Singapore might not get a white Christmas, but we will be getting a white BlackBerry Bold 9900 from 17th December.
Research in Motion's thinnest BlackBerry device, with a depth of 10.5mm, was introduced earlier this year, alongside RIM's updated BlackBerry 7 OS. In a market flooded with dual-core deices, the Bold 9900 comes with a 1.2GHz single-core processor and a modest 2.8-inch display to maintain a robust battery life.
The Bold 9900 is also the first BlackBerry device armed with near field communication (NFC), which lets users interact with other NFC-enabled devices or NFC stations to download info onto their devices or perform simple transactions with a simple tap.
According to RIM, the white Bold 9900 is only available through a two-year contract from either SingTel, StarHub or M1 in Singapore. Contract prices for the white Bold 9900 should stay the same, though prices will vary across the three telcos based on their price plans and subsidized rates.
