RIM’s strict dieting schedule has finally paid off and the slimmest BlackBerry handheld is finally here, officially. The BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 (aka the Bold Touch) are finally here, after a long awaited wait. These new smartphones by Research In Motion were officially unveiled at the flagging off of the BlackBerry World in Orlando. Packing a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen with a 287dpi pixel density, a 5mp camera and 8GB internal storage with microSD expansion, these two measure just 10.5mm, the thinnest BlackBerry around. Complete with a full QWERTY, a stainless steel circumference and a fiberglass back, the 9900 supports HSPA+ connectivity and 4G while the 9930, the world variant, supports dual-band CDMA and quad-band GSM.

The new Berries also feature RIM’s shiny new OS 7. Also, the legacy of the trackpad and the key arrangement from the Bold 3 carries on. The new BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 are sure to grab a load of attention in international smartphone markets.
