One of them is the new BlackBerry Bold 9790 which features both a high resolution touchscreen and RIM’s beloved physical keyboard. It also comes packed with a 1GHz processor, 8GB of onboard memory and an expandable memory card slot that supports up to 32GB.

RIM also updated it’s economy line-up with the new BlackBerry Curve 9380 which comes pre-installed with various social networking apps. It also packs in a 5MP camera, and a high resolution 3.2″ touchscreen, a first in the BlackBerry Curve “family”.

“We are very excited to expand the BlackBerry 7 portfolio with the new BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380,” saidCarlo Chiarello, Senior Vice President, Handheld Product Management at Research In Motion. “BlackBerry smartphones offer a uniquely refined mobile communications experience that people love and we think many customers will be thrilled by the faster performance, beautiful touch displays and compact designs available with these new BlackBerry 7 based models.”

The new BlackBerries will be available over the coming weeks. There is no word on the pricing yet.
