    Hi just bought a BB 9790 from ebay and all the reviews show it in a favourable light (got to be better than my 9320), was wondering what you the people who live with the phone think?

    Here are the charts for the 9320 and the 9790.

    BlackBerry Curve 9320 vs BlackBerry Bold 9790 - Phone specs comparison

    I had a 9780, all I can think of is "9780 with 1000mhz processor and OS7" which was not a bad deal back when the device launched! If you keep good care of that, you may even manage to skip the clock altogether (may need to load a hybrid and do some OS shrinking).

    But yeah, overall, it is better than the 9320 and a productivity beast!

    I love my 9790.. got it in white! its small and light and has a great keyboard as well as a sharp responsive touchscreen. battery life is good runs about a day and half. i prefer this to my 9900 - and is certainly better than the 9320 (also own this, hate the noisy clicky keyboard)

    Easy there.

    You CAN Bridge.

    BB10's Bridge allows you to:
    • Share your internet access over BlueTooth;
    • Open on - Get something from the Z10 and open it on the PlayBook;
    • File access - access files from the Z10 on the PlayBook;
    • Remove control - use your Z10 as a remote for the PlayBook;
    • Presentation Mode - control slideshows on the PlayBook using your Z10;
    • Remove keyboard - use your Z10 as a wireless keyboard for your PlayBook


    So you don't let me catch you saying you can't bridge a BB10 device.... Problem is that most people only seem to remeber/associate Bridge with the Bridge apps. No, you can't see the same email, calendar, tasks and notes from the smartphone on the PlayBook.

    Or can you? If you have your stuff on online services, then answer is pretty much yes.

    I stand corrected, is that the same for the q10. As the microphone on my 9790 has stopped working, might have to update sooner than planned.

    Al, how much did you end up paying for the 9790?

    The phone had been used and the playbook was 6 months old 'had only been used a couple of times'. It is in excellent condition not a mark on it. came in originL box with all chargers, data cables and an original bb case/stand.

    Not only can you bridge but now the data connection is LTE. I have unlimited LTE on Verizon. Let's see. 3G bridged to my Torch 9850. Or smoking fast LTE bridged to my Z10. Tough decision. Lol.

    Yeah I know a lot of the bridge features are missing. But some folks only truly cared about the free "tethering" for Internet access.

    I've bridged them and yes the internet is handy when out and about, also use it for bbm and memopad. Just wish bb would change their minds and develope an upto date tablet to go with their new phones.
