I finally got my Blackberry Bold 9900 and I can’t be more thrilled. After days of waiting for X-Cite by Alghanim to get it, I got a heads up from Tazmania (thank you VERY much!) that Eureka has it in stock for 199KD. I automatically gave them a call and they said they did have it in stock! I rushed to Eureka and without any hesitation picked up the phone. Cutting right through the cheese, I’m going to bullet my comments and remarks after having the device for almost a day:
- Some of the applications (such as TuneIn FM and Falldown) have yet to be featured for the blackberry OS7. This means that there are some apps that have yet to release a new update making them available for OS7 users.
- The Touchscreen is mighty large and remarkably responsive! I just love it. Wicked fast.
- The QWERTY is the perfect size. More “clicky” than previous Blackberries.
- The device Feels very comfortable in the palm of the hand. I saw myself holding it in the traditional “two-thumb-typing” position as well as holding it in one hand and scrolling the touchscreen with my index finger. Plus the device is super thin.
The following are the apps I’ve downloaded so far (feel free to chime in with recommendations):
- Google Maps
- Google Search
- Wikitude (i’m sure i’ll have a post reviewing this soon!)
- MBC FM
- ScoreMobile FC
- BeWeather Free
