The Blackberry Bold Touch 9790

I got to play with the Blackberry 9790 for a short period of time (hats off to my cousin who bought the phone). We got this phone at Widget City for a fair price but I still think that Blackberry phones are too expensive for its features. For its price, I can get a Dual-core Android phone instead. But hey, Blackberry still got some loyal fans thanks to its unique services like the BBM. The rates are much cheaper on the Blackberry like the BB Max, BB social and many more. Some of teens still prefer Blackberry over Android and iOS just because of BBM. Yes, they can’t leave their Blackberry just because of that. (On a different note, Android rise up to 300% while the Blackberry and iOS surged 66% and 62% respectively according to Interaksyon). Anyway, back  the the Blackberry 9790

There is one thing that Blackberry always impress me. It’s the keyboard. Yes, I know that there are a lot of QWERTY phones out there like the Android touting HTC Chacha & the Symbian-powered Nokia E6 which we reviewed a couple of months ago but the Blackberry phones have the best QWERTY keys. I can type faster on the BB curve and bold phones faster than any phones that I’ve tried. 
This phone has a lot less features compared to its big brother, the Blackberry Bold 9900. This one has the same 5 megapixel camera but this one can’t record 720p videos. It can only record VGA Videos (Bummer right?). The processor was also downgraded to 1 GHz from 1.2 Ghz. The screen and resolution was also smaller but it still retain the capacitive touchscreen. Anyway, here’s the video of the hands-on of the Blackberry Bold 9790. Widget City is selling this phone for P19,800
