What was announced by RIM early this year, the BlackBerry 7.1 OS update just made landfall here in the Philippines, and it’s only for Bold 9900 users at the moment.
With the new 7.1 OS update, Bold 9900 users can take advantage of new NFC feature called BlackBerry Tag. This allows NFC-capable Blackberries to share information and content simply by tapping the phones against each other. Invite a friend to BBM, exchange contact info, documents, URLs, photos, apps, multimedia content, these are possible with just a tap.
The latest update also gives Bold 9900 users the much-needed ability to share mobile internet by turning their phone into a mobile hotspot for up to 5 WiFi-enabled devices.
