I still say as I did weeks ago....why not just create cases for the phone and not put out a new phone with a different color.

If RIM did that, then they couldn't make the new phone sales. Yeah, if they market the cases, they will get those sales initially, but pretty soon, there will be numerous aftermarket rip-offs (which isn't a bad thing), that would be taking most of those case profits. All in all it adds up to a numbers game. RIM is doing what every corporation does, looking out for its profits (again, not a bad thing).
But for now, anyone who wants a different color pearl will have to buy a new one, paint their existing one, or get a colored hard case to go over their existing one (which I wouldn't mind doing for mine).

Well, assuming I won't get bashed here in the forums for saying this, but I'm a lesbian (femme) and I've never heard of purple being a lesbian color. The only colors I'm aware of are the black upside-down triangle and the rainbow flag.

As for a "purple"berry, it all depends on the shade of the purple. If it's a deep flat purple, then yes; a pastel fruity purple, then no.

Actually purple is traditionally considered a color of royalty.

And since we all know (at least I do from growing up picking REAL blackberries all my childhood-OUCH) that blackberries really are purple in color... I think a "purple blackberry" is ridiculous... keep it black. At least the one I have does not stain my hands and make my arms itch every time I pick it up.

Absolutely correct. Purple was a highly sought after color especially in Greek and Roman antiquity. This originated from Tyrian purple which was obtained from a marine snail in the Mediterranean by the Phoenicians. Here is an example of the purple of antiquity:

After the collapse of the Western Roman Empire in AD 476 Western Roman Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia it went into disuse. After this imperial (royal) purple became bluer in hue.

This shift was due in large part to imperial blue worn by the aristocracy.
