Malaysian pricing for BlackBerry Bold 9790 and Curve 9380 revealed

Those who are looking forward to the riot inducing BlackBerry 9790 and the Curve 9380 will be happy to note that IMCC has revealed the most likely confirmed pricing of the two devices.

When available in Malaysia, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 is likely to retail for RM1,488 while the full touchscreen Curve 9380 is expected to sell for RM1,166.

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 features a 1GHz single-core processor with 768MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage (versus the Bold 9900 1.2Ghz processor with 768MB RAM and 8GB on board storage). You also get a micro SD card slot that support cards up to 32GB.

Other than that, the Bold 9790 features a smaller 2.45-inch capacitive touch screen compared to the 2.8-inch capacitive touch screen on the Bold 9900. The Bold 9790 has a lower resolution display as well, pushing 480×360 pixels with 246dpi versus the 640×480 screen on the Bold 9900 that pushes out 286dpi. Another notable difference is the camera. Both devices feature a 5MP camera but the Bold 9790 shoots videos in VGA resolution (640×480) while the Bold 9900 shoots 720p videos.

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is the first touchscreen device in the Curve family. It features a 3.2-inch 480×360 display, a single-core 800Mhz processor and a 5MP camera that shoots 720p videos, and that’s pretty much it.

U Mobile has already revealed that it will be offering the Bold 9790 with a bundled plan. What’s left to be announced now are just the plans themselves. We’ll keep a lookout for that for you.
