BlackBerry will soon be unleashing its latest addition to the Bold range with the BlackBerry Bold 9790, smaller but still capable sibling of the Bold 9900

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is available for pre-order on at the price of £354.98 putting it well below that of its larger brother the BlackBerry Bold 9900.

Offering up the same high-end specs such as a 1GHz processor and full touchscreen the 9790 features a smaller form-factor and loses the alluminium frame, replaced by a high-quality plastic back and frame.

On the back you'll find everything is business as usual with a 5MP snapper and flash, what's new however is the inclusion of NFC technology which allows the 9790 to perform a huge range of wireless tasks.

Available from from the 17 January the Bold 9790 will also be arriving on Three, Orange and is set to make its touchdown on or around the 9 January.
