RIM shows off BlackBerry Bold Bellagio 9790 with quick video tutorials
With the buzz that the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 has captured, you would hope that it would be the model that RIM is concentrating on. With a physical QWERTY keyboard second to none, a vivid 2.8 inch touchscreen and a fast single-core processor combined with the new BlackBerry 7 OS, even non BlackBerry addicts have been keeping an eye out for the launch of this model.

But let's face it. Not everyone is a fan of the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 and there are those who swear by their current 'Berry Bold 9780. For those people, RIM has developed a sequel model in the form of the BlackBerry Bold Bellagio 9790. Originally code named the Onyx III, this model has a touchscreen, runs BlackBerry 7 OS, is embedded with an NFC chip and most likely has dimensions similar to the 9780.

Crackberry was able to get its hand on a trio of tutorial videos for the device, which should have the same specs as the more well-known BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. One video shows off a bit of the functionality of the BlackBerry 7 OS and the new UI while another video concentrates on a quick hardware tour. The third tutorial examines what is behind the battery cover. Those of you who have penciled in the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 as your next smartphone, has your conviction been wavered any by the Bold 9790?

I don't know if you are like 5 years old and trying to spell or maybe your cat is walking on your keyboard but damn. If you want to try to post in english, I would suggest you try using the google translation feature and type in your own language and it will translate it to english then just copy and paste it here.

It is almost August, RIM. You are going to release something at some point, ain't ya? All kinds of leaks. Problem is, no one can buy a leak. One new device since Q3 2010 is not a real good way to keep your Crackberry fans happy.

:/ i think this guys are just trying to conform the users they already have and not looking for expanding their market... no one, at this point, would leave their Android, Iphone or WP7 phone for this one.. :/, c'mon RIM

I've played around with it. It's not bad. But not earth shattering either! If you have the current Bold, it'll be a nice upgrade.
