We saw the white version of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 not too long ago in Dubai, and now it’s been confirmed that the paler than pale handset will be available on Vodafone UK.
White is evidently the new hotness, with a myriad of handsets receiving the treatments nowdays. Made famous by Apple’s iPhone 3G, other handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S II and Nexus S have also had their shells dipped in a pearly veneer. Purely cosmetic, yes, but judging from the popularity of white handsets, we don’t blame manufacturers. And choice is always good, right?
Other than the colour change you’re looking at the same old Bold 9900: a 1.2Ghz processor, 5 megapixel camera capable of recording 720p, 640×480 capacitive touchscreen, and that best-in-class QWERTY keyboard.
With Vodafone you’ll also be able to take advantage of their Test Drive offer. You can use as much data as you want for three months, and at the end Vodafone will let you know how much you’ve gobbled up and recommend the best data plan based on your usage.
The white Bold 9900 will be available on Vodafone shortly. Check out the video below for a quick hands-on. Now, where’s the electric pink model?
