BlackBerry Style 9670 Hits Sprint 10/31 as the $100 Oxford?
Sprint appears poised to release the BlackBerry Style 9670 full-QWERTY flip phone as the BlackBerry Oxford on October 31st for $100 after rebates, according to an authentic-looking slide published by BGR. We had previously seen shots of this OS 6-powered, dual-screen device bearing Sprint branding, and also heard that it would head to Telus in early November, but this is the first semi-concrete pricing/release info we’ve yet had for the Style.
Thanks to a full hands-on by Mexican site PoderPDA, we already knew most of the features laid out in the specs section: five-megapixel camera with flash, WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS, and HVGA and QVGA internal and external LCD displays, respectively. What we did not know for sure were color schemes, which have now apparently been revealed as grey (at launch) and purple (“coming soon”).
We’re still waiting on more evidence of the Style landing at Verizon as well.
