Perfect for the fashion-forward professional on the go? Is that the same fashion-forward professional that takes notes in the boardroom with a pink pen with fuzzy stuff on the top?

I see a pink phone and I think of Legally Blonde.

I'll stick with my silver 8830 with the black rubberized cover. Thanks anyway.

I will have to test the new red 8830 as soon as it gets here. Interested to see if the keys are more visible in the dark than on the silver.
