Cannot decide which one I need to buy (9780 or 9790)

Need help.. What is application memory and device memory? How much application memory and device memory does the 9780 and 9790 has? Can't decide which one is better. Smiley Sad

The 9790 has more onboard memory (768 MB vs. 512 MB in the 9780).  Other than that, they're very similar in every respect.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy

I think you would find the 9790 is the better device overall:

 

9790:  OS 7 (7.1 with many carriers) vs 9780:  OS 6 (cannot upgrade to OS 7)

9790:  Trackpad + Touch screen vs 9780:  Trackpad only

 

The 9790 is also somewhat thinner, very slightly lighter, a sleeker styling.  The 9780 has a slight edge in battery life.  Even if the touchscreen doesn't ring your bell, the smoother OS 7 experience alone should tip the balance.

 

If you want to do a side-by-side comparison of specs, go to Blackberry.com, select "Devices" > "Blackberry Bold".  You'll see the full Bold line-up.  Hover over the device name, and select "Compare" on each.  You'll get a side-by-side comparison.  That will give you a clearer picture.

 

Hope this helps. ~ecm

So the 9780 battery will last longer than the 9790 if I'm connected to BIS non stop? IS the 768MB the application storage or just RAM? Thanks in advance.
