SIM free BlackBerry Bold 9790 to be out on January 9 in the UK
Already available in Canada and India, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 will be out in the UK soon, too. We’ve previously reported that the 9790 would be released by O2 UK sometime in January, and now we have a more exact release date for the new smartphone: January 9.
Retailer MobileFun says it will start selling the new Bold on that day. Unlike O2, MobileFun will offer the handset SIM free (it will cost you £399.95; that’s about €472 or $624 – rather expensive I’d say).
The Bold 9790 runs BlackBerry OS 7, and features a 2.4 inch touchscreen display with 360 x 480 pixels, QWERTY keyboard, NFC, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 1GHz single-core processor, 768MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage space, and a 5MP rear camera.
