We recently got some hands on time with the latest additions to the BlackBerry 7 range, and first up we checked out the BlackBerry Bold 9790.
It joins the BlackBerry Bold 9900 at the sharp end of the RIM range, packing a slightly lower-power processor at 1GHz and a 2.45-inch touchscreen.
We're also talking about slimmed down dimensions here, something RIM is saying the European and Asian users are really into. At 110 x 60 x 11.4 mm it's certainly not the largest BlackBerry around, and fits nicely in the hand.
We also had an odd experience with the keyboard too - despite being crammed into a tiny chassis and therefore having less space to plop the keys on compared to the Bold 9900, we actually found it more usable thanks to slightly raised buttons.
However, that's just our opinion - and a lot of other people we spoke to preferred the exact opposite, so it could just be our feminine fingers enjoying the different layout.
OS-wise, we're looking at a very similar situation to the Bold 9900 (if you can sense a theme here) with all the same features on board, including the NFC technology for smart tagging, and in the future, mobile payments and door unlocking too.
If you want to see how the BlackBerry Bold 9780 works under the finger, then check out our BlackBerry Bold 9900 review, which explores the OS in-depth and uncovers some of the niftier features of BlackBerry OS 7 for this form factor.
But in terms of design, we really like the appearance of the new Bold 9790, with the sleek lines and curved finish impressing in the hand. It does lack the high-end brushed metallic band of the 9900, which we were fans of, meaning it doesn't quite have the same premium feel under the finger.
However, the slimmer dimensions and lighter chassis complement each other well, with the touchscreen much easier to tap thanks to the whole phone taking up less space in the palm.
The BlackBerry Bold 9790 has been given a UK release date of early 2012, and we expect the UK price to be something similar to the other Bold, which is currently costing a ridiculously expensive £35-£40 per month.
We're hoping to bring you our full BlackBerry Bold 9790 review in the next few weeks, so keep one eye trained on TechRadar... you can look at whatever else you want with the other one. We suggest a jam festival, as everyone likes jam.
