No Trick, all Treat as the BlackBerry Style clamshell heads for October 31st launch on Sprint?
Based on a leaked internal document meant for Sprint eyes only, on October 31st you might find a new BlackBerry in your treat bag mixed in with the Tootsie Rolls and candy corn. On Halloween, Sprint appears ready to launch the BlackBerry Style 9670, a flip phone codenamed Oxford.

The great news for 'Berry fans is that the BlackBerry Style 9670 will have the new BlackBerry 6 OS under the hood and will also feature the new WebKit browser. A 5MP camera is on the rear with AF and flash and the handset includes 4GB of internal memory, 512 MB of RAM and an HVGA display.

The BlackBerry Style 9670 is also easy on the wallet. After a combination of mail-in rebates, instant discounts and a 2 year signed contract, the device will cost you $99.99. Off contract, the price is $399.99. The Gray model is expected to be ready for the October 31st launch while a purple version is coming soon.

BD GUY first of all stop yellin! Second, the Torch is GSM only right now. I bet if they come out with a CMDA model Sprint would try to get it.

And why is it Sprint's fault that they can't get the Torch 9800? As Da Beast points out, the Torch 9800 is GSM only at present. If anything, it is RIM's fault for making the Torch 9800 GSM only.
