We have been hearing rumors for a while now that RIM is to introduce a clamshell BlackBerry device, thankfully BGR now has some updated details on this worst-kept secret handset. The BlackBerry 9670 is not the first clamshell, but we have tried to forget about the Pearl.
BGR offers to us the first photos of the device, which you can see by visiting their website. You will also be aware by our recent post that the 9670 runs on OS 6.0, which we explained to you in more detail yesterday. So can we now class this as the first true BlackBerry Flip?
The handset offers a 5 megapixel camera, that’s much better than most RIM handsets, you get the ever-popular trackpad, microUSB port for external storage is a microSD card slot. The internal screen offers a display of 360 Ã— 480 and packs Wi-Fi.
This is to be a CDMA handset, so could either go to Verizon or Sprint, the smart money would be on the former. Head over to Boy Genius Report now from the link above, not only will you see the first photos, but they are working on a video as well.
