BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380 coming soon
BlackBerry phone maker RIM has just revealed two new BlackBerry OS 7 handsets that are set to arrive in the coming weeks – The BlackBerry Bold 9790 and the BlackBerry Curve 9380, which is the first in the Curve range to receive the full touchscreen treatment.
Starting with the BlackBerry Bold 9790 – it features the classic Bold-like styling BlackBerry fans have become familiar with. Features include a high resolution screen that RIM claims is ‘highly responsive’. The trusty keyboard is also there, and an optical trackpad provides its means of navigating the menus.
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 will feature the latest BlackBerry 7 operating system, and have a 1GHz processor, which should make for a fast, yet smooth performance when running applications and browsing websites such as The Gadget Show Online.
On board, owners will find 8GB of memory, and an expandable memory card slot to support up to 32 GB of extra storage.
The second of RIM’s announcements is the BlackBerry Curve 9380. It’s the first in the BlackBerry Curve family to go all-touchscreen.
Among the features are a 3.2-inch high-resolution display and a wealth of pre-installed social networking apps including BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook and Twitter and a 5-megapixel camera with flash.
Like the BlackBerry Bold 9790, the Curve 9380 will use the BlackBerry 7 OS. Both will also include built-in support for Augmented Reality and the exciting Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which lets users scan physical objects such as movie posters to grab the latest film trailers.
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380 will be available on a variety of networks over the next few weeks. Will you be going for either?
