That is incorrect information. In addition to Bluetooth, there are many significant difference between the 7280 and 7290. Here are a few:
7280 has 16 MB RAM; 7290 has 32MB. Big difference with 4.0/4.1
7280 is tri band GSM/GPRS (850/1800/1900) - great for the US. The 7290 is quad band (850/900/1800/1900) - great for the world.
7290 has much better back lighting - much better.
If you want to see all of the difference, go to the RIM web site, go into the products section and do a comparison of the two. There is no comparison.
