BlackBerry Bold 9790 sits for more photos, looks ready to launch
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 has been photographed quite often, and now we have another set of pictures to add to the collection. Judging from the look of the latest portrait, this phone should be close to launch. This Bold has a smaller footprint than the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 that was released earlier this year, but still is equipped with that highly functional (if not smaller) BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. And with the BlackBerry 7 OS installed, the phone will offer the second-gen BlackBerry WebKit browser.

The follow-up to the BlackBerry Bold 9780, this new model offers a 1.2GHz single-core processor and if the specs line-up with the other new models, we should see 768MB of RAM on board. There will be a 5MP camera on back and 8GB of native storage than go as high as 40GB using the micro SD slot. The rest of the specs will probably be released once the Canadian based manufacturer decides that the time is right to announce the phone.

There is some time constraints involved here for RIM. One is that the holiday season is rapidly coming upon us and RIM is going to want to see this model being given as a gift this Xmas. Additionally, it won't be too long before those BBX powered SuperPhones start leaking and once they do, sales of older BlackBerry models might just come to a standstill.

Same ol lame ol design. Nothing inspiring. Someone say business phone? Every high end smart phone can do that nowadays.

I agree! This looks just like all their prehistoric phones. I think I had this very phone 5 years ago. RIM is not making any sense.... It’s time to rebrand the company and focus on innovation rather than selling the same crap.

Just like everyone else, I loved what Rim brought to the table years ago. Great design, secure, functional, and customizable. But now it’s just behind times!

I don't understand why RIM would practically release the same phone as the bold 9900 and just make it thinner and with less quality materials. I don't see this device selling very well while its sitting next to its big brother (bold 9900). Honestly if you just want a cheaper and thinner blackberry, they already released that alternative... the blackberry curve
