Enterprise Mobility: BlackBerry Style 9670 for Sprint Shows Flip Phone a Fitting Form for BlackBerry
The BlackBerry Style 9670 for Sprint, the second smartphone from RIM running the new Blackberry 6 OS, is the first BlackBerry flip phone with a full, four-row QWERTY keyboard. The clamshell flip phone design is sturdy and polished, an attractive form factor seemingly fitting for a BlackBerry. Unfortunately, the Style does not support Sprint's 4G WiMax network, instead offering 3G EVDO Rev A and 802.11n for connectivity. The Style comes with two low resolution screensan external screen showing the clock, waiting message indicators, callerID information or media information when the Style is closedand an internal screen for normal operation when open. Sacrificing some flexibility, the Style only has one convenience key, as RIM eschewed a second button in favor of an externally accessible (theoretically, at least) MicroSD slot.
