Product Shot 1 The Pros:BlackBerry Protect is preloaded- Personal data is backed up and secured in the cloud. Smaller version of the 9900 that's more pocket friendly. Touchscreen is very responsive when swiping and scrolling.

The Cons:Slower 1GHz processor when compared to the competition. Keypad isn't as forgiving as the larger version on the previous generation bold's. Slow graphics rendering while surfing the internet.

Like the Bold 9780, this phone's predecessor, the Bold 9790 comes equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard with "fret style" angled keys, a precise optical trackpad, 5 megapixel camera, and a high-resolution touchscreen display.
