Research In Motion (RIM) has revealed its brand new BlackBerry Bold 9780, the first Bold smartphone to come with the new BlackBerry 6 operating system.
"We are very excited to introduce the BlackBerry Bold 9780 featuring the new BlackBerry 6 operating system," said Carlo Chiarello, vice president, Product Management at RIM. "This new model builds on the highly refined mobile experience that BlackBerry Bold users already know and love and delivers a wide range of enhancements including a rich new user interface, a fast and powerful WebKit-based browser, broadly improved communications and multimedia capabilities, an incredibly useful Universal Search feature and a high quality 5MP camera."
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a compact smartphone that comes with a 5MP camera with auto focus, flash and video recording. The phone also supports 3G networks around the world, includes Wi-Fi with support for carrier supported Wi-Fi calling (UMA where available) and GPS for location-based applications and geo-tagging. It has a 512 MB Flash memory and an expandable memory card slot that supports up to 32 GB of additional storage.
The new BlackBerry 6 operating system integrates a new WebKit-based browser for quick access to web pages. The browser includes tabs for accessing multiple sites simultaneously and provides a zoom feature that auto-wraps text in a column while maintaining the placement of a page's elements.
The operating system is perfect for social networking addicts with integrated access to BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and various instant messaging applications on the BlackBerry Bold 9780 smartphone.
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 smartphone will be available from various carriers around the world in November.
