Today RIM announced two new additions to its lineup of smartphones. The QWERTY-packing Bold 9790 and the full-touch Curve 9380 both run on BlackBerry OS 7 and feature HVGA+ (480 x 360 pixels) screens.
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 comes with a 2.45" touchscreen display, a 1GHz Marvel Tavor MG1 processor, 768MB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5 megapixel camera with VGA video capturing and a microSD card slot. The Bold 9790 is well geared connectivity-wise too - Wi-Fi, 3G with HSPA, GPS and even NFC.
The compact new Bold comes with a full four-row portrait QWERTY keyboard and an optical trackpad. The phone runs on the RIM's latest BlackBerry OS 7 and will hit the stores in the following few weeks.
The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is the first Curve ever to come with a touchscreen. It measures 3.2" in diagonal and, as we said, comes with HVGA+ resolution.
The rest of the specs are not quite impressive though - the new Curve runs on a 806MHz processor and has 512MB RAM and 512MB internal memory expandable via the microSD slot. The connectivity package is quite good, though, featuring Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G with HSPA and NFC capabilities.
The Curve 9380 does not have a physical keyboard but still keeps the optical trackpad. The phone is also expected to hit the shelves in the next couple of weeks
