So far, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the BlackBerry Curve 9360 have been the only BlackBerry 7 smartphone available in the Philippines. In the past few days this has change with RIM launching five new BlackBerry 7 devices. Technically though it is only four as one of them is just the white version of the Bold 9900. So, the new devices to make it to the islands are the BlackBerry Bold 9790Curve 9380Torch 9860 and the Torch 9810.

They are available from authorised retailers and carriers already. The white Bold 9900 is available for Php 31,690, which is the same as the black model. Pricing for the other devices are: Bold 9790 - Php 22,890; Curve 9380 - Php 16,990; Torch 9860 - Php 24,690; Torch 9810 - Php 28,590. However, pricing may vary at different retail channels so perhaps it would be wise to shop around first.

Five BlackBerry 7 smartphones land in the Philippines


this is wikked! im a crackberry addict from philippines and loving my 64gb playbook and 9700

indeed. you can get big discount on greenhills shopping mall in the philippines.. you can save $100 dollars on a 9900.

Hi @grindcorefan,

Alex from RIM here. It sounds like you’ve had a solid run so far with your PlayBook and Bold 9700. If you’re looking to upgrade, the Bold 9790 takes the 9700’s form factor but packs a lot more punch into a little package. It features the same BlackBerry 7 OS and NFC technology as the Bold 9900, and I’m really enjoying its compact design. You should also check out the eye-catching pure white Bold 9900. It’s win-win either way!

When you get a chance, take a look at this video about the new BlackBerry Bridge features in PlayBook 2.0 that will make your BlackBerry smartphone and tablet pairing even more powerful:
