For the hardcore Blackberry fans out there, this is definitely a great news. The Blackberry 9900 is finally here, and this is a model that signifies Blackberry’s commitment in the battle of smart phones.
The 9900 is a beautiful device, and most of all, the hardware is now up to date with the best out there, while the previous models have sometimes been criticized as a little dated, there is no such problem at all with the 9900.
Here’s the short specification for this new BB:
- 1.2 GHz processor
- 768 MB RAM, 8 GB eMMC
- up to 32 GB uSD memory card
- 640 x 480 2.8″ high res display
- 5MP camera capable of 720p HD video capture
- Tranmissive TFT LCD (touch screen)
- QWERTY keyboard (35 keys)
- 6.3 hours talk time, or 12.8 days standby
- Blackberry 7 OS
Of course, within every Blackberry is that unbeatable email system and BBM, not to mention a host of other applications you can now get via their app store. I have experience using other platforms but frankly speaking, Blackberry still does email better than anything else, it is fast, simple, and very very efficient.
BBM too is still the best chat client there is, very stingy in data usage, and seemingly never ever had downtimes. It is as reliable as you can get (even better than SMS I think).
The 9900 is now in Malaysia and you can get it with the widest network coverage in the country under Celcom – for as low as RM 1,288.

I used to have the Blackberry 9700 and always thought that it’d be a perfect phone if only the processor was a bit faster, has a better camera, and if it comes with a touch screen. The 9900 seems to answer that call and then some.
