1BlackBerry Bold 9790
The Bold 9790 pairs a QWERTY keyboard with a 2.45-inch touch-screen.

2BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930
The Bold 9900, touted as RIM’s thinnest BlackBerry to date, also pairs a dedicated QWERTY with a touch-screen, though this one is 2.8 inches. Memory, camera, battery life, connectivity and dimensions are the same as the 9790.Â It measures 110mm by 60mm by 11.4mm, and all major wireless carriers offer a version.
3BlackBerry Torch 9810
For the cake-and-eat-it-too crowd, there’s the Torch 9810 slider smartphone, offering again the iconic QWERTY RIM keyboard, but this time hiding behind a more-room-to-move, 3.2-inch touch-screen. Closed, it manages to be smaller than the Bolds in the first two slides, measuring 111 by 62 by 14.6mm. No mention of a microSD slot on the spec sheet.
