BlackBerry Bold 9790 mobile phone - hands on walkthrough on video

OMR has now captured on video a hands-on walk through of the recently announced new BlackBerryBold9790 handset, which is due to arrive early in 2012.

The phone arrives with a smaller HVGA+ touch screen, than seen in the Bold 9900 whilst running from a 1GHz processor - where the larger model contained a 1.2GHZ CPU.

There is a traditional Qwerty keyboard built-in to the device, with 768MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, plus support for 32GB microSD cards and NFC, whilst running from the latest BlackBerry 7 OS.

The video below shows where the 9790 fits in to the series of Bold devices; with the phones' dimensions; the keyboard and touch screen; NFC, augmented reality webkit browser and graphics capabilities; the comparison to the Bold 9900, with features, keyboard and CPU.
