RIM outs BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380 - device model numbers now showing on BlackBerry App World dev portal
On last week's RIM Earnings call it was noted that more BlackBerry 7 Smartphone Models have yet to be announced and released. On the unofficial/in the wild side we've known for a while about the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380, and now we have yet another piece of evidence that these two devices should be getting officially announced sooner rather than later. As the image above illustrates, on the BlackBerry App World developer portal the model numbers for the 9380 and 9790 are now both showing up.
Of course we've already seen plenty of stuff leak for these new devices, including a tutorial video, the UAProf document, and hands-on photos of the Bold 9790, which features a narrower form factor than the Bold 9900 which is more 9700/9780 like. The Curve 9380 is the first BlackBerry Curve to sport a full touchscreen and no keyboard, and we've seen it pop up in photos and video already.
I know our own Adam Zeis is super excited for the BlackBerry Bold 9790. Any other CrackBerry readers out there jonesing for the new Bold 9790 or Curve 9380 to hit?
