The odd flip-up screen is a bit too much for die-hard Blackberry users. - John Biggs, TechCrunch

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. In fact, once you flip open the Style, you get an immediate sense of “being at home” if you are a long-time BlackBerry user, due in part to the sculpted keys, the familiar and proprietary “send”, “end” keys, along with the dedicated BlackBerry menu button.

The internal screen boasts a 360 x 480 pixel display resolution, with a series of tabbed options running along the bottom. It’s a BlackBerry for sure. Running BlackBerry OS 6.0 with 512MB of built-in RAM and offering expandable memory via miscroSD and microSDHC up to 32GB, this is not your average flip. Not even close.

And yes, BB fans, you get a 3.5mm headphone jack input, an excellent 5MP camera with LED flash and video record, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, even tethering capability.

Make no mistake; this little flip is a BlackBerry true and true. RIM appears to be expanding its inventory to include a sharp, powerful flip. And it’s called the Style.

Half flip phone, half smartphone but 100% stylish

from Pocket-lint (over 3 years ago)

Overall, the BlackBerry Style is an excellent choice for BlackBerry users looking for a phone with reliable hardware, excellent voice features and basic web computing capabilities. Running on 0S 6, it has similar speed to its touchscreen cousin, the Torch, but in the flip smartphone form factor. It’s... More

It is durable and user friendly, and easy to type on

from Mobile Syrup (over 3 years ago)

Overall, the Blackberry Style is a fresh and different expansion of RIM’s already strong Blackberry line of devices. With a larger focus on the business sector, it is nice to see that RIM is still aware of the generic consumer market, and looking to expand to the average messaging and smartphone... More

The Style is a solid messaging device that BlackBerry fans will likely enjoy

from MobileBurn (over 3 years ago)

The BlackBerry Style 9670 is Sprint's first BlackBerry, and the second in the United States (the Torch 9800 on AT&T was the first), to run Research In Motion's new BlackBerry 6 operating system. It also features a unique clamshell form factor that packs in a full QWERTY keyboard. On Sprint, it... More

It’s definitely aimed at consumers and it doesn’t have much of a place in the enterprise market

from BGR (over 3 years ago)

For the younger crowd already hooked on BBM and RIM’s famous BlackBerry keyboards, the Style is a great option. Add to that Sprint’s solid network and extremely competitive rate plans, and you’re good to go. On the other hand, those who are looking for a modern, streamlined smartphone... More

The Blackberry Style can be just as good and just as polarizing

from TechCrunch (over 3 years ago)

The Style has its own specific style, not unlike a homestyle TV dinner. Many of us love TV dinners – the brownie, the little lump of mashed potatoes, the Salisbury steak. And many of us don’t. The Blackberry Style can be just as good – and just as polarizing.

The BlackBerry Style may be lacking in many areas, but for the less demanding smartphone user it is definitely worth a look

from PhoneArena (over 3 years ago)

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. For the... More

It does everything the Bold does, but differently

from Phone Scoop (over 3 years ago)

The Style is a solid effort from RIM. It gets all the basics right. Battery life is epic, call quality is good, data speeds are acceptable, and the screens get the job done. BlackBerries still aren't the media monsters that Android and iOS devices are, but that's not what they focus on. Most users... More

Some flaws, Overall good phone

(over 3 years ago)

The first flaw would be if you can send fast messages/and if you will sent a lot of messages it is harder because you have to flip is open, but some people like the flip idea of the phone. Overall I think this is a very good phone and it is mostly so looks but also for younger kids.

Telus pulls another boner!!!

(over 3 years ago)

The Style may have been a good phone but Telus (Tell Everyone Lies Useless Service) has chosen to cripple it as it has with all the Blackberry models they carry. Namely no picture messaging, no video messaging and no games! Check out Bell’s website they say theirs is fully functional.

The 9670 Style is a great choice...

(over 3 years ago)

If you're a text-savvy, BBMing, on-the-go kind of person who enjoys being able to reach in your pocket, pull out your phone, do your thing, and then shove it back into your pocket - this phone is a great choice for you. The clamshell design of the BlackBerry 9670 Style allows users to just clap... More
