We brought you the latest information here. The teaser posted by the officia BlackBerry Indonesia Site declared the debut of a new handset to this region on November 25. The name of this image file “hero Bellagio” we knew it several months ago, is the code name for BlackBerry Bold 9790.
As far as we know, apart from a more slight form factor, the 9790 shares a lot in common with 9900. It is going to feature OS 7, 8GB of local storage as well as the 2.4-inch screen with a resolution of 640 x 480, the same as 9900. But there will be a little lift-up of the 9790 compared with 9900. By including autofocus for the camera which is important for taking high-quality close-up shots, it allows you to take close-up shots anywhere anytime you like. It will also include NFC despite that whether the carriers will allow it to work remains unknown. And from its appearance, it seems the 9790 is much smaller than the 9900. As we all know well about the 9360, maybe the 9790 is as slight as it. Since the 9790 and the 9900 have a lot in similarity and the price hasn’t been leaked, here a speculation from us: if the 9790 is going to be launched cheaper than the 9900, it represents a high possibility that it will not include a touchscreen and the processor is very likely to be 800MHz like the Curve. Of course, this is just what we guessed and there is a time to go for the disclosure of the truth.
You may have this question “why Indonesia is selected as the first launch region?” over your head for a long time. This choice may be strange, but Indonesia does be a huge market for BlackBerry. If RIM cannot take some control over the United State market, it is of great significance for the company to foster loyalty and take further step in the Indonesia market.
