Canadian carrier Rogers is the first to announce the Blackberry Bold 9790 as part of its lineup, with a release date estimated to be in time for the holidays.

After several leaks and an announcement, the Blackberry Bold 9790 is finally set to launch on Rogers, with the Canadian carrier promising to have the device home in time for the holidays. That's about as specific as it gets regarding the release date, and pricing information remains as elusive as ever.

As a reminder, the Bold 9790 comes with Blackberry OS 7, a 1GHz processor, and a 2.44-inch, 360 x 480 touchscreen display sitting above RIM's acclaimed Bold keyboard. So, how about it, our Canadian readers? Are you willing to commit to a 3-year contract (yes, American friends, three years) for this phone, or would you rather wait until next year for a QNX Blackberry to arrive?
