Excerpt: It’s not often you hear the words “smart flip phone” that is until you meet Sprint's Blackberry Style 9670. And smart it is. The hybrid BlackBerry is half flip phone, half smartphone, complete with the signature BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. The Style is an excellent mid-priced option for a non-touchscreen BlackBerry with all the benefits of RIM’s OS 6.
Pros: Smartphone features in a flip format, fanstasic email service, easy setup, battery life
Cons: Browser slow compared to rivals, not as media savvy as many rivals, external screen could have been put to much better use, some services require the phone to be open to use
Excerpt: RIM has clearly made a departure from its usual portrait QWERTY with the addition of the BlackBerry Style (9670). A smart, attractive flip, the Style impresses immediately with its quality build materials; just holding it transmits a sense that this phone was built with quality stuff. On closer examination, the contoured Style offers a customizable external display on the outside, and a full QWERTY keypad on the inside.
Excerpt: Available in the US from the end of October, with no UK release date a the time of writing, the BlackBerry Style sports a compact design and the latest version of the BlackBerry OS, but the camera is subpar and the keyboard isn't as good as the ones on other BlackBerry devices.
