If the BlackBerry Bold 9900 isn’t doing it for you, there’s a version that’s based on the popular BlackBerry 9700, and yes, there’s a touchscreen and keyboard on this Bold, too. The BlackBerry Bold 9790 will feature a 5-megapixel camera, 8GB of built-in storage, NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi and we believe a 1.2GHz processor. If all goes well, this device could launch before the end of the year, even as early as next month. Hit the gallery for the rest of the photos, including a size comparison with the BlackBerry Bold 9900.
