BlackBerry Style 9670 Review: The First Clamshell, Full QWERTY BlackBerry

Comments

blackberry style 9670

The BlackBerry Style is official and has launched on most carriers for $99.99 on a 2 year contract (after a mail-in rebate). With TELUS, the Style will be $49.99 on a three year contract. The Style comes in steel gray and royal purple, as well as the standard black and features BlackBerry 6 out of the box.

The Style is an interesting form factor that has been hugely popular over the years but isn’t necessarily a modern trend. When you look at the devices that are gaining a lot of steam and popularity, a clamshell form factor doesn’t come to mind. Still, you can’t deny the prevalence of these devices and if anyone is going to do it at a good price point and modern design, it’s RIM. I’ve been using the device for about a month now, so lets take a deep look at this device, and see what it’s like. Hit the jump for the full review.

BlackBerry Clamshell 9670 to be Named BlackBerry Style

Comments

It looks like the BlackBerry Clamshell 9670 might be getting branded the BlackBerry Style. Putting the 9670 in the Pearl or Pearl Flip series may have made sense but it looks like RIM is giving the device a new product line of its own. Does that mean we’ll see several iterations of this device? Maybe. It could also just be a one off depending on its success. The BlackBerry Style isn’t the best name and RIM could have chosen any of the following:

BlackBerry Sorta-Stylish
BlackBerry Clam Chowder
BlackBerry Castanet

No? Yes?

Flippin’ Sweet – BlackBerry 9670 Coming to Sprint?

Comments

The beat on the street per the boys of BGR (they may or may not ALSO be the boys of summer) is that the Verizon exclusivity of the new BlackBerry 9670 clamshell may have been as fleeting as your last summer hookup. According to new photos and details, the device may also be making its way over to Sprint for some additional CDMA love. Are you excited about the possibilities of this device on Sprint?
