Research In Motion (NSDQ:RIMM) Ltd. (RIM) on Monday unveiled the BlackBerry Bold 9000, a new high-end smartphone the mobile device maker is billing as elegant and dramatic, that runs on third-generation (3G) networks.

With the Bold, BlackBerry is the latest device-maker to beat the Apple (NSDQ:AAPL) iPhone to the 3G punch. And last week, smartphone rival HTC unveiled the Touch Diamond, a touch-screen device similar to the iPhone which also runs on 3G networks. Researchers have predicted that Apple could have a 3G iPhone available this summer, but Apple has yet to announce firm plans to take the iPhone into the third-generation.

The Bold marks the first BlackBerry to support tri-band HSDPA 3G high-speed networks worldwide and integrates GPS and Wi-Fi along with recent multimedia capabilities Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM has made a staple in its devices while phasing out the clunky brick-style smartphones of just a few years ago. The tri-band HSDPA and quad-band EDGE support enable global roaming.

In a statement, RIM Co-CEO and president Mike Lazaridis said "the new BlackBerry Bold represents a tremendous step forward in business-grade smartphones and lives up to its name with incredible speed, power and functionality all wrapped in a beautiful and confident design."

RIM is banking on the BlackBerry Bold's sleek appearance to win over executives and field workers who've grown tired of sacrificing style for functionality. The Bold features a black exterior, a satin chrome finish frame and a leather-like backplate along with a newly designed full QWERTY keyboard. RIM is calling the BlackBerry Bold "a symbol of accomplishment and aspiration."

While pricing has not yet been revealed, RIM said the BlackBerry Bold will be available from most major wireless carriers come summer.

Along with support for tri-band HSDPA networks, the bold supports enterprise-grade 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi networks enabling use in the enterprise or in campuswide wireless LAN deployments, Wi-Fi hotspots or on wireless networks at home. RIM has added a new "Push Button Setup" for users to quickly connect to protected wireless networks that require a sign on process. And like many smartphone manufacturers, RIM has integrated GPS, which lets the BlackBerry Bold pinpoint its exact location and support applications like BlackBerry maps and other location-based services.

The BlackBerry Bold features a 624 MHz mobile processor to speed up email attachment downloading and support streaming video and faster Web browsing. The Bold also offers 128 MB of flash memory and 1 GB on-board storage memory. For additional storage, the device features a microSD/SDHC memory card slot accessible from a side door.

The Bold also comes standard with BlackBerry applications like phone, email, messaging, organizer and browser and works with a host of third-party mobile business and lifestyle applications. And to shake the stigma of not being able to work in applications and talk at the same time, the bold has been designed to enable users to talk on the phone while also sending and receiving email or accessing the Web. Users can also download many commonly used files, such as Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT) Word, Excel or PowerPoint and edit them on the handset using a pre-loaded DataViz Documents to Go suite.


Well, we expected it, but it's still exciting to get a press release for a new BlackBerry device right after the stroke of midnight. Yep, RIM has officially announced the release of the BlackBerry 9000 Bold. Expect the newest addition to the RIM family to appear sometime this 'summer' on AT&T, then T-Mobile. We've got a quick hit of details below and the full press release after the jump. Also, make sure to check out, which has now gone live.

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE The BlackBerry Bold smartphone's support for tri-band HSDPA and enterprise-grade Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g) networks and its next-generation 624 MHz mobile processor make short work of downloading email attachments, streaming video or rendering web pages. The BlackBerry Bold also includes 128 MB Flash memory plus 1 GB on-board storage memory, as well as and a microSD/SDHC memory card slot** that is conveniently accessible from a side door.

STUNNING DISPLAY The BlackBerry Bold smartphone comes with the most vivid and bold display ever introduced on a BlackBerry smartphone. Its half-VGA (480×320 resolution) color LCD is fused to the undersurface of the lens, making images leap out with stunning definition and clarity. Pictures are vibrant and razor sharp, while videos play smoothly and web pages, documents, presentations and messages snap with exceptional quality and contrast.

DESKTOP-STYLE WEB PAGES With its newly enhanced, high performance browser and high-resolution, ultra-bright display, the BlackBerry Bold smartphone gives users an on-the-go web browsing experience with desktop-style depiction. The trackball mimics a mouse, making it easy to navigate sites in "Page View" or "Column View" or to zoom in on specific parts of a web page, while various emulation settings allow users to choose between the full desktop-style HTML content and layout or the mobile version. Attachments can also now be downloaded from within the browser and there is support for watching streaming videos (RTSP - real-time streaming protocol).

RICH MULTIMEDIA While it is designed to meet the extensive requirements of the business professional during the day, the BlackBerry Bold smartphone also caters to the business person's consumer side during evenings and weekends. It features a 2 megapixel camera with video recording capability, built-in flash and 5x digital zoom. The enhanced media player can display pictures and slideshows quickly, play movies smoothly in full screen mode, and manage an entire music collection. Audio can be played over the handset's dual speakers in rich, stereo sound, and when using wired headphones or external speakers, the media player gives the user an equalizer with 11 preset filters - like "Lounge", "Jazz" and "Hip Hop" - that boost or soften audio ranges to create the perfect ambiance.

For managing music and video, the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager software includes Roxio® Media Manager for BlackBerry® as well as Roxio Photosuite® 9 LE, which makes it easy to enhance pictures and create photo albums on the computer. For users that manage their collection with iTunes®, the new BlackBerry® Media Sync application provides a simple way to sync iTunes digital music collections with the smartphone***. Support for High Speed USB 2.0 allows all files to be transferred quickly from a desktop computer to the BlackBerry Bold smartphone.

POWERFUL WI-FI & GPS For even broader high-speed network coverage, the BlackBerry Bold smartphone supports the 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi standards, ideal for use in enterprise or campus wireless LAN deployments, over Wi-Fi hotspots and on wireless home networks. A new "Push Button Setup" is included, making it faster for users to connect to protected wireless networks that require a sign on process.

Through its integrated GPS, the BlackBerry Bold smartphone can pinpoint its exact location, supporting applications like BlackBerry® Maps and other location-based applications or services. With its improved rendering capabilities, faster download speeds and ability to support simultaneous voice and data, the BlackBerry Bold smartphone even allows users to navigate while on a call.

FIRST CLASS PHONE The BlackBerry Bold smartphone features a new acoustic design that increases the size of the phone's audio sweet spot, improving listening quality and clarity. It also comes with numerous premium phone features including Speaker Independent Voice Recognition (SIVR) for Voice Activated Dialing (VAD), Bluetooth® 2.0, with support for hands-free headsets, stereo headsets, car kits (including car kits that adhere to the Bluetooth Remote SIM Access Profile) and other Bluetooth peripherals.

It also works with BlackBerry® Internet Service, which gives users access to up to 10 work or personal email accounts (including most popular ISP email accounts), and the BlackBerry® Unite! software for SOHO and home users.
