BlackBerry 9670 clamshell: Rumored Verizon Exclusive

By Jamie Pert - Apr 27, 2010

The spotlight has been firmly fixed on the BlackBerry Pearl 3G and Bold 9650 since the announcement from RIM yesterday, but BlackBerry users are still intrigued by the company’s upcoming clamshell – the BlackBerry 9670 which is rumored to be a Verizon exclusive.

According to a post at SlashGear, they say that apparently the network specifically requested that the phone be made for them for exclusive use on their network, but there is no information regarding the release in Europe as partner carrier Vodafone have not confirmed or denied that they are offering a GSM version.

Specifics we can confirm though, is that it does infact come with a 5-megapixel camera and flash, with the standard offering of WiFi. The device is scheduled to be released with OS 6.0, which is not expected to be released until Q3 2010 which gives us an idea that the release date of the phone could be around Q4 2010.
