So long as we’re talking pink today, rumour has it Rogers will be releasing a pink BlackBerry Bold alongside the new BlackBerry 8900 Curve in January ’09. The Bold hasn’t seen anything in the way of new paint jobs yet, despite a couple of coloured battery doors being in the works, but I think the popularity of pink among the female demographic speaks for itself. As for the new Curve, it was launched on T-Mobile Germany recently, offering the same crisp screen (480 x 360) as the Bold and a better camera (3.2 megapixels), the same Wi-Fi and GPS capabilities, but no 3G.
Rogers’ sub-brand, Fido, should kicking off BlackBerry services soon as well, starting with the original Wi-Fi Pearl (BlackBerry 8120) the second week of December and the newer Pearl Flip in Q1 ’09 for $50 on a two-year contract. Two-year contracts are hard to come by in Canada, so good on Fido for setting the bar for the big boys. New data plans from Fido should also be out by the end of the week, so keep your eyes peeled.
Oh, and thank Bplay for that extra pink.
