In this age of smartphones with big touch screens, it doesn’t seem possible that an old-school flip phone would garner much interest, but that’s not the case with the new BlackBerry Style.

The external display shows all messaging at a glance, and the internal display is a nice screen for the BlackBerry 6 operating system.
