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.
