RIM has done a great job with BB 9790. It definitely wins all awards being slim, powerful and feature rich machine with great looks too. Cheers to all BB 9790 owners and feel sad for people who suffered injuries and pains during the launch of BB 9790 at pacific place in Jakarta. But come to think of it, BB 9900 owners must be furious for what happened to them. BB 9900 definitely looks and feel great in hand, but when it comes to real terms of performance and features it stands nowhere in competition against BB 9790. Its a total let down for BB 9900 owners who are left being a mere freelance Blackberry fans who paid heavy price to carry a logo and brick made by Blackberry in their hand morning till night and do advertising for Blackberry. Yes BB 9900 is a mere advertising gadget made by Blackberry and nothing else as it suffers all shortcomings and have carried a hefty price tag for nothhing but looks and feel. Remember BB 8520, it can do what BB 9900 can do but with a better battery life. Isn't it friends?
ready2shoots, 26 Nov 2011Hid Dr.D i'm using this phone for the last 24 hours, and it takes 2 times for me to recharged ... morefor the battery to have its real performance, it needs several cycle of recharging, that 12-13 hours might gone up~
I did get this phone aswell, I bought a leather case for this phone (from bb store) for IDR 200.000,- (approx 22 USD) and ordered a screen guard
touch n type, simply nice.
Dr D, 26 Nov 2011Hi ready2shoots: just wondering what is the battery life in everyday normal usage, for example... moreHid Dr.D i'm using this phone for the last 24 hours, and it takes 2 times for me to recharged the battery. app 12-13 hours per re charged.
for me it's kinda same like bold 9000 (which is the worst battery life for me) and my previous onyx 2 (9780) which last for max 15 hours.
my usage :
browsing some local web
take several photo with flash
i don't know if it's compare with dakota battery which I guess the same model with onyx 3, but my friend who used dakota, she said it takes her 3-4 recharged battery per day, since she's active in bbm.
for me ya it's kinda normal ya, since you run with OS 7, great capacity screen size (16M), i'm using 100% on screen brightness, no LED indicator.
and btw, yup it was happened a tragedy when the blackberry 9890 launched in Pasific place. i personally feels sorry about that. lucky for me i got my turns before the tragedy happened. it takes me stay awake since last night before the d day of launching to queuing to get the official ribbon from blackbeery as the tag.
just review for me, the material is glossy, especially around the panel pad under the lcd, it's easily gets dirty (kinda oily) by the finger prints. but it's ok.
I've already use clear screen protetctor for my Bellagio, and bought OEM soft shell case for my bellagio which cos Rp.150.000 (around $US 14).
for the touchscreen, i just can say, it's really good, you can adjust the sensitivity from the setup option. it's really useful for me, since this is the first time for me to use and owned a touch & type together in my blackberry.
compare to Dakota, ther's less differences. for me yes it's really fair to have onyx 3 than dakota, which cost more expensive than onyx 3. more or less, same features. what i dont like from dakota, it's really "BOLD SHAPE" only slimmer than previous one
we've read news of the tragedy happened in Indonesia for the 1st launch of BB 9790 which offered to those lucky few receiving 50% discount on the new BB ...
can anyone give us some feedback re: the battery life / usage on a daily basis i.e. does it last a day ?
would appreciate your valued comments ... cheers ...
RB, 23 Nov 2011RIM is smart to have scheduled its first launch in Indonesia. Its their largest market and Ind... moreno the RRP is USD 500 in Indonesia, wait for 3-6 months, as with all Blackberries, price will go down sharply.
There's one day 50% sale on 25th but went awry ...
RB, 25 Nov 2011Hello Indonesia, had a great shopping today? Plese let us know how do you find the device. Whe... moreHi, i am from indonesia.. Didn't you hear about the tragedy? RIM Indonesia and the authorities cancelled the event because of the unruly condition.. They gave 50% discounted price of the blackberry 9790 for the first 1000 buyers. 90 people lost their conciousness and 3 people broke their bones... What a pity... Soon the police came and take control of the situation. That's the report from the Blackberry 9790 launching event
Aing, 24 Nov 2011I'm from Indonesia and never had BB phones (I'm droidyfied :) but yes more and more people her... moreDroid is full of security issues which is a problem for business. You say Indonesia has 2 years fro RIM well Indonesia is the second largest market for RIM. Who wants to spend all day changing widgets in Droid. Get a life. Most people that have bought a Samsung Y are really disappointed with the entry level phone and are stuck with rubbish and a poor texting machine.
Hi ready2shoots: just wondering what is the battery life in everyday normal usage, for example, bbm, occasionaly FB and making and answering a few 5 minutes phone calls?
Appreciate your comments please.
Thanks, cheers ...
I've got this hand held. yup, onyx 3 a.k.a bellagio 9790. amaxzing phone, fast response, with internal 8gb. clear screen capacity. after all, proud being Indonesian, as the first in the world for launching this 9790. got it on 25 Nov 2011 @ pasific place. after all the messed up...
previously i'm using 9780, onyx 2. overall, great phone, nice keypad, works smoothly, no lag at all. the touchscreen also as good as dakota (i've tried my best friend's dakota).
great price also. in Indonesia, disc 50% from 4.600.000 ($US 460) become 2.300.000 ($US 230). I've got it after all of my hard works and efforts. stay wake up all night long, queuing almost 4 hours in a messed situation, finally got it!
overall best ever. my friend who owned a dakota, feels jealous to me as the owner of bellagio

Hello Indonesia, had a great shopping today? Plese let us know how do you find the device. When compared to 9780 its for sure 9790 has a blazing speedy processor, 50% more memory and a touch screen too. But when it comes to built quality does this phone feel sturdy and smooth? It is definitely a nightmare for 9900 users as they paid USD 150 more and got much less features ( only a higher processor which is useless anyway ). Common let us know about 9790. Cheers...
9790 launch, 25 Nov 2011I just saw the launch (and discount promo) for the 9790 in Pacific Place mall In jakarta... It... moreyes that's the lack of a product which was first launched in indosesia,,, lots of free java apps, but not for the Indonesian people, therefore the specifications on the Bold 9790 is reduced, so that they download paid applications. and it is a sales strategy
Not worth at all queing to get this mobile phone, 1 GHZ with only 768 RAM? compared to others brand RIM still need to develop their OS and hardware to become more "smart" phone
I just saw the launch (and discount promo) for the 9790 in Pacific Place mall In jakarta... It was crazy!!! people has been lining up since morning... they say for first 1000 buyer they give 50% discount.
I was having lunch there when i say the commotion... been reading the spec...RAM and Processor are good.. but why no Java????
one person one phone for each buyer and payed by credit card only. 5000 queuer and it sold out 2 hours ago. the normal price is 4,6million Indonesian Rupiah for launch date(25nov) it was discounted to 50% which is 2,3million IDR equivalent to 289 USD
RIM discounted 50% for 1000 first buyer in tomorrow launching in PAcific Place, Jakarta. But officially gate will be open 6.00 am tomorrow
