July 11, 2011 | By | 7 Comments

Woot! Nothing like good news on a Monday. The BlackBerry Bold Touch has made its way to the FCC. From the looks of the report it could be both the Bold Touch 9900 and 9930, which is rumored to be launching anytime between August and September. To remind you the Bold Touch takes on RIM’s classic Bold 9000 design, but features a larger keyboard and beautiful touch display, in an ultra slim body. The Bold Touch will also pack a decently powerful 1.2GHz processor, 8GB of on-board memory, NFC (near field communications) and a 5.0 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording. This will also be the first (of several) BlackBerry smartphones to run BlackBerry OS 7, which brings a faster, better, stronger user experience to the BlackBerry smartphones. Full specs of the device can be found below:

  • 115 x 66 x 10.5 mm, approximately 130 g
  • 2.8? capacitive touch screen display – VGA (640×480), 287 dpi resolution
