RIM tells developers to be ready for the BlackBerry Curve Touch and the BlackBerry Bold 9790
RIM's Inside BlackBerry Developer's Blog is giving a heads up to those interested in writing apps for a pair of new BlackBerry devices soon to be released. The Blog post is basically written to allow developers to conform to the screen size and resolutions of the displays on the two new models, which according to RIM, are "getting ready to launch".

The BlackBerry Curve Touch 9380 will have a 3.2 inch touchscreen with a 480 x 360 resolution in portrait mode. In landscape, the aspect ratrio is 4:3 and the screen offers 189 PPI. The device will have a single-core 800MHz processor under the hood. A 5MP camera on back will capture video at 720p and the model comes NFC enabled. It is worth noting that the post on the RIM Blog is the first official word of any kind that the phone exists, although the developer's portal on BlackBerry App World recently revealed this model and the BlackBerry Bold 9790.

Speaking of the BlackBerry Bold 9790, this model will have a 2.44 inch display with the same 480 x 360 resolution in portrait mode. The landscape aspect ratio is 4:3, but this unit has a PPI reading of  245 which can be attributed to the smaller size of the display. The device has a single-core 1.2GHz processor under the hood with a 5MP camera on back. A full QWERTY keyboard, 8GB of internal storage and NFC capabilities are included with the phone.

While no precise launch date-or pricing for that matter-was revealed with the post, we would expect RIM to make a formal introduction of the pair pretty soon, especially since RIM itself has noted that both models are ready to be rolled out.
