Over the past few months the unreleased BlackBerry Bold 9790 has received its share of picture and video leaks. The 9790 looks incredibly similar to the Bold 9780, but has some features that are found on the new 9900. Most notably, the 9790 has a 2.44-inch touchscreen with a QWERTY keyboard. In addition, this it’s also expected to have a 1.2GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, NFC capabilities and Wi-Fi… so it’s a decent mid-range BlackBerry device.
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 will probably be announced sometime this week during BlackBerry DevCon, but we’ve also seen it pop up in both the TELUS and Wind Mobile device road maps. Now, discount carrier Koodo Mobile (owned by TELUS) looks to be prepping to launch this soon. The image above is a shot from their inventory system, clearly listing the Bold 9790. The price point looks to be $400 but we’re not sure yet if this is simply a placeholder or the true no-contract price.
We’ll have more info soon!
