Default white?

I guess that's cool for chicks!
Like a friend of mine got a pair of white shades.
Even his best buddy said, wear your hat with those man!

White?

Please don't tell me RIM are going to 'do an Apple'. By that I mean keep releasing the same thing, just in different colours to exploit a loyal market of customers. Roll on the Zune!!!!!!

How exactly are they exploiting people by giving them a choice?

It's more a gripe about how Apple made the decision to release the same MP3 player in a load of new colours an 1mm thinner, instead of actually building new features like an FM radio in - which is what everyone else is doing. I'm just a bit anti Apple at the mo!!!!

Well......when you think of a pearl, you do think of white pearls don't you? You hardly ever see black pearls. It would give it kind of a sissy look though....no offense to any sissies

Not that the illuminating trackball would have anything to do with the name, of course.

But seriously, see any difference in this versus what they did for the 7100, 7290, 8700, etc? Another market, another case, another color scheme... just a bit mroe contrasting this time around, obviously.

I can see it now: your wife gets a white one, then your daughter goes nuts over it and your wife gets one for her too, and changes to a huge 3000 minute family plan. Whatever you do don't go away on a trip or it'll be all different when you get back.

Am I the only one who finds it just a little bit suspicious that this first-ever exclusive scoop comes from a first-time poster?

What day is it today? I could have sworn it was April 1st...

I wouldn't be surprized if RIM hops on the full-on charity-color phone... It'd be cool to see a (product)RED version of the Pearl, plus a barbie-pink one for Breast Cancer.
Maybe an Aerosmith branded 8800 :D

I think since they are trying to make the pearl more appealing to the average everyday consumer a colored pearl would help there but I think 8700/8800 type devices need to stay one solid color with maybe shades (IE verizon black tmo dark blue etc).

totally agree .

Pearl can pretty much look cool on any color, but a pink or red 8700 will look Fugly!
