If you're burning to secure Samsung's Galaxy Note, AT&T is now taking preorders for the hybrid slate for $300. Samsung was the only tech company with a splashy Super Bowl ad this year, and that's sure to drive interest in the manufacturer's hot product of the moment, which hits stores officially on February 19. Pimping the Galaxy Note, an interesting cross between a small tablet computer and a large-screen smartphone, Samsung's spot also pointedly took a dig at Apple fans.

CNET también está disponible en español, Don't show this again, Visit manufacturer site for details, The BlackBerry Bold 9790 looks like almost all the smart phones RIM has released in recent years, It has that familiar corporate styling and the classic BlackBerry full Qwerty keyboard wrapped around the bottom of the phone's face like an alphabetic beard, But the 9790 is relatively unusual for a BlackBerry because it's a hybrid, thanks to a small capacitive touchscreen up top, It's not the first touch-cum-Qwerty BlackBerry -- new york case for apple iphone 7 and 8 - clear/lace hummingbird black last year's Bold 9900 also packed both in -- but RIM has crammed everything into a smaller package this time around..
The 9790 is undoubtedly well built but it's expensive. SIM-free it costs around £350, or you can pick up the handset free from £20 a month on two-year contracts. Mobile is all about software these days and with BlackBerry OS 7 inside -- RIM's latest but dated operating system -- there's nothing to convert new users to the BlackBerry platform. Unless you're bonkers about BlackBerry, we can't really recommend getting involved with the 9790. Another reason not to buy is the fact that RIM is planning to launch its next generation OS -- BlackBerry 10 -- in the second half of this year. There's no indication from RIM that BlackBerry 7 devices will be upgradeable to BB 10, so it's probably worth waiting for the big platform refresh, rather than buying into the dwindling days of the old ways.
All the usual BlackBerry messaging features are on board the 9790 but RIM's platform remains fiddly to use compared to Android and Apple's iOS, And it's a country mile behind when it comes to apps, The 9790's tiny touchscreen is fiddly -- it's not big new york case for apple iphone 7 and 8 - clear/lace hummingbird black enough to make web browsing a pleasure and if you mainly use a BlackBerry for messaging, your fingers are going to be tapping away on the physical Qwerty keyboard most of the time anyway, On contract, the 9790's is in the same price bracket as lots of great high-end Android phones, including the ever popular Samsung Galaxy S2 and the HTC Sensation XE, Apple's latest iPhone, the 4S, is not that much more expensive either -- it's free on contract from around £30 -- making the 9790 a very tough sell to anyone other than a confirmed CrackBerry addict..
BlackBerry 7 is more user-friendly than previous versions of the BlackBerry OS as RIM has tweaked and tinkered to try and make up some of the ground it lost to Android and iOS. One welcome addition is a faster browser -- RIM claims it's 40 per cent quicker than BlackBerry 6 OS. There are also zippier graphical transitions on the home screen. On the surface, it doesn't feel entirely like a phone from yesteryear, even if the look of the handset has barely changed. RIM has grafted on a touch-friendly menu (pictured above) in an attempt to bypass the oft-thumbed BlackBerry key. Hold a finger on the touchscreen and it brings up a grid of options relating to the app you're using or the aspect of the OS you're viewing, or even specific content you've highlighted.
