Canadian handset maker Research In Motion has announced its two new devices — BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380. Both the devices will come armed with the new BlackBerry OS 7.
“The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is the latest addition to the Bold series taking its place alongside the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones running the new BlackBerry 7 OS,” the company said in its official blog.
The Bold 9790 has a 2.44 inch display that will support 480×360 pixel resolution in 4:3 aspect ratio. In terms of physical design, it appears to be the cross-bred product of Bold 9700 and the BlackBerry Torch 9850.
Despite having a 2.44 inch, the Bold 9790 will feature a touchscreen interface which makes it similar to the Nokia E6 that has 2.46 inch touchscreen and also the BlackBerry Bold 9780 with 2.44 inch display. Obviously, the Bold 9790 will come with BlackBerry 7 OS and will also support Near Field Communication.
Under the hood, this smartphone sports a powerful 1 GHz processor, a whopping 8 GB of memory and a 5 MP auto-focus camera. It will also come with the Near Field Communication (NFC) which will allow users to read smart tags on signs and posters, and connect with other NFC enabled devices — all with a simple tap.
Recently RIM had announced a price hike in select BlackBerry 7 OS running smartphones due to the Rupee-Dollar fluctuations taking place.
It is the first BlackBerry Curve smartphone to sport a touch screen. Besides, it will also come with new technologies such as NFC and Augmented Reality.
The 3.2 inch screen will support 480×360 pixel resolution with 4:3 aspect ratio and has 189 pixels per inch. The smartphone also features BlackBerry’s Social Feeds application, which ties all of your social networks together into one place. With Social Feeds you can update each of your social networks at once, and new messages from your friends pop up at the top of the screen so you can check them quickly and easily.
Besides, it has a 5 megapixel camera.
