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. We've yet to hear back from RIM to confirm this, however, so stay tuned for any updates.

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.

Boy Genius Report also reported a rumor that BlackBerry OS 7.5 will be the last major OS release before QNX on smartphones.
