Email and messaging have been BlackBerry's lifeblood for years and, as you'd expect, the Bold 9790 has all the usual messaging suspects on tap. BlackBerry email will hook up to your Gmail, Yahoo mail and Hotmail. There's also BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and texting, Twitter and Facebook apps that plug you into your social networks and push notifications to your phone. The BBM app pulls in all types of messaging -- email, social networks, instant messaging, SMS text, Facebook and so on into a single feed. This makes it easy to see who's been talking to you. From here there are also options to reply in various ways so you don't need to dive off into the full-fat Facebook app just to reply to a message.
On the 9790 you can also connect Facebook with your BlackBerry Calendar and Contacts, Once you've signed in, Facebook events are automatically added to your BlackBerry Calendar and the contacts on your phone can be linked with your Facebook account, So the latest profile pictures of your mates will be added to your phone contacts list. But be warned -- this option also shares moraine lake reflection iphone case your phone contacts with Facebook and can eat up extra data, If you're on a pay-as-you-go tariff you may not want to check this box..
The Facebook app itself is packed with features -- including the ability to view your profile, upload photos and post status updates, check in to Facebook Places, view the news feed, see messages, notifications, friend requests, use Facebook chat, search for friends.. you know the drill. The 9790 has a 1GHz chip inside so it's a smidgen less beefy than last year's Bold 9900, which had 1.2GHz under the hood. We found the OS fast and responsive, with menus opening zippily and apps loading promptly.
Full websites are a little slow to render in the native web browser so expect to see a fair amount of grey and white checkerboard as you pan around the site, We found scrolling and zooming fast and fluid though -- all the more so because you're able to pinch or flick the touchscreen (assuming you can fit your fingers on it), Be warned -- moraine lake reflection iphone case there's no Adobe Flash support so lots of online videos won't play, There is a YouTube app though to provide your daily cute cat video fix, BlackBerrys have long been lauded for their ability to eke out their battery like a squirrel husbanding its store of winter nuts, The 9790's spec sheet claims it will last 18 days on standby, or bank enough juice for 6.3 hours of video playback or 33 hours of music, Talktime is also apparently good for 5.2 hours of continuous yakking..
We found battery performance to be okay -- you'll easily get a day's normal use out of the Bold and, if you're only tapping infrequently, you might even manage several days without having to charge it. That said, heavy use -- playing with the phone a lot, leaving its screen on for long periods and having Wi-Fi switched on -- drank a surprisingly hefty slurp of juice in a short period. That's surprising considering the 9790's dinky screen. Watching videos certainly eats up the battery but with such a small screen you're unlikely to want to clock up hours of viewing.
