Rogers Now Carrying BlackBerry Bold 9790

Comments

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is essentially a smaller, more compact version of the BlackBerry Bold 9900. Here at BlackBerryCool, we love the Bold 9900′s form factor because it’s reminiscent of the old Bold 9000. The original Bold 9000 is one of the most iconic BlackBerrys and represents a heyday for the company. If you’re looking to get one, we’ve heard from our pal RogersDude69 that it’s now available at Rogers.

Rogers has confirmed to us that they’re offering the BlackBerry Bold 9780 and our good friend RogersDude69 let us know that the promo kits are now in stores.
