BlackBerry Bold 9900 set to land late August
The Blackberry Bold 9900 looks set to arrive on T-Mobile's network on August 31. This would be in line with its recent appearance at the FCC, which aligned with a late August release. A new leak of some T-Mobile marketing material all but confirms the impending arrival of the RIM's next-generation business-oriented smartphone.
When it lands, the Bold 9900 is set to feature "the best keypad" that RIM says it has ever produced that incorporates the concave style key surfaces found on the existing Bold line-up. It will also sport a fast 1.2GHz processor as well as a GPU to take full advantage of the new, more fluid navigation experience in the new OS. [via Crackberry]
