Turn Ideas into Action!

An Evolution in Flip
Whatever you love about flip phones, stick with it. Because now, we've brought all the power of BlackBerry® to the style you prefer. The external screen means you've got details at a glance - so you can see who's calling and preview incoming messages while you get on with your day. The internal display gives you the same full screen view that comes with other full QWERTY BlackBerry smartphones: it's huge, bright and easy on the eyes. You've got a full QWERTY BlackBerry keyboard to work with and smooth optical trackpad to navigate your way.
Better than ever with BlackBerry 6
Talk about simple setup with the BlackBerry Style. You'll breeze through it, and right away, your smartphone begins to recognize your preferences. Graphical menus welcome you and intuitive navigation gives you the freedom to explore with ease. While you're at it, catch up on your social networking updates in one view with social feeds. You get all the features you're after, plus fantastic web browsing and multimedia experiences - so you can access the content you want without messing around. Speaking of saving time: with universal search, you can comb through everything on your smartphone - and even launch a web search - instantly.
The full power of BlackBerry
Looking for something? Our new universal search scans your folders, apps, internet,3 email and more, all in one search and doesn't stop until it finds what you're looking for. With universal search, you can get things done right.
Connect in real-time, anytime on BBM
When you want the comfort that comes with a real-time connection to your friends and family, you need BBMTM. Whether you're planning a night out, a weekend away or just touching base, BBM is your instant connection to all the key people in your life. It's an amazing way to take real-time communications to the next level. Plus, you'll always know what's up at the other end: a "D" appears on your screen when a message is delivered and an "R" appears when it's read so you're never left hanging.
All media, all the time
Carry, watch and share your videos, pictures, files and more. With BlackBerry 6, we've completely overhauled the multimedia experience on your BlackBerry smartphone. With the ability to sync music over Wi-Fi® using BlackBerry Media Sync, you can now access your home music library right from your BlackBerry smartphone. Scrolling through your music is as easy as swiping through your album art. And you can watch and subscribe to podcasts that are pushed to you as soon as they're available. Plus, with 8GB of memory to store all kinds of files, killing time could turn into a killer idea.
Multitasking made easy
Multitasking is another one of those things that BlackBerry® smartphones have been doing right, from the beginning. You can jump between applications in a flash. And thanks to a little piece of magic we call multi-connectivity, your apps can stay connected whether you're using them or not. So whatever you're up to, emails, messages, updates, and notifications can keep coming through. And it all happens using less of your battery life. So go ahead, do it all - at once.
Get personal with it
Get inspired with a variety of apps designed just for BlackBerry smartphones from BlackBerry App WorldTM and put your ideas into action. Express your own personal style with custom ring tones, notifications, wallpapers and themes. Finally, dress it all up with BlackBerry Style Authentic Accessories like headsets and cases.

BlackBerry Style Features and Specifications


I'm still not feeling the look of this device. I will have to see it in person, because in most of these photos it still looks ugly.

you took the words right out of my mouth.......specs wise, i think it might be the best blackberry out

The battery is pitiful, the camera is par for what is offered by other BlackBerry devices, as is the memory. It's screen may be bigger than the Bold 9000's but it has a worse resolution.

The video camera is still bad, and the processor is the same 624 mhz they've been using for close to 2 years.

In fact, besides more memory (512 mb) and more megapixels (5.0), this phone is as powerful as my Bold 9000.

I don't know about you, but more and more RIM is trying to be "jack of all trades, master of none".

Sure they boast a lot of features, but they are behind in nearly every single category of smartphone now. Want to know why BlackBerry app world is a fail? Because we are limited by app memory. If they allowed apps to be stored on SD cards like many other companies do, blackberry app world would be decent.

Sure the flip is nice to have, but this phone should have at least a 1550 MaH battery, at least an 7.2 MP camera, higher resolution screens, at least 1 gb ram because OS 6 takes close to 220 mb+, and at least an 800 mhz or above processor.

Anyone who has used a Torch will tell you just how bad the 624 mhz processor is now. It was amazing in 2008, in 2010 not so much. Also, why keep putting inferior batteries in? They used a 1550 MaH for the original Bold and Bold 9700 and now they've gone down to 1150 and 1350 Mah batteries despite OS 6 being so intensive. You can see for yourself how bad the battery life is on the Torch.

And soon, the Bold 9780 will release with nothing more than a simple megapixel and memory upgrade.

Well, I for one can't support yoru claims - I use my Torch extensively and the speed of the 624 Mhz processor is perfectly acceptable. I experience no lag in any of the apps that I use on a regular basis, including the browser. Sure, the speed of the processor is important, but more important is how well the app is written. A poorly written app on a blazing fast processor may actualy perform slower than a tight, well written app on a much slower processor, and the BB apps are well written!

Oh - and may battery life is fine, thank-you. No worse than my previous Blackberry device.

My wife loves three things about her phone. It's a BlackBerry.. it's a flip... and it's on Verizon. I'm very disappoineted with her that it's not coming to big red.

360x400??? I reckon it has the same CPU as the 9700 also. So basically this is the 9700s ugly fat sister.

and are we suppose to see specs of the upcoming playbook w/QNX and then this fugly turd of a product and believe they're from the same company????

I think people ought to recognize that there are other markets out there aside from the elitist techno-nerd willing to shell out big bucks. There's a huge market of non-smartphone users out there... many of them like the flip-phone for it's rugged reliability. If RIM can tap into this market with a less expensive flip bb with os6, don't you think that's a good thing?

Mannn where the F is the 9780! I'm not from canada sheesh...att got torch and pearl 3G, sprint got the style, verzion got so much money they turned the storm refresh and what tmobile have? Nothing this old 8900 which was discontinued entirely and the 9700. Neither exclusive. Why not we get the storm 2 refresh I bet tmobile carriers would be content with that. But no we getting a 9780 that's been out for months in 2011 it seems and that's it lol. No fancy ads or anything. Waitn 4 the 9780 while writting this on my 8900. So sad. Att got 3 or 4 bb's in last 2 months. Tmobile got 0! 9780 better be packing more than 512mb like the torch. Well enough b*tching lol

T-mobile will come with a phone soon. The storm 2 technically was on t-mobile. If you get a t-mobile phone from anywhere globally it will work with a t-mobile sim. I was using a t-mobile uk storm 2 for the longest and i was with t-mobile usa. I recently switched to at&t because of signal issues. T-mobile is more open to phone than at&t. Trust me i know.

I know I use the left-side convenience key for Vlingo, leaving the right side for camera or Quick Launch. Dropping the left-side key doesn't make sense to me.

I know my wife will be getting one - no more purse-dialing!

there seems to be enough weight and thickness for the base of the flip to actually hold it comfortably whilst typing and the screen seems big enough to handle most things on a mobile device - it's no brick and that's a good thing.

not every phone needs to have touch and the great thin about flips is you dont have that accidental phone dialing that can occur on other phones.

OH'd I miss THAT...ONE convenience key...NO media button on top (like my 8530) 1xEV NOT 3G/Berrys (8530) is something I'll have to live with on my NEXT BB...but I MUST have 2 con. keys!! AND why ANY Sprint phone is NON 4G is besides me
