What Different About BlackBerry Bold 9900?
Compared to popular smartphones such as the iOS-powered Apple iPhone 4s or the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S2, RIM’s BlackBerry Bold 9900 cannot compete when it comes to powerful hardware. However, Research In Motion’s high-end handsets seems to be able to keep up with the competition. If you’re wondering why this is, let’s find out why people like the Canadian-made handset.
First of all, the phone comes with the highly popular mobile instant messaging service called the BlackBerry Messenger or BBM for short. This mobile IM allows users to chat with friends who also have RIM handsets just like anybody would on personal computers. Since the phone comes with a QWERTY keyboard found below the phone’s display, it messaging has never been this easy.
Aside from the convenience of having a QWERTY keyboard and the ability to chat from wherever you may be, this mobile IM is also cost effective. Unlike text messaging, you will not get charged extra for going over your allotted monthly text messages. You can chat until you drop without getting penalized since chatting on the BBM is coursed through the phone’s 3G internet connection. Better yet, you will not be charged a single cent if you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi hotspot.
Since RIM has rolled out the BlackBerry OS version 7.1 update for the Bold 9900, there are number of new features that you will enjoy from the update. One of these features is having the luxury of using the phone as a mobile hotspot. This is ideal when there are no hotspots available in your area. All you have to do is make use of the phone’s 3G internet connection. It will allow you to provide internet connections to as much as 5 devices via W-Fi. This includes laptops, tablets, and other phones.
Another new feature of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is Wi-Fi Calling. This feature will allow you to enjoy more from calls without having to go over your monthly allotted minutes. Calls are coursed through the internet via a Wi-Fi connection. You can make use of public hotspots or your home wireless network. With option, you never have to worry about paying extra for going over your monthly minutes.
The update will also unlock more of the phone’s NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities. It will allow you to transfer files, invite friends to chat, share contact information, and permanently pair with NFC-enabled Bluetooth devices. All of this can be enjoyed by simply tapping one NFC-enabled to device against one another.
