This week BlackBerry has announced two new smartphones – the BlackBerry Bold ‘Touch’ 9900 and 9930. Essentially the only different between the two phones is the connectivity, with the 9930 being the international GSM counterpart. Aside from being the thinnest smartphone from BlackBerry to date and made with a stainless steel frame, the Bold Touch features both a full keyboard and a touch screen, as well as the new BlackBerry OS 7 platform.
Release dates and pricing have not been revealed yet, but both phones are expected to drop this summer.
Full specs and a further look after the jump.
