The BlackBerry Bold 9790 was announced a few weeks ago as a more affordable variant of the Bold 9900, RIM’s current flagship in the ‘classic BlackBerry’ form factor. The 9790 has a 2.44-inch 480×360 touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, 5 MP camera, 8 GB of built-in storage space, microSD card support, NFC, and the usual connectivity options. It runs BlackBerry OS 7.
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is now available in Canada from a large number of carriers – as you’d expect in RIM’s native country.
Rogers offers it for $99.99 with a three-year contract, $349.99 on two-year, $399.99 on one-year and monthly, and $449.99 without a contract.
Bell will give you a BlackBerry Bold 9790 if you shell out $99.95 on three-year, $379.95 on two-year, $404.95 with a one-year agreement, and $429.95 without a contract.
Virgin Mobile offers the Bold 9790 on the SuperTab for $99.99, or $429.99 without a contract.
Telus is a bit more expensive asking for $129.99 with a three-year term, $379.99 on two-year, $429.99 on one-year, and $479.99 sans contract.
Koodo Mobile has the smartphone priced at $400, but you can pay $250 and have $150 on the Tab.
