RIM Indirectly Announces Bold 9790 ‘Bellagio’ and Curve ‘Touch’ 9380

RIM Indirectly Announces Bold 9790 ‘Bellagio’ and Curve ‘Touch’ 9380

RIM has put up a post for developers with notes on screen resolution sizes for two upcoming BlackBerry 7 devices. Those devices happen to be the Curve 9380 ‘Orlando/Malibu’ and the Bold 9790 ‘Bellagio’.

One new BlackBerry smartphone will feature a 360 x 480 all touch interface. Application developers will likely find that their BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone builds will run on this new BlackBerry smartphone without change.

BlackBerry Smartphone Model Display Screen size Aspect Ratio Pixels Per Inch Dot Pitch (mm)
9380 Portrait view: 480 x 360 pixels
Landscape view: 360 x 480 pixels
3.2 inches
4:3 landscape view 189 0.13425

The second upcoming BlackBerry smartphone will feature a 480 x 360 touch + keyboard interface. Application developers will either need to add touch support to their existing BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone apps, or modify their BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone builds to account for landscape being in a vertical orientation.

BlackBerry Smartphone Model Display Screen size Aspect Ratio Pixels Per Inch Dot Pitch (mm)
9790 Portrait view: 480 x 360 pixels
Landscape view: 360 x 480 pixels
2.44 inches
4:3 landscape view 245 0.1035

RIM has also released the simulators for the Bold 9790 and Curve 9380, which can be downloaded here. What do you think of these BlackBerry devices with lower specs than the recently released BlackBerry 7 devices? Will these new devices be for emerging markets?

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
