BlackBerry Style officially announced for Sprint in the USA


We wont be seeing this one anytime soon here in the UK, if at all. The BlackBerry style is a CDMA device and will be exclusive to Sprint. An acquired taste this one I think.

Over in the States 100 million people use a flip phone so it kind of makes sense for RIM to come up with this design which is there first BlackBerry flip with a full QWERTY on board. The Style is also the first CDMA device to launch with BlackBerry 6.

The BlackBerry Style rocks the 5 megapixel camera found in the Torch and also has GPS and Wi-Fi. 512MB of internal memory are there to power BlackBerry 6 and a 8GB memory card comes in the box for media. You also get a choice of two colours – Steel Gray and Royal Purple.

I would love to get my hands on one of these but I fear that will not happen.

Windows Phone 7 advert – Video


If you have not seen the latest Windows Phone 7 advert on the television you can do so after the break. The advert very much takes the mickey out of other platforms, in particular BlackBerry, insinuating we are heavily engrossed in our phones and WP7 will make life easier for us. Me, engrossed with my BlackBerry? Surely not!

Anyway, from what we have seen of the new operating system it may well be quick and easy for us too complete a task but so much quicker than other OS’s? Nor sure about that one.

We should see the first of the Windows Phone 7 review devices rolling out this week so keep your eyes peeled for videos etc.
