Video- BlackBerry OS 6.0 & BlackBerry Clamshell 9670 Hardware

BlackBerry_ClamShell_9670

With the iPhone 4 officially announced by Apple, what we have from RIM in terms of recently released BlackBerry models are the Bold 9650 and Pearl 3G. Well, if these BlackBerry models are not for you and you are looking for a change with flip BlackBerry devices, (you really liked the old BlackBerry Pearl 8220) you’ll like this video showing unreleased BlackBerry Clamshell 9670. What is more interesting with BlackBerry Clamshell is the early release of BlackBerry OS 6 running on it. Check out the video shown below put together by Driphter.com.

As for as the Bold 9670 specs are concerned, it has a 5MP camera, 512mb of Device Memory, built in functionality for touch screen options, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth a 480 x 360 inside screen, external display, microUSB port and microSD card slot.

Over to OS 6.0, and Driphter confirms the customizable icons on the home screen, plus the addition of the new search tool on the top. Main differences between OS 6.0 and OS 5.0 appear to be the refreshed contacts and media player aesthetics; message categorization lets you color friends and families’ emails so you know who’s emailed just by a quick look. Twitter and YouTube apps are included as standard, apparently.

I am not impressed with any of these BlackBerry 9670 and OS 6.0 as of yet just looking at the video. May be because the OS 6 is still in early beta and Bold 9670 has to go a long way in terms of design esthetic and properly utilizing good amount of hardware and keyboard real estate but what I really like is having a choice of getting a BlackBerry device in many different form factors and style as compared to just one standard iPhone. What are your views on Bold 9670?
