Blackberry Bold 9900 with the New Blackberry 7 OS
Despite the typhoon, people were BOLD enough (including me) to attend the launching of the new BlackBerry 7 OS and the new line of phones that already carries it!
The event was hosted by my favorite Bianca Valerio who looked lovely in a vintage long red dress.
Research in motion (RIM) today launched the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone in the Philippines. Blackberry fans can expect the Bold 9900 to be available in the Philippines on October 7 from all carriers and authorized retail channels.
