberry phones are famous for its' great battery life, so i really hope this will be not be a major drawback as i hate to charge it as frequent as my sgs II.
i wouldn't even want to talk about the delay, depressing...
