Some time ago we heard rumors that RIM would eventually make an Onyx with a touchscreen. We even got word yesterday that a Bold 9780 style with touchscreen device had hit assembly with RIM engineers. Now it seems the ‘Onyx 3’ has made its first public appearance, sporting a model number 9790. There aren’t any apparent hardware upgrades from the 9780, except the addition of a touchscreen. There’s no definite word whether or not the Bold 9790 will make it to production, but at least we know it is being tested. Would you prefer this smaller ‘Bold Touch’ or the upcoming Bold 9900/9930? Hit the Break for more photos.
