In an effort to keep BlackBerry Developers in the loop so that they can have their apps compatible for newer devices coming out, RIM has once again unofficially unveiled not-yet-announced devices. For a while now, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380 have been popping up but nothing official from RIM has been announced about the devices. It is fairly safe bet an official announcement will be coming soon with BlackBerry DevCon Americas starting in only four days.

RIM didn’t release full details about the two devices, but provided a peek at their specs. Shared details include NFC (near-field communication) support and RIM’s BlackBerry 7 OS.

  • Bold 9790: This monoblock smartphone includes a 2.4-inch touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel camera with video capture, 8GB of storage, and a 1.2GHz processor.
  • Curve 9380: This phone appears to primarily be a touch device, and includes a 3.2-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels. It also has a 5-megapixel camera with video capture, and is powered by an 800MHz processor.

RIM did not specify what cellular technologies these devices support (GSM, CDMA), nor their pricing or when they are expected to go on sale.

BlackBerry developers can now download a new set of BlackBerry device simulators to test their apps on including sims for the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380.
