BlackBerry Bold 9790 Details
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 features an updated interface, easy-to-use keyboard, and excellent ergonomics but lacks in terms of RAM speed and display size. This is a phone for the BlackBerry fan. The Bold 9790 is currently available for under Rs. 10,000 in India.
Display and Design
The phone comes with a 2.45-inch TFT touchscreen display that has a resolution of 480 x 360, working out to a pixel density of 245 PPI that is a tad inadequate for videos, games or browsing, requiring users to zoom in and out, but shows bright colors. The screen is plastic rather than glass, highlighting the need for a protective screen to prevent scratches. The phone features a QWERTY keyboard and an optical trackpad for moving the cursor. Users also have the option to use the touchscreen instead for navigation. In terms of measurements, the phone is 110 x 60 x 11.4 mm while weighing 107 grams. In terms of externalities, the phone has an eye-catching chrome and black plastic but finish, quite different from its predecessor, the 9900 with its metal body. The phone is evidently small and compact owing to its small display. The phone is available in black and white colors. A play/pause button sits between the volume buttons on the right edge of the phone. The 3.5 mm audio jack is on the left edge while the microUSB port in at the bottom.
Platform and Memory
The Bold 9790 runs BlackBerry 7.0 OS that seems an upgrade over predecessors in terms of speed and efficiency in switching between apps and providing users with new/useful features. The phone runs on a single-core 1 GHz Marvell Tavor MG1 processor with 768MB of RAM that runs applications on the phone without delays. BlackBerry’s BBM messaging service is available on the Bold 9790. The phone is equipped with 8GB of storage space that can be increased to 32GB with an SD card that fits into a dedicated slot. ?
Cameras and Battery
The rear camera on the phone is 5-megapixel that takes adequately clear pictures. It features LED flash and autofocus but none others. The Bold 9790 does not have a front camera as was typical of phones at the time. A 1,230mAh removable Li-ion battery fuels the phone, lasting less than twelve hours.
Connectivity and other features
This version of the Bold supports only one mini-SIM card that supports 3G mobile data networks, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 for device syncs/data transfer, micro-USB 2.0 for charging. The phone also supports GPS-aided by A-GPS for navigation. One downside to the phone is the lack of active noise cancellation, meaning listeners on the other side of the line will experience background when on a call with you.
