BlackBerry Style 9670: A Bold, Curve, Pearl Hybrid?

By Updated on

Earlier today we posted an article showing Engadget’s hands-on time with the BlackBerry Style 9670, in Engadget’s article they mention that this device seems like a cross between three popular RIM smartphones, we wondered whether you thought this was a winning formula.

Let’s start with the obvious, the BlackBerry Style 9670 has the same form-factor as the early BlackBerry Pearl Flip handsets, however when you open it up there is no SureType keypad, instead there is a full QWERTY keyboard which is very similar to the one the BlackBerry Bold 9700 features.

Finally the build quality and overall feel is said to be similar to the BlackBerry Curve models, perhaps this is one drawback as in my opinion the Curve has a cheap plasticly feel, whereas the Bold 9700 has a more solid build quality.

The BlackBerry Style 9670 is headed for Sprint, therefore we wondered what you thought of this ‘hybrid’ device, do you think that it will all come together nicely? Or do you think it will be a disappointment?
