We caught sight of the smartphone on Three’s Coming Soon page, sitting alongside the soon-to-be-released Nokia Lumia 710. There’s not yet any details on the Bold 9790’s pricing or release date, but MobileFun claims that the phone will be available less than a week away on January 9.
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 was announced in November, as the sequel to the popular Bold 9780. On the spec-front, the phone boasts an improved 2.45-inch (360 x 480) touchscreen, alongside RIM’s usual set of tactile QWERTY keys. More interestingly, it also runs the latest version of BlackBerry software, BlackBerry OS 7, equipping the phone with a revamped UI, improved web browsing and an updated version of BlackBerry Messenger.
Three customers eagerly awaiting the phone’s arrival can also look forward to a 5 megapixel camera with VGA video, NFC, 8GB of built-in memory expandable to 32GB and fast HSDPA and WiFi connectivity.
