Research in Motion (RIM) has today launched its new BlackBerry Bold 9790 smartphone for businesses in Australia.
The smartphone is currently only available from Telstra as a business/fleet device, so it can be deployed across teams, sales divisions and fleets, RIM said.
The smartphone runs on BlackBerry 7 operating system, and has a 1GHz single core processor. It has optimised HTML5 performance for gaming and video. It includes 8GB of on-board memory and an expandable memory card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage. It has a voice activated search component where users can search for information on the device or on the Web.
The smartphone also has built-in support for augmented reality and near-field communication applications.
“With the Wikitude Augmented Reality application, users can find nearby BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) contacts in real-time, read reviews on restaurants close to them or get the story behind an interesting landmark and points of interest,” RIM said in a statement.
“NFC also enables many new and exciting capabilities, including the ability to make mobile payments, pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone.”
For businesses interested in the smartphone, further information should be sought from a Telstra business manager, RIM said.
