Today T-Mobile added to their current BlackBerry line a few new colors to choose from, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 in Fuchsia Red and the Bold 9700 in Flash White. So for those of you wanting a little flavor with your BlackBerry today is your lucky day. However, in my opinion it just adds one more strike against RIM and their BlackBerry devices, adding different colors to their product line, and devices that are in the later stages of their lives. Give us some actual innovation RIM, Please! I digress, for the full announcement click through the jump.
Today, T-Mobile announces two new color finishes for the T-Mobile BlackBerry family – the BlackBerry Curve 8520 – Fuchsia Red and the BlackBerry Bold 9700 with Wi-Fi Calling – Flash White.
