It’s an intriguing phone.. my gf is up for renewal on Bell, and this phone seems to be spec’d pretty well and cheap on a contract. I haven’t heard too much about it though.
i even considered it before going with the Torch

The Style is nice, i dont have one but I have used one a few times.
It has a very solid feeling.
It runs OS6 really well.
Think of it as a flip 9780.
The outside display rocks too.
Remember you have 15 days to return it if she doesnt like it.

Yeah it looks very well-speced for a phone that’s the same price as the curve 9300 here pretty much. external screen is handy too

Its somewhat of a sleeper since RIM didn’t do much promoting of it, certainly a far more quiet launch than the Torch even though both are OS6 and could have been promoted along side each other. That said, I have heard good things about it. I haven’t used it but no of several who own one.January 13, 2011 at 3:13 AM #183465
Yeah i kind of scoffed at the initial pics that came out when it was announced, it looked kind of cheesey. but on further inspection, sounds like a decent device for those that like flipphones. i actually have fond memories of the original pearl flip, even if it did feel a bit flimsy

Yeah, the pearl was around for so long and was quite popular because there are still people out there who use their phone for email only and don’t need or continually upgrade to the newest high-end Blackberry every time a new one comes out as some people do. They want a phone that can make calls and give them access to email, maybe they occasionally use the camera, but the other features don’t matter and aren’t worth the price increase to them (remember, there were times when carriers actually had a selection of free phones to chose from, now its slim pickins as the prices keep going higher). I for one, consider myself an enthusiast but I couldn’t tell you what mega pixel camera I have on my 9700, I hardly use it.
The Style will be a competitive option for RIM in that lower-end smartphone market. Affordable, makes calls, decent specs.January 13, 2011 at 4:07 AM #183467
speaking of the pearl.. my friend got a pearl 3g, and i actually quite like it.. i steered him away from the 9300 because the pearl is actually better spec’d minus the suretype keypad.. basically a 9700 in mini form!January 13, 2011 at 4:12 AM #183468
Agreed, and I think with the 3g, a lot of people who started out on the Pearl will move right onto the Pearl 3G. A lot of people also like the candybar form.January 13, 2011 at 4:25 AM #183469
yes a very nice form factor, with a sharp screen to bootJanuary 22, 2011 at 1:59 AM #183470
According to N4BB, the next style may have a touchscreen too!Quote:One of our sources let us know that RIM has been testing out a BlackBerry Style with a touchscreen for the next possible iteration of the 9670. It isn’t clear if both displays will be touch interactive or solely the main, larger display. We’ve also heard that RIM was playing around with a dual-hinged prototype. This would give the BlackBerry Style2 the option to ‘flip open’ from clamshell into portrait or landscape. We’re not sure how this would have worked with the keypad when moving from different orientations, but it sounds cool.
I’m happy RIM is hopping on the touchscreen bandwagon. It seems to be something that attracts alot of users..January 22, 2011 at 2:34 AM #183471
i’d settle for the Style to be a GSM phone. It doesn’t even have to be touchscreen! ok, that’s not quite true. the touchscreen piece is intriguing
