With the smartphone market booming the last thing that any manufacturer would want is a delay and unfortunately that’s exactly what has happened over at RIM with the new BlackBerry Bold. The Boy Genius Report has reported that the latest handset from RIM, the BlackBerry Bold 9900, will be delayed until September even though the initial launch was slated for summer of this year. it’s still a ways off, and a bit disappointing when we’re waiting on lots of other RIM hardware, like the Torch 2 9810 and Curve Apollo.

The Bold 9900 has a similar design to the older Bolds, but with a sleeker and thinner form factor. The display is also now a capacitive touch screen, designed to take advantage of BlackBerry OS 7 that brings support for augmented reality apps via a built-in magnetometer.

It also offers a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, NFC technology for mobile payments, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, 8GB of internal memory, and more. The Bold 9900 is a quad-band GSM device with compatibility with HSPA+ networks, while the Bold 9930 is the dual-mode version with both CDMA and GSM support.

Hell, RIM is slowly fading, though some would disagree and say it’s happening faster. Decisions like this are to blame. Android releases multiple devices almost every week. Additionally, there is a big rumor circulating about some kind of phone, being release around September as well. Oh, that’s right the iPhone 4S/5. It may not happen, but why chance your business going up against an established Titan like the iPhone.

Not only will the 9900 be the thinnest BlackBerry to date, measuring in at 10.5 millimeters thick, but the new hardware should also make it one of the most powerful. The new 1.2GHz processor runs at nearly double the clock speed of the Bold 9780, and system memory will be expanded up to 768MB. We’ll just have to wait a little longer to finally get our chance to pick up the 9900 and check out the new BlackBerry OS 7.
