Written By Sam on 3 November 2010

CDMA users in India have a lot to look forward to with RIM’s new offering to the CDMA technology space with the BlackBerry Bold 9650. This top of the line model is a refreshing and much required upgrade after the Blackberry Tour 9630.

Smartphone users with CDMA technology can now enjoy their new handsets that come with:

  • Optical Track Pad – replacing the track ball feature, characteristic to the older models of BlackBerry phones.
  • Doubled up internal memory of 512MB will ensure that the new OS 6 also functions to the desired levels.
  • Add to this the enhanced Wi-Fi support that was missing in the earlier BB Tour 9630 plus a GPS chip and global roaming features.
  • The screen size is bigger than the Tour 9630 by 0.04 inches and comes with crisp 480 x 360 pixel resolution that is characteristic of the BlackBerry Bold.
  • The camera is a 3.5 megapixel one with image stabilization, LED flash and auto focus features.

The high point of this handset is that it will come with GSM support as well, giving you another network option and an extra edge over other handsets. That’s not all, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 comes 3G ready. Tata Indicom, the CDMA arm of Tata Teleservices, has already announced the launch of the device on its network. Finally, it is compatible with the CDMA-variant of high-speed internet services, leveraging the same EV-DO technology that powers Tata Photon or Reliance NetConnect. We do not have the price details yet. Stay tuned for more.
