Excerpt: The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is the latest addition to RIM’s high-end ‘Bold’ range of smartphones. It offers many features of the Bold 9900 , including a touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard, but in a smaller chassis and at a slightly cheaper price. How does it compare to it’s older sibling?
Pros: Email and messaging features, Compact and lightweight, Excellent battery performance, Sharp screen
Cons: Keyboard is a little small, Expensive when sim free, No HD video mode
Summary: The BlackBerry Bold 9790 runs on BlackBerry OS 7.0 and is powered by Marvel Tavor MG1 1 GHz processor with 768MB RAM. It has a 2.4 5-inch,480 x 360 pixel display. The BlackBerry Bold 9790 also comes with a 5.0-megapixel camera that is able to record videos.
Excerpt: The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is the latest in a long line of phones from RIM. The styling is typical of BlackBerry with a sleek profile and elegant curves. It features a backlit QWERTY keyboard, which features all the keys you need, but they are a bit small.
Excerpt: The Bold 9790 is a touch-and-type phone. Still, RIM has retained the optical trackpad as an alternative to the touchscreen. As expected from any BB phone, the physical keyboard is good. The keys are perfectly sized, but there's no spacing between adjacent keys. This can be uncomfortable for many.
Pros: Great design; Sturdy build; Smooth UI; Decent camera; NFC-ready.
Cons: Expensive; Lacks scratch-resistant screen; Mediocre sound quality; Emails restricted to BB Internet Service.
Conclusion: You might conclude that we don't like the 9790. But that's not it at all. In fact we are just more disappointed at the mistakes BlackBerry has made with it. Yet again we have a phone with a lovely screen, great battery life, and a superb keyboard.
Pros: Nice screen, QWERTY is still great
Cons: Doesn't feel fresh or exciting, too much plastic
