Difference Between Blackberry Bold 9000 and Bold 9900 Touch Screen

Blackberry Bold 9000 vs Bold 9900 Touch Screen

The Blackberry Bold 9900 Touch Screen is more than just an evolutionary step in the Bold series. It represents a huge leap, which is very atypical of RIM. The main difference between the Bold 9000 and Bold 9900 is what version of the Blackberry OS they are using. The older Bold 9000 uses the familiar version 6 while the Bold 9900 uses the revamped version 7. Most of the differences between the Bold 9000 and Bold 9900 that follows is a consequence of or a result of this fact.

To start with, the Bold 9900 has a touch sensitive display while the Bold 9000 doesn’t. There are older Blackberry phones that already featured touch sensitive displays, but the Bold 9900 is among the first to have this feature inherent with the operating system. This makes the overall experience more seamless than with other models.

One requirement of the new operating is better hardware because the 600Mhz processor and a mere 128MB of RAM, which is typical of most Blackberries and is installed in the Bold 9000 is not good enough to run the OS flawlessly. The Bold 9900 is equipped with a 1.2Ghz processor and 768MB of RAM, although may still be behind what other smartphones are packing, is a great leap from its predecessors.

The Bold 9900 also brings its camera into the bare minimum of what you’d expect in a smartphone; sporting a 5 megapixel sensor and is capable of geo-tagging, face detection, and much more. This is a great improvement to the plain Jane 2 megapixel camera on the Bold 9000. The Bold 9900 is also capable of recording 720p videos, not because of the camera but because of the more powerful processor. The Bold 9000 is capable of recording video but only at a much lower SD resolution.

The Bold 9900 is an excellent phone for RIM, not because it bests other smartphones but because it narrows that ever growing gap. It gives Blackberry users a little bit of what other smartphone users are getting while still maintaining the excellent email and messaging systems that is at the core of their service.
