Research In Motion Introduces the New BlackBerry Bold 9790 Smartphone in Indonesia

Jakarta, Indonesia - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced plans to launch the new BlackBerry® Bold™ 9790 smartphone in Indonesia. The powerful BlackBerry Bold 9790 features a compact design and offers users a fully loaded, high performance smartphone with the dual benefits of a high resolution touch display and a highly tactile keyboard. The new smartphone will be available in Indonesia from 25th November priced at 4,599,000IDR from authorized partners: PT. Teletama Artha Mandiri, PT. Comtech Cellular, and PT. Selular Media Infotama.

"Indonesia is an important market for RIM and we are very excited to introduce the new BlackBerry Bold 9790 smartphone here first,” said Gregory Wade, Regional Managing Director at RIM. “The BlackBerry Bold 9790 combines a fluid touch display with the iconic BlackBerry keyboard in an impressively slim and stylish design. It’s powered by the new BlackBerry 7 operating system and delivers a truly outstanding mix of communications, multimedia, productivity and social connectivity features.”

True to the BlackBerry Bold brand, the new BlackBerry Bold 9790 smartphone is powerful, full-featured and built with premium materials and finishes. It combines a high-resolution and highly responsive touch display with a highly tactile keyboard and a precise optical trackpad, but comes in a narrow design that is easy to carry and exceptionally comfortable to hold.  With the BlackBerry 7 OS and powerful 1 GHz processor, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 delivers fast, smooth performance for browsing the web, running apps, working with documents, and enjoying multimedia. It includes 8GB of onboard memory and an expandable memory card slot that supports up to 32 GB of additional storage.

BlackBerry 7 also introduces an enhanced browser that provides a significantly faster, more fluid web browsing experience. The browser includes a new JIT (just in time) JavaScript compiler to improve the load time speed of web pages and it offers optimized HTML5 performance for incredible gaming and video experiences. The popular universal search capability has also been enhanced with support for voice-activated search, so users can simply speak to begin searching their device and the web for information.

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 smartphone includes built-in support for Augmented Reality and NFC, allowing users to connect with the world around them in fresh new ways. With the Wikitude Augmented Reality application, users can find nearby BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger) contacts in real-time, read reviews on restaurants close to them, or get the story behind an interesting landmark and points of interest. NFC also enables many new and exciting capabilities, including the ability to make mobile payments, pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone.

A consumer launch event will be held on 25th November in the south lobby of the Pacific Place Shopping Mall, Jakarta for people who want to be the first to own a the new BlackBerry Bold 9790. From the 26th November, customers can purchase the BlackBerry Bold 9790 from authorized BlackBerry retailers across Indonesia.

So, it's basically a "middle-man" between the 9780 and 9900... Pretty much same specs as a 9900 but with a toned down CPU. It even has a touch screen...

Why did it come out in indonesia before canada. I want this 9790. Looks allot better than my bold 9900. Hurry up and put on the canadian market.
