The BlackBerry Style 9670 is an impressive little device. It proved useful, reliable, and even has — dare I say it — style.
The clamshell form factor grew on me very quickly, especially given the usefulness of the external screen.
RIM proves with the this smartphone that it still can deliver an innovative new device rather than just a refresh of a proven model. Seasoned pros and BlackBerry newbies alike will both find a lot to like about the Style.
- Stylish clamshell design
- External display very useful
- BlackBerry OS 6.0 brings refreshed apps
- Occasional lags in performance
- Casing collects enough fingerprints to provide a permanent record
- Awkward angle when taking head-on pictures, so-so camera.
