BlackBerry Style 9670


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...

Excellent voice quality ; Practical, compact clamshell design ; Full QWERTY keyboard ; Respectable 5-megapixel camera ; Speedy OS navigation ; Sharp, bright interior and exterior screens ; Affordable

Poor camera placement ; Spotty Wi-Fi reception ; Only shoots VGA video ; Slow, clumsy browser ; So-so battery life

BlackBerry’s Style 9670 folds the RIM’s legendary messaging abilities into a compact, stylish package that does what a phone needs to do, and then some.

BlackBerry Style 9670 (black, Boost Mobile)


The BlackBerry Style marks RIM's second-ever handset to ship with BlackBerry OS 6 (the first was the BlackBerry Torch), and it's also the first BlackBerry to have both a clamshell design and a full QWERTY keyboard. RIM has experimented with a flip...

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

The Style's square design may be a bit bulky for some users, and the keyboard is a touch too flat for our tastes

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.

Research In Motion BlackBerry Style Phone Review - PCWorld


The Surround is a solid Windows Phone 7 phone with a regrettable "boom box" gimmick.

Blackberry Style 9670


This BlackBerry 6 smart phone delivers a fashionable design and social networking features for an affordable price.

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...

BlackBerry Style 9670 (Boost Mobile)


The Boost version also lacks Sprint's various multimedia apps, including Sprint TV and the Sprint Music Store. You still get TeleNav GPS Navigator, which offers voice-enabled, turn-by-turn directions for $9.99 per month. Speaking of pricing, while the...

Nifty flip form factor. Great voice quality. Strong reception. Cheaper plan prices than with the Sprint version

Short battery life. Pitiful app store. Few decent apps available

As Research In Motion's lineup continues to age, the BlackBerry Style may be the nicest way yet to enjoy the platform; we're particularly fond of Boost Mobile's inexpensive plan prices.

BlackBerry Style 9670 (Sprint)


The BlackBerry Style for Sprint is the best flip smartphone you can find right now, and it's a pretty terrific messaging phone all around. It's unusual to find flip-style smartphones, and many of the ones we do see aren't great. Hence the name, the...

Great build quality. BlackBerry 6 OS. Excellent voice quality

External screen doesn't do enough. Weak selection of apps. Keyboard is a bit flat for a BlackBerry

The BlackBerry Style is a terrific flip messaging phone for Sprint, though it doesn't offer the app selection of other top smartphone platforms.

Unboxing and First Impressions: BlackBerry Style 9670 (Boost Mobile)


We were kindly provided a Boost BlackBerry Style for review by Boost Mobile's PR agency this month and I've been using it as my primary phone instead of my E71. My full review won't go up until this weekend, but here are a few things that I've been...

Review: BlackBerry Style 9670


RIM creates a BlackBerry clamshell that could beat the Curve.

Clever external display ; Surprisingly good 5MP camera ; Responsive, comfortable keyboard ; Bright main display ; BB6 a major boost to web accuracy and more ; Price is right if on a cheap plan

Short battery life ; Android and iPhone more advanced for the price ; App store, browser, maps not quite up to par ; So-so call quality

Design and the secondary displayThe Style in many ways feels like a wide version of the short-lived Pearl Flip, although that's not a bad thing here. In the pocket, the clamshell isn't practically larger than its ancestor and is very easy to pul

Review: BlackBerry Style 9670 (Sprint) review


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...

Solid industrial design, good call quality, decent battery life

Low resolution display, awkward while taking pictures, so-so keyboard

We have a more in-depth look on how the BlackBerry 6 operating system works as part of our BlackBerry Torch 9800 review. For the most part, it's very consistent with that, though you can't simply tap the screen to interact with menus or objects....
