First Impressions of the BlackBerry Bold Touch aka 9790

Comments

The BlackBerry Bold Touch 9790 is the latest touch/QWERTY device and it’s a “sister” device to the Bold Touch 9900. The 9790 is destined for the APAC (Asia Pacific) region and it’s smaller and comes at a lower price point. In terms of a product line, it complements the Curve 9380 and gives more options for BlackBerry users in Asia. We spent just a little time with the device and have put together some impressions.

BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 Review: The Updated Touchscreen and QWERTY Slider

35 Comments

Before the new devices got announced I was under the impression that a lot of users would be holding off and waiting for the QNX-based BlackBerry devices. I thought that RIM would be in transition and release something only slightly better than last year’s offerings, leaving BlackBerry fans to be sentenced to exile or to wait patiently for the second coming of BlackBerry.
