Something about white Bolds has always just worked for me, but oddly enough, I’ve never owned one. My wife had a white 9700 for T-Mobile and it looks like they are going to be the 1st American carrier to carry a white Bold 9900. I still think that the pricing is a little high, but they will still have a sexy phone.
As a Sprint user, I hope they are paying attention and offer a white 9930. I don’t think that Sprint or Verizon has ever had a white Bold, and hopefully they change that trend.
So, who’s going to pick up a white 9900?
Here is some close up and higher res pics of the white 9900:
Technically its not for T-Mobile, but it does give us a close up look at what the beauty is going to look like. The accessories are white too. To see more pics, check out the source.
Retailers have slashed prices on the PlayBook. They are roughly $300 off almost everywhere. This could be a very good thing for RIM. No other tablet at that price point can offer all that the PlayBook can offer. We know what it has and what it can do, and with the upcoming update, which will essentially change the tablet we know and love, it can be a major hit this holiday season.
To ensure that the PlayBook does well this holiday season, RIM needs to do something that historically they have not been good at, and that is market it. Lets face it, RIM’s marketing team is horrible. There is no RIM commercial I can say that I remember. Their “Love what you do” campaign was pretty good, but it was hard to connect those commercials to a BlackBerry. RIM needs to start spending money on marketing if they want the PlayBook to succeed. Good marketing has helped any and every product out there. Who markets better than Apple? No one, and look how successful the iPhone and iPad have become.
Our friends at BerryReview.com have put up a list of places that have the PlayBook on sale. Check it here: http://www.berryreview.com/2011/11/21/rim-confirms-retailers-offering-blackberry-playbooks-from-199/
I will be doing my part to convince potential buyers to pick up the PlayBook. It offers more than the Kindle Fire or the Nook Tablet. Its an incredible device that I have enjoyed thoroughly, and I will try to share my experience with everyone who is willing to listen.
