Sprint gets the red BlackBerry 8130 while Verizon gets the pink version

I rarely, if ever, write about news concerning operators because frankly they don’t matter anymore. Like you could care less which company maintains your electricity or which company is responsible for your water, I could care less who is giving me service. I choose the cheapest with the best coverage and let that be that. Operator differentiation happens in little cute ways that slap logic in the face and today I present you the BlackBerry 8130. It is known as the Pearl 2, has a 3.5 mm headphone jack, microSD slot, 2 megapixel camera, GPS and all the fun bits associated with the BlackBerry OS. Verizon gets one in Pink, Sprint gets one in Red.

Which operator should you choose depends on what color sneakers you happen to be wearing today or what sex your chromosomes decided when you were conceived.
