Is Bold 9900 smart phone?
I am using bold 9900 since last month. I used to have an android phone, samsung nexus s. The nexus s performed well with android OS, gingerbread. Of course, there are lots lots lost of applications including even free apps. The reason why I changed to bold 9900 was that I missed qwerty keyboard because I used to have a bold 9700 for a year in the past. However, because I used the nexus s for six month, I feel now that bold 9900 is much slower in using for every functions such as internet, application and downloads than android. I just heard that RIM is targeting to have better market share by BB10. For the success, I think RIM should improve software first. Especially, I do not understand why my bold must be restarted whenever I delete apps... That is obviously sucks!! Does anyone know how I can avoid restart after I delete apps?

You cannot avoid restarting your phone after deleting an app. That's one of the reasons bb is moving away from a java based os. Its a 10 year old os that's been beefed up to today's standards. It is a lot better than it used to be with today's hardware but won't come anywhere close until bb10 with qnx running.

You can choose not to restart after deleting an app. If you're upgrading, you just can't use that app again until you've restarted.
But yes, it's kind of annoying.
However, I've used my 9900 for several days, maybe up to a week, before rebooting due to an upgrade or deletion of an app. Is it really that big a deal?

If you install several applications, you can clutter it up and reboot it on a later schedule.
But it wouldn't be a big problem though since the reboot time isn't that long.gee gee baby~

You're troubled by a 30-45 SECOND reboot? Try 4-5 MINUTES with the older OS's. I am currently on an Android but seriously thinking of getting a Bold 9900. My Android running Gingerbread takes 4-5 minutes to reboot and sometimes crashes without notice. I think I could probably live with a reboot of less than a minute.Future Blackberry Bold 9900

The rebooting has to do with the Java based OS and there is nothing much we can do about it. But the new BB 10 devices will not have this problem. I think for RIM, the rebooting is the last thing they should worry about. Lack of good apps and unable to get support from major companies in banking, transportation, health care and government sector is a far bigger problem.
BlackBerry is still a smartphone, but a limited smartphone due to the lack of support from third parties.

On another note, yes it is a smartphone and I reboot/battery pull for fun sometimes.
