BlackBerry 9670 clamshell coming to Sprint soon, not a Verizon exclusive?

Published Aug 17th, 2010 9:44AM EDT

While we had heard that the BlackBerry 9670 — you might remember its first public appearance — was created solely for Verizon Wireless as an exclusive, that all seems to have changed. We have independently confirmed that the BlackBerry 9670 clamshell will be hitting Sprint in the next “couple months.” Additionally, multiple sources have confirmed with us that they are in possession of Sprint-branded BlackBerry 9670 devices. We are not sure on an actual launch date, but we’re thinking it can’t be too far off now that units are in the wild.
