OMG, it's PURPLE. I may have to get one just for the color.

And in black too .

Thanks for posting. Only a 2.0 Megapixel camera, that's kind of a bummer but the trackpad and WiFi are nice additions.

Yea, I wouldn't want to take a step back from the 3.2MP that I have on my Tour.

Perhaps a nice 'first phone' for my daughter's birthday in March She'd flip.

Purple is bold color indeed, I am excited though! I want a new blackberry :(

Wish they come out with a orange or red!

I have the Lavender 8520, looks like that but lighter.

I hate girly looking phones, but I like the colour purple a lot so I chose this as my first blackberry, as well as all the info I read on it being a good starter bb. I bet your daughter would love it!

What young girl doesn't want a cute coloured smartphone?

Have you heard back from your account team whether it's Rev 0 or Rev A? Some sites say 0 and some say A. Not gonna get it if it's Rev 0. Why in the world would RIM go with Rev 0??

Thanks!
