BlackBerry Style 9670 and red BlackBerry Torch 9800 headed to Bell

Just in case all the talk of the BlackBerry Bold 9780 releasing in Canada was driving you crazy because what you really want is red BlackBerry Torch or BlackBerry Style then this news may be more to your liking. It seems as though both the red Torch and BlackBerry Style will be shipped off to Bell locations across Canada starting on November 15th with device purchasing going live on November 23rd.

The red Torch is suggested to cost $179.99 with a 3-year contract while the BlackBerry Style retail price is said to be $399.99. The contract pricing for the Style at this point was not available. Which would drop the cost to something a little more realistic with contract terms but I'm sure that will pop up soon enough.

Is Bell a CDMA or GSM carrier? I know at least one person who is on at&t (GSM) that wants this phone.


Bell has both networks, the 9780 runs on their HSPA network and the Style will run on their old CDMA network, so their version will also not work on AT&T.


Thanks. That's what I thought, but just wanted to verify.


to play around with the new flip phone.. it was interesting.. the keyboard was very functional and all, but the thing that I really didnt like was the fact that the screen it tilted when it's open.. I know it's a flip phone, but that would be a deal breaker for me. The size of it when closed was nice and compact.


Why does bell never get white blackberrys!! grrrr


will the style ever come out on a gsm network like at&t?


I'm thinking about buying a style on the bell network(switching from my tour) ... But I know my retailer is not receiving any.. Is it possible to order a phone and just pop in my sim card and use it on my cdma network(also bell...but in northern canada)?


This red Torch look amazing! I wish they had it on Rogers in canada.
