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.

Over the past week we’ve seen the launch of two new BlackBerrys including the BlackBerry Style and the Bold 9780. The BlackBerry Style is a unique flip form factor coupled with a full QWERTY keyboard. The Bold 9780 is a refresh to the Bold 9700, and while it’s nothing new form factor wise, it’s all the goodness from the 9700 with a slight spec boost. Be sure to check out the PlayBook news too.

BlackBerry Style 9670 Official Video Up on YouTube

Comment

The official video for the BlackBerry Style is up and the phone looks pretty cool. I could have done with less German candy rave music but it’s not terrible. The more we see of this device the better it looks. The Pearl Flip was actually a pretty cool device, and the ability to preview incoming messages on the phone was handier than a shirt with pockets. More to come!

BlackBerry 6 Tutorial Videos for the Clamshell Style 9670

Comment

The new setup videos for devices that use BlackBerry 6 show off some of the basic functionality of the device and recently videos for the BlackBerry Style 9670 have appeared online. There are three videos and the external display on the 9670 is probably the best feature of this upcoming device. Much like the Pearl Flip, it’s nice to get quick preview access to messages. Check out the rest of the videos after the jump.

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?
