New BlackBerry Slated for Sprint, Halloween Release Report

It looks like youll be able to scare up” a new BlackBerry smartphone this Halloween.

Boy Genius Report got its hands on a slide from one of its solid Sprint guys,” which appears to show the new BlackBerry Oxford will be introduced on Oct. 31. Its a Sprint exclusive thatll set you back $99.99 after the $100 mail-in rebate, and of course, the obligatory two-year service agreement.

Key features include:

  • BlackBerry 6 OS
  • 5MP camera with flash/camcorder
  • Full QWERTY keyboard with track-pad interface
  • Wi-Fi and GPS-capable
  • Visual voice mail

While Research In Motion has seen market share for its BlackBerry phones decline in recent months, the company might be looking to compete the old-fashioned way: lower prices. $100 isnt bad considering most smartphones with these capabilities start at about $200.
