Noticeable hinge packing BlackBerry 9670 clamshell is spotted over at the FCC
There is just no way to hide yourself when you're a BlackBerry handset sporting a noticeable hinge in documents over at the FCC. Without a doubt, the first thing to come into mind is the long rumored BlackBerry 9670 that we've been hearing and seeing about for quite some time now – but finally, it has made its way over to the great halls of the FCC packing its obvious hinge mechanism.

From the test reports, it confirms that the unconventional looking BlackBerry device will be sporing 802.11 b/g/n/ and support for dual-band CDMA with this specific version. With that in mind, it'll most likely make its presence known with either Sprint or Verizon – or even both since the two carriers play off one another in terms of their offerings. Seeing that RIM's BlackBerry Developer Conference is taking place next week, it wouldn't surprise anyone to see this handset during the event.

Im sure there's gonna be alot of posts trashing this phone so I'll kick it off lol yes we get it you dont like clamshells but some of us still do & this has things the Lotus doesn't. Not everyone wants a 5 inch all touchscreen phone. Now hurry up Sprint!! So this phone wrapped up in a tidy package what's not to like Full qwerty,apps,wifi,good camera w Flash oh & to squash all the stereotypes no im not that old or a girl LOL. :)

I love clams. I <3 clams for dinner especially if I don't have to dish out any clams to pay for it. I'd love clams for dinner more if someone else not only dished out the clams to pay to fill my belly but also gave me a wrapped giftbox with a 4inch touchscreen clamshell smartphone inside. I've got big fingers and I don't want to get clam juice all over the screen if I have a choice. I like high resolution displays because I want to use all of it to show more information without scrolling. I don't like having that screen space eaten up by a virtual keyboard. I like a clamshell because it protects my screen from scratches and from accidentally dialing. Yes, Sprint/Clear 4G/Wimax would be good. I don't really care about RIM/Blackberry but, hey...power and flexibility. i'm not a girl. i am an engineering geek that wants it all. girls could buy me the stuff but hey who says the world is perfect. (luv clams. would hate clam-idia)
