Just yesterday we were at the BlackBerry media event where we were given a quick showcase of some of the nifty and wonderful apps on the BlackBerry platform and well it left us quite dazed, with the possibilities of the BB OS7 platform (more on that later).
Far importantly, we noticed that a few key BlackBerry executives were walking around with the 9900 in a gorgeous white colour body. the 9900 existed in white!
And today, we get the official communication of it’s existence. If you ask us, this 9900 in white looks quite stunning an beautiful in person. I guess this colour might just put the sales of the 9900 in overdrive.
