BlackBerry Style

The BlackBerry Style, is BBs flip phone. Closed, the phone is about four inches long by two and a half inches wide. It is about half an inch thick. Open, it is a full seven inches long. It has a 360×440 internal display and a 240×320 internal display.

OS 6 adds a few features to the phone including integration with RSS feeds and social networks as well as a faster, Webkit-based browser and universal search that also connects to the Interwebs for data. The phone has a 624MHz processor that allows for a performance boost when it comes to common tasks including video playback.

It has 512MB onboard memory and includes an 8GB memory card. It supports GPS as well as Blackberry Messenger and, because OS 6 is touch-oriented, it depends on a touch sensitive “trackpad” on the front to interact with the icons and browser.

The Style isn’t RIM’s first flip phone. If you cast your mind back to the Pearl Flip you’ll recall that the Canadians once, a long time ago, tried to turn the BB into a more friendly-looking phone.

It is clear that this isn’t for the average BB user. First, the fact that you need to flip it open points to a user less intent on reading email. The value of the standard BB line is that your email is always available. There is no muss, no fuss, nothing to open or close. With the Style you’re adding a step to the process.

Therefore the Style is clearly for someone who wants a BB without the old-fashioned “lump of keyboard” look and feel.
