Incorporating the BlackBerry Tag, BlackBerry users share information and content by simply tapping their NFC enabled BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone against another NFC enabled BlackBerry smartphone. They can instantly invite a friend to BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), exchange contact information, documents, URLs, photos and other multimedia content, and they can also pair their BlackBerry smartphone with an NFC enabled Bluetooth® device.

With BlackBerry 7.1, customers can be productive from virtually anywhere. They can now turn their BlackBerry smartphone into a mobile hotspot that can be shared by up to 5 Wi-Fi® -enabled devices, including laptops and tablets.

Also with the OS 7.1, a new Battery Saving Mode feature provides customers the option to have their smartphone settings automatically adjusted when the battery power reaches a level pre-defined by the users.
