This time around, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 was featured on Three UK’s coming soon webpage, where it’s sitting alongside the Nokia Lumia 710 as well. Essentially, this affordable option to the flagship BlackBerry Bold 9900 is going to become available with the carrier towards the end of this month – giving some customers ample time to save up for the eventual purchase. Still, it would’ve been nice to get a sneak peek to its pricing right now, then again, it’ll probably become publicly known relatively soon.
If you’ve forgotten about this one, which isn’t US-bound for the moment, it features a 2.4” touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 360, iconic Bold keyboard, 5-megapixel camera, 1GHz single-core processor, 768MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, HSDPA, NFC, Wi-Fi, and BlackBerry OS 7.
Obviously, it’s nice seeing this one coming to a wireless carrier as a contract option, but for those who simply can’t wait, the SIM-free version will go on sale starting on January 9th.
