RIM Outs New Bold, Curve BlackBerries - 9790 / 9380
 
RIM recently provided details about two unannounced BlackBerry smartphones to developers via its web site. RIM didn't release full details about the two devices, but provided a peek at their specs. Shared details include NFC (near-field communication) support and RIM's BlackBerry 7 OS.
  • Bold 9790: This monoblock smartphone includes a 2.4-inch touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel camera with video capture, 8GB of storage, and a 1.2GHz processor.
  • Curve 9380: This phone appears to primarily be a touch device, and includes a 3.2-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels. It also has a 5-megapixel camera with video capture, and is powered by an 800MHz processor.
RIM did not specify what cellular technologies these devices support (GSM, CDMA), nor their pricing or when they are expected to go on sale.

RIM tells devs to get ready for BlackBerry Curve Touch and Bellagio

If you're going to give your devs a nugget of info about some of your unannounced devices on a publicly available site, we hope you won't be so surprised that word actually gets out about them. That's exactly what happened to Research in Motion, as the company let it "slip out" to devs that two future BlackBerry OS7 smartphones -- the Bellagio 9790 and Curve Touch 9380 -- are inbound. The whole point in the message was to inform developers of what kind of resolution to expect in the new phones' displays. From the bits and pieces we're given, it appears that the Bellagio will have a 2.4-inch screen using 480 x 360 resolution to produce a respectable 245 PPI; the Curve Touch, on the other hand, will feature an identical res on a larger 3.2-inch display, resulting in a PPI of 189. The probability of hearing an official announcement this week is pretty high, but we'd say the intended

Wonder if they did this to offset the bad flack on the outage. Lots of negative press on RIM.
