The brand new BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 is a 1.2GHz smartphone (RIM’s “thinnest yet”) that runs Blackberry OS 7 and includes NFC connectivity and a touchscreen interface.
This phone also runs BlackBerry 7 (aka BlackBerry OS 6.1) including a new product called Balance that allows for remote wiping and full app control that prevents users from moving, for example, text from an email to a web-app. It separates, as RIM says, “personal content from corporate content.” The Bold supports BlackBerry ID, as well, a single-sign-on system to bring up all of your logins at once using a single password.
The phone will be available this summer. We have a quick hands on right here.
