It was expected that WIND Mobile would be launching the BlackBerry Bold 9790 because an OS update was made available last week. Good news for those looking to score this BlackBerry 7 OS device as the launch date is now confirmed for February 3rd. The price points are currently the cheapest in Canada at $49 on WINDtab+ or $399 outright.

Specs of the Bold 9790 have it with a A 2.45-inch touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard with optical trackpad, 1GHz processor, 5MP camera and can hold up to 32GB with a microSD card. Overall dimensions are 11.4mm thin and weighs in at only 107 grams. Check out our full review here.

(Thanks tipster!)

      @wiley stfu. Just because you have an android which is a 90% stolen product doesn’t make you the sh*t, ok? Go and suck on g00gle’s balls a litte harder.

    Has anyone wonder why wind is keep pushing the windtap and windtap+, two reason one to keep the customer another one is screw the dealers, because everytime when a dealer sell a windtap to a customer wind mobile holds dealers subsidy funds for the phone for 90 days, if anything happy to this customer paying late or not paying, the dealer will lost the total subsidy for the phone and wind is off the hock losing nothing, no wonder why wind has so much money to build the new towers

    Okay price, although i am still deciding between this, HTC Panache or Radar, Nexus S, or Nokia Lumia 710. What are your suggestions?

    • Lawlerballer

      Go for either the Nexus S or Lumia 710

    If I wasn’t soooo busy being a troll on winds site I could have been first on here telling more lies. So blah blah blah warranty blah blah jabroni blah blah. I get much more attention on winds site, and thats all my handlers want, meaningless, unsubstantiated lies, untruths, and meaningless bogeyman scare tactics. None of it has to be true, I get paid by the post.
