BlackBerry Style 9670 gets Halloween launch by Sprint
Following the BlackBerry Torch 9800, the Style 9670 will be the second model from the Canadian manufacturer to ship with the new BlackBerry 6 OS under the hood, along with the WebKit browser. That would also mean that the new model will be the first non-touchscreen unit to come out the box with the new software installed. The combination of the newer OS along with the much improved surfing experience is a huge treat for those planning on switching to the BlackBerry Style 9670 from an older model.
The first flip form factor device from RIM to offer a full QWERTY keyboard, the phone will have an external screen with resolution of 240 x 320 and an internal display listed at 360 x 400. On the back of the unit is a 5MP camera with AF, flash and support for video capture. With 512MB of RAM and the ability to hold up to a 32GB microSD card, the BlackBerry Style 9670 has plenty of storage capacity. A new YouTube app is pre-installed for those who like to view the site's library of video clips.
The BlackBerry Style 9670 will be available on October 31st for $99.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a signed 2 year contract. The phone is available in two colors, Steel Grey and Royal Purple. Starting tomorrow, the Steel Grey model can be pre-ordered at www.sprint.com/bbstyle. The Royal Purple model is expected to become available in November.
