BlackBerry Style 9670 unveiled
When one thinks of BlackBerrys, one would most probably think of a rather fat candybar form factor with the famous keyboard which is a whole lot easier to hold and type, but it is nice to see Research in Motion (RIM) roll out a different form factor once in a while. The latest model from RIM would be the BlackBerry Style 9670, which is a clamshell smartphone that features a full QWERTY BlackBerry keyboard, while running on the latest BlackBerry 6 operating system alongside a wide range of advanced communications and multimedia capabilities. You still have slightly more than 10 days to save up for it, since Sprint will be offering the BlackBerry Style 9670 on October 31st.
This unique new BlackBerry smartphone will continue to retain their famous full QWERTY BlackBerry keyboard as mentioned earlier, making email, messaging and real-time chats with BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) extremely easy. Not only that, it comes with a 5-megapixel camera with flash and support for video recording, integrated GPS navigation for location-based apps and geo-tagging, Wi-Fi connectivity and extended data coverage, not to mention an expandable memory slot that further expands its internal memory by another 32GB.
The optical trackpad will deliver the way for fluid navigation while boasting a couple of large displays, where the external screen will allow you to quickly view notifications and messages, while a high-resolution internal display will make Web browsing or watching videos a pleasure. You might not have a whole lot of colors to choose from, with only Steel Grey and Royal Purple being your choices, but at least it is better than just charcoal as with many other business-like devices. Of course, most of you would by now be wondering how much the BlackBerry Style 9670 will cost – it will retail for $99.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate, where you can also opt for Everything Data plans at $69.99 monthly. Any takers?
