BlackBerry Oxford (aka Style) 9670 Launching October 31st


I had my bets down that RIM was going to officially announce the BlackBerry 9670 (Also known as the Oxford and Style) during CTIA but they never did. Now the BoyGenius has information on the devices launch pegging it for a October 31st launch as a Sprint Exclusive!

It has been awhile since Sprint has gotten a BlackBerry exclusive so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. This is especially the case in light of the recent rumors of the BlackBerry Storm2 refresh being cancelled on Verizon. According to the leaked slide the BlackBerry Oxford will launch in Gray on October 31st and a Purple version is “coming soon.”

Nothing else really crazy new other than an included 8GB MicroSDHC card and a price of $99.99 after rebates on a new contract. So will you be running to pick up a 9670?

  1. More evidence Verizon is rapidly losing interest in all things BlackBerry?

    • While I think you are correct, in a sense, Verizon definitely is losing their love for BlackBerry and riding the Android train…I think this actually has more to do with the fact that this is one horrible-looking device. There are many people, like myself, who would have jumped onto the Android wave quite some time ago if I could find an Android device that had a physical keyboard even remotely close to the feel of a BlackBerry. Since I can not, I stay with my BlackBerry.

      It is obvious that touchscreen devices are becoming more and more accepted by the masses. I think a lot of that has to do with just the sheer size of the screen. Let’s face it, as much as I enjoy my BlackBerry Bold 9650 – the screen size is fairly tiny compared to the Torch, iPhone and several Android devices and I would kill for the Torch solely for its larger screen.

      We all know that AT&T has the Torch locked down for a while. I think RIM really messed up by making this 9670 flip phone. They should have just pushed out another traditional style (think 9650) device with beefed-up specifications and BlackBerry 6.

      If it weren’t for their iron-tight grasp on the Enterprise domain, RIM would probably be singing the blues along with Palm. Their ideas of “beefing-up” devices is laughable. But, that is another issue altogether.

  2. Only $100 with contract is cheaper then expected…

  3. This device is ugly!
