Blackberry 9900 – Lighter, Better, Stronger

We have all reached a point with our Blackberries when we wanted to throw them at the wall. I got the Blackberry Torch when it first came out and I gave up fixing the issues that it had, my email never worked on it. I didn’t think of purchasing another Blackberry really until there was a lighter one and with solid operating system. Recently my Torch has been restarting on its own and with the announcement of the new 9900 I was looking forward to trying it.

Initially I’m not too fond of the Bolds but I needed a thinner Blackberry and wanted to move on from the Torch. I was hoping that the new operating system would be vastly better then before, and I liked that it booted so quickly. I got to playing with it right away and started moving things around, and I liked the OS and the feel of the phone. Its a solid phone but not too heavy, very good for a 5.0 MP camera since other phones have surpassed that now. I especially love the rubber on the outer edge on the rear of the phone and the carbon fiber back, gives a very clean and light look to the phone. It has more of a brushed aluminum frame then it does a chrome frame, thankfully I hate chrome so it isn’t too bad once you see it. Overall its a very nice phone built by RIM with a nice and smooth operating system, I’m going to put it through it’s paces once I’m done transferring one phone to the other. Got the phone for 243 KD unlocked from outside of Kuwait and that includes delivery, if you are looking for a new BB and you want it light then this the phone for you.

BlackBerry Bold 9700 – In Kuwait


This is probably one of the most sought after Blackberry after the other ones, everybody seems to want one. I am very comfortable with my 8900 Curve which does the job perfectly and is relatively light, but some people just don’t like the keyboard. And in my opinion the current Bold is filled with bugs and problems, so this 9700 Bold is similar to the 8900 Curve in design but with a big keyboard like the original bold and hopefully more stable software. As for a availability it is trickling in the market with astronomical prices, even buying an unlocked one from the US is a bit expensive but there are solutions.

  • Kuwait Prices range from 240 – 270 KD as of today
  • From you can buy it for 165 KD and shipping two day to Kuwait is 30 KD and they accept international credit cards so it goes for 195KD which is a much better price with the link below
