QWERTY flip BlackBerry Style 9670
After months of waiting we can finally welcome the BlackBerry Style 9670 (previously rumored as Bold 9670), RIM’s first flip smartphone equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard. The phone is hitting the Sprint stores across the US on October 31st.
The BlackBerry Style 9760 is a nice looking, though not that thin, clamshell coming in two colors – Steel Grey for the boys and Royal Purple for the gals. On the front there is a small but handy touchscreen and on the back – a 5MP autofocus camera with VGA video recording.
It’s not the first time we get to meet the QWERTY-fied fatty (which you might know as Bold 9670) but today is the day when all questions will be answered. The thing is powered by a 624MHz processor and runs the recently unveiled BlackBerry OS 6.
The Style 9670 has a full QWERTY keyboard and right above it is the 360-by-400-pixel display. The CDMA-compatible Style also features support for 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and comes with a built-in GPS receiver on board.
The Grey Steel variety should start selling on October 31st for 100 US dollars (after a mail-in rebate and with a new contract with Sprint), while the purple Styles should become available a tad later, early November. There is still no word on GSM-loving Style phones but we bet those are just around the corner.
