You'll be able to try out LG's first curved phone from Friday.
This up-to-the-minute BlackBerry Bold 9790 is the definition of a top-of-the-range smartphone. With incredible build quality, the best BlackBerry services such as BlackBerry Messenger, a robust physical QWERTY keyboard and masses of power, it's a handset that refuses to compromise.
At the heart of the Bold 9790 is the latest version of Research in Motion's (RIM) operating system BB7. Combined with the brawny 1GHz processor, this makes for a supremely powerful smartphone. One that's capable of 40 per cent faster web browsing than phones running RIM's previous platform to help you get the most out of the mobile web.
And there's more. BB7 also features deeper Facebook integration and a revamped, easier to use version of the best-in-class BlackBerry Messenger instant messaging service. And for the first time, it brings Near Field Communications technology to BlackBerry phones to allow users to pay for low-ticket goods and services simply by swiping their Bold 9790 over a reader.
Want even more? You've got it. As with almost all BlackBerrys, you get an accurate physical QWERTY keyboard that's fantastic for tapping out emails and status updates quickly and easily and a trackpad for navigating through menus. But with the Bold 9790 you also get a 2.45-inch touchscreen for the fun stuff.
To keep you entertained, there's also a great media player on board. And to ensure you've got room for all your apps, games, music and videos, there's 8GB of internal storage and you can add a microSD card to boost capacity by up to 32GB.
Other features of the BlackBerry Bold 9790 include a compact, lightweight form factor, a five megapixel camera with video recording and face detection for happier snapping, A-GPS with BlackBerry Maps pre-installed.
