The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is available to pre-order now on Vodafone, ahead of its anticipated release next month.
Vodafone is offering the messaging focussed handset, which at just 10.5mm thick is the slimmest BlackBerry ever, free on a range of two-year contract options.
The phone teams the physical QWERTY keyboard and advanced email smarts for which BlackBerry handsets are famed with the latest, more consumer-friendly version of its operating system, BlackBerry OS 7.
The updated platform adds a slicker, faster browser and voice-activated searches for users’ content and over the web. A feature dubbed BlackBerry Balance has also been introduced to make it easier for BB obsessives to keep their work and home lives separate.
On top of that, tucked inside its stainless steel rim-encased frame is a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera capable of 720p video recording and a 1.2GHz processor to keep everything ticking over super smoothly.
Other carriers set to offer the phone at its official launch next month are O2 and Three, both of whom are expected to launch pre-order schemes imminently.
