If you thought flip-open designs were obsolescent, you've not been talking to the 100 million US consumers who currently use a phone with a flip. That's one of the reasons Research In Motion has created the BlackBerry Style 9670, a 'flip smartphone' with a full QWERTY keyboard. The BlackBerry Style also features the new BlackBerry 6 operating system, an optical trackpad, a 5 megapixel camera, WiFi, GPS and an expandable memory. There are two displays; a smaller screen on the outside and a larger non-touchscreen 360x400 pixel screen inside.
Customers on the Sprint network will be able to preorder the phone from tomorrow; it'll be available from 31st October. There's currently no mention of a European version.
