If you are in the market for a new BlackBerry, or it is nearly upgrade time, then it seems that a couple of the UK phone retailers are offering the BlackBerry Bold 9790 at a pretty nice price. Orange has the Bold 9790 on sale on pay-as-you-go for £229.99 plus a £10 top up and Carphone Warehouse has it slightly higher at £279.99 plus the same £10 top up.
Considering that buying sim free the device will set you back nearly £300 this really is great value for the money. Most networks here have now rolled out BlackBerry 7.1 for the 9790 and the phone really is a pleasure to use. With Christmas looming up could this be the perfect gift for a loved one?
With the BlackBerry Curve 9360 still selling at £179.99 on Orange I would highly recommend spending the extra cash to get a much better built BlackBerry - with a better battery, great auto focus camera, a touchscreen and a nicer QWERTY keyboard.
