It has been some time since RIM announced the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, but Virgin Mobile recently came forward reminding Canadians that they will be launching it soon. Posted on their Twitter profile, Virgin Mobile Canada stated "well be getting the bb 9900 super soon!"

No word on exactly when "super soon" is, but hopefully we'll see it launch in first part half of the summer. The Bold 9900 is a big step up for RIM and BlackBerry products, offering the familiar Bold shape and design, but also including a touchscreen. The 9900 has a 2.8" (640x480) touchscreen display, along with the standard trackpad and full QWERTY keyboard. It also features a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM. Other features include 8GB of internal storage, HSPA connectivity reaching 14.4Mbps, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GPS, and even possibly NFC support in the future.

Though the hardware is seeing a variety of big improvements over current BlackBerry devices, the OS will also be updated. BlackBerry OS 7.0 won't be available for existing models, and will begin its life with the 9900/9930. It features a variety of improvements and additional features, including an updated browser with full HTML5 support and faster rendering, in addition to "BlackBerry Balance", a feature that helps keep work/home content separate from each other.

No word yet on pricing, but we'll be sure to keep you updated with any further information that is made available.

WIND Mobile has recently launched the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300, which features a 2.4" (320 x 240) display, 2MP camera, and runs OS 5 at launch, but will be upgradable to OS 6 soon. It also features an optical trackpad, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and can hold up to 32GB with a microSD card. The Curve 3G has been available from other carriers for some time now, but it's always good to see WIND expanding on their device line-up. The Curve 3G 9300 is available now, for $290 contract-free, and will apparently be available through WIND upcoming tab program, though no definite information yet on when that will launch.

Supported connectivity includes 3G, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS, and the device also features a 2MP camera, and memory expansion up to 32GB via microSD card.

Along with a re-designed UI, BlackBerry 6 comes with a new WebKit browser, which is a significant improvement over the existing BlackBerry web browser. The Curve 3G is available now from Sasktel for $50 on a 3 year term, or $375 contract-free in either "Graphite" or "Fuschia".

Rogers has officially launched the BlackBerry Curve 9300, with pricing of $79.99 on a 3 year term, or $399.99 outright. The 9300 is very similar to the 8520, but offers connectivity over Rogers' 3G network, providing faster data speeds. It features an optical trackpad for navigation, a 2.4" (320x240) display, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a 3.15 MP camera. At roughly $80 on a 3 year term, we're suggesting you opt for the Bold 9700 at only $20 more. If you're looking to purchase the device contract-free, the new Curve 9300 might be a good choice, since it's outright pricing of $399 is the lowest of any current BlackBerry from Rogers, but beware, as of now it doesn't seem like this device is going to get RIM's upcoming OS, BlackBerry 6.
