Staying power

Browsing on the relatively small screen is helped by pinch to zoom capability with fast connection available from Wi-Fi or 3G. There’s also GPS backed by BlackBerry Maps and the on-board speaker proved to be crisp and clear, delivering perfectly fine call quality. The battery lasted fairly well too, delivering a good day and a half of solid use.

BlackBerry faithful crowdpleaser with enough appeal for BBM newbies

Verdict

Down the scale from the BlackBerry Bold 9900, the Bold 9790 still offers fine value with a good quality screen, decent camera and excellent Qwerty keyboard. As far as apps go, RIM's BlackBerry handsets still have a lot of catching up to do with the likes of Apple and Android, even so BB OS 7 packs in a fair amount of functionality that'll satisfy BBM fans out-of-the-box. ®
