Research In Motion announced a major update to its smartphone operating system, BlackBerry 7, and the first smartphone to come loaded with it, the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, due out some time this summer. The new device sports a 1.2 GHz processor, graphics processing unit (GPU), 768 MB RAM, 2.8-inch touschscreen, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capability, and 8 GB of onboard storage. The BlackBerry 7 OS itself should offer an easier and faster user experience and voice-activated search. No legacy support though, which means all current BlackBerry owners can't upgrade their devices with it. (Engadget and Boy Genius Report)
