Recently announced by RIM, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380, are two of the newest smart phones to feature the new BlackBerry 7 OS. The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is set to be an extra special treat too, as it’ll be the first BlackBerry Curve to feature a touchscreen.
Let’s have a look at the spec on offer, shall we? Starting with the Bold 9790, we find that it has 8GB of storage space available as standard, but can handle up to 32GB, and has a 1GHz processor on board too.
The phone also has a 2.4 inch touch screen display alongside the now expected and much loved BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. If you decide on the Curve 9380 instead, you’ll be going sans keyboard, but you will get a larger 3.2 inch display instead.
For your money you also get a pretty average 5 megapixel camera. It also comes with a number of the now essential social networking applications, pre-installed so you can start tweeting as soon as you get it out of its box.
You also get a free document editor with Document To Go and free backup with BlackBerry Protect. As of yet, there are no release dates or RRPs for these phones.
There’s been an influx of BlackBerry 7 devices recently, with the Torch 9810 and 9850, and the Curve 9360 recently getting their release. These smartphones are as you’d expect from BlackBerry, but as great as BlackBerry 7 is, I’ll save my excitement for the much anticipated BBX release instead.
