RIM has just released details of the successor to the hugely popular 9700 n the BlackBerry Bold 9780, letting us know about its specs and a possible UK launch date.
Firstly the latest version of the BlackBerry OS is onboard, bringing a better web browsing experience and deeper social networking integration to the table.
The Bold 9780 does not diverge much from the standard BlackBerry layout of portrait QWERTY keypad and familiar black shell, but on the rear the inclusion of a five megapixel camera will allow it to sit on a level pegging with RIM’s Torch handset in terms of photographic specs.
Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth are both onboard and the retail package should include a 2GB microSD memory card, although users can obviously supplement this with a larger card of their own.
RIM has not been too specific about the launch date of the BlackBerry Bold 9780 but it has said that it will be arriving in November, which means it could be just a few weeks away from a UK launch.
Judging by the initial specs, the BlackBerry Bold 9780 will appease those long time RIM fans who want an incremental upgrade to their existing handset.
