Sprint has announced two new BlackBerry smartphones: the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and BlackBerry Torch 9850. Both are world phone capable and are powered by a 1.2GHz processor running the next-generation BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 7. Browsing on these phones is supposed to be 40 percent faster than BlackBerry 6 based smartphones and up to 100 percent faster than BlackBerry based smartphones.
The BlackBerry Bold 9930 smartphone is the thinnest BlackBerry smartphone ever. At 10.5mm thick, it features a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen display, the widest QWERTY keyboard available on a BlackBerry smartphone and a trackpad for easy navigation.
The BlackBerry Torch 9850 smartphone will be the first full-touch BlackBerry smartphone from Sprint. It features a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, the largest ever on a BlackBerry smartphone, and trackpad for easy navigation.
No word on pricing yet, but these phones will be available this fall. What do you think, is Blackberry still in the game? Or will is it destined to go the way of Palm/HP?
