May 2, 2011, 7:30 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Research In Motion today announced a new series of Bold handsets, the 9900 and 9930, which marry a traditional BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard with a touch screen. The new Bolds are the first BlackBerries to include near-field communications (NFC) for mobile payments. They also include a magnetometer, which supports augmented reality applications. Both devices feature a 2.8-inch capacitive touch display with 640 x 480 pixels; 1.2GHz processor with 768MB of memory; 8GB of on-board memory and support for microSD cards; 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture; and accelerometer and proximity sensor. On the radio side, it comes in two configurations, one quad-band GSM/EDGE with tri-band HSPA+, and one dual-mode CDMA EVDO Rev. A, quad-band GSM/EDGE, and dual-band HSPA+. Both include Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. Both devices will be available later this summer. Price points weren't announced.
