Research in Motion has a couple more models for the masses who cannot get enough of BlackBerry goodness – the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380, where both of these smartphones will be powered by the BlackBerry 7 OS. As you can see above, these two devices are not only slim, but they too retain their BlackBerry design cues. The BlackBerry Bold 9790 might be relatively compact compared to the huge smartphones from the Android camp these days, but that does not mean it has no power. No sir, it will still feature a high resolution touch display and a tactile keyboard, while the BlackBerry Curve 9380 holds the distinction of being the first BlackBerry Curve smartphone to date to come with a touch capable display.
A 1GHz processor will power the BlackBerry Bold 9790, where the 8GB of internal memory can be further augmented by another 32GB of additional storage via a microSD memory card. As for the BlackBerry Curve 9380, this device will feature a 3.2” high resolution display coupled with a bevy of social networking apps, ranging from BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), Facebook, Twitter and Social Feeds apps. Other hardware specifications include a 5-megapixel camera with flash and video recording capability.
There is no word on pricing or availability yet at press time, but they will begin to be released in the coming weeks. [Press Release]
