Excerpt: BlackBerry and style go together something like Razor scooters and cool, which is to say, they don’t. RIM may have perfected a straight-laced design that goes well with two-piece suits, polos and khakis, but originality, fashion and style are not words typically associated with the brand. The company attempts to break that mold with the purposefully named Style, a BlackBerry that discards business aspirations for a dress-down design destined for denim.
Pros: Excellent voice quality, Practical, compact clamshell design, Full QWERTY keyboard, Respectable 5-megapixel camera, Speedy OS navigation, Sharp, bright interior and exterior screens, Affordable
Cons: Poor camera placement, Spotty Wi-Fi reception, Only shoots VGA video, Slow, clumsy browser, So-so battery life
Summary: Despite a few quirks, the RIM BlackBerry Style's practical design and advanced feature set make it a great smartphone for BlackBerry newbies and veterans alike.
Pros: The RIM BlackBerry Style combines a clamshell form factor and a full QWERTY keyboard. It ships with BlackBerry OS 6, which has an improved user interface, a new WebKit browser, and a better multimedia experience. Call quality was impressive.
Cons: The Style's square design may be a bit bulky for some users, and the keyboard is a touch too flat for our tastes.
Excerpt: The BlackBerry Style tries to fit a modern smartphone into a design that hasn't been used for a top-end phone in a while. Will it usher in the era of the flip smartphone, or will it just fall by the wayside? Check out this review to find out.
Conclusion: If you’d like a BlackBerry that can survive even tight jeans pockets, or wish to have a full QWERTY BlackBerry that’s in a clamshell form, the BlackBerry Style is just the thing. Hiding underneath that pretty flip there’s a fast BlackBerry smartphone with a great screen, awesome audio, a very nice camera and the full BlackBerry messaging and app experience. Is the new OS BlackBerry 6 revolutionary or will the new web browser blow your mind? No.
Pros: Solidly built, good screen and excellent audio., Pro: Solidly built, very attractive, good screen and excellent audio.
Cons: Shows fingerprints like crazy, a bit long when opened., Con: Shows fingerprints like crazy, a bit long when opened.
Conclusion: After some time with the device, Style really is a good name for the 9670. As is often the case with stylish, things they usually lack in substance, and the BlackBerry Style 9670 is no exception. For those more concerned with a cute, flip phone, the Style is a very good, functional option.
Pros: The flip form-factor is done well this time around, Great keyboard, Crisp display, Good call quality
Cons: Camera and video performance is lacking, Web browser is still sub-par
Summary: If you like the clamshell design and you want a messaging phone that can do more, the Style is a solid choice for $99. With its relatively snappy performance and a good camera, this device is one of the best mid-range offerings on Sprint. In fact, in some ways the Style is more satisfying than the $199 Torch on AT&T because you don't have to contend with a sluggish touch interface.
Conclusion: Es un teléfono ideal para quienes buscan estar siempre a la vanguardia en cuanto a tecnología se refiere. Seguramente complacerá a los amantes del buen diseño, además de que sus herramientas para redes sociales, así como su cámara y el navegador GPS complementan la experiencia en la que parece no faltar nada.
Pros: Diseño práctico, teclado QWERTY y la pantalla externa muestra mucha información; cuenta con receptor GPS y entrada estándar de audífonos.
