On the hardware side, the new Bolds get a 1.2 GHz Processor, 768 MB RAM, 8 GB on-board memory (plus microSD slot supporting up to 32 GB cards), a 5 megapixel camera and 720p video recording. Theres also a built-in accelerometer and a compass (magnetometer) for location-based services and augmented reality overlays like the Wikitude browser, and support for high speed 4G/HSPA+ networks. The 2.8-inch Liquid Graphics capacitive touch screen display has a 640x480, 287 ppi resolution (the iPhone 4 has 326 ppi by way of comparison) and offers up to 60 frames-per-second performance with instant UI action/response according to RIM.
