The phone is carried by Sprint and shall be available at an attractive price of $99 along with a 2 year contract. There are two colors to pick from – one royal purple and another steel grey. There are a good number of women owning a Blackberry. So the royal purple is probably targeted at them.

The phone has the characteristic QWERTY keyboard and runs on Blackberry OS 6. Storage is not huge with only an 8GB memory card. Other features include GPS, Wi-Fi and support for Open GL for 3D graphics.
