Research In Motion launches the BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone in New Zealand
Posted on 11-Oct-2011 16:25. | Tags Filed under: News.

Research in Motion today announced the official launch of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 in New Zealand. Vodafone is the first New Zealand operator to offer the new BlackBerry smartphone, available through Vodafone retail, online and other sales channels from today. Telecom New Zealand is expected to launch the BlackBerry Bold 9900 in the coming months.

“Consumers should get really excited about the launch of the BlackBerry Bold 9900. It features some great enhancements, entertainment features and apps which combine with trusted BlackBerry security and best-in-class email to create the perfect smartphone for work and play,” said Adele Beachley, Managing Director New Zealand, Research In Motion.

The evolution of the BlackBerry Bold is a sleeker, slimmer take of the iconic design, paired with the BlackBerry standard of best-in-class security, communications and business applications. Retaining the market-leading keyboard, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 also includes a high resolution touch screen that gives users the ideal medium for both typing emails and browsing the internet. A modern brushed-steel frame encases a toughened-glass body, which slims the Bold 9900 down to just 10.5mm, keeps up in the fashion stakes while maintaining a compact size for on-the-go use.

The new devices come with BlackBerry Messenger 6 (BBM 6) which provides support for ‘BBM connected’ apps to integrate the popular functionality of the BBM service and offer users the ability to interact with their friends from within the apps themselves. For example, with a BBM connected game app, users can invite their BBM friends to join them in a game and chat with one another in the middle of the game – without ever leaving the game app, all in real time.

Built on the BlackBerry 7 Operating System (OS) and driven by a powerful 1.2 GHz processor, the new smartphone delivers a fast user experience, as content comes to life through a smooth interface powered by Liquid Graphics.

Vodafone New Zealand recently announced that BlackBerry smartphones are now available on Vodafone Smart plans, giving customers access to BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) without any additional bolt-on fee.
