As far as wireless conferences go, CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment 2009 has been a quiet event, both in terms of corporate attendance and big announcements. I was pretty pumped to see BlackBerry set up at the Mobile Focus event Wednesday night, however, where they had on hand both the BlackBerry Bold 9000 and BlackBerry Curve 8520 in white.

I'm not sure what it is about BlackBerry Smartphones in white, but I gotta say I just absolutely love them. The white BlackBerry Curve 8520 is now available on T-Mobile's website, and the word on the white Bold is that AT&T will get it just after the middle of the month (was told 18th but that's a Sunday?). Don't go walking into your local AT&T store asking to buy it just yet though - the other word we're hearing is that this one is going to be an online-only sort of deal, straight through AT&T's website. We'll keep you updated as we hear more. The white Bold is really slick though. I've gotta get my hands on one of these to keep for sure. 

There are a bunch more photos below, so scroll down and take a browse.

and how exactly do you fit the blackberry in these? do they just unsnap or do you have to dismantle it...i'm quite partial to the black faceplate for the curve 8330. i hate the verizon silver xp

I had the pleasure of holding a display model of one of these new Curves for T-Mobile earlier today at Target- and I have got to say I loved the feel of it in my hand. Almost bought one right then and there!!

The smoothness and sleekness the trackpad gives is revolutionary (for RIM at least). I firmly believe the trackpad is the way of the future for our BlackBerries.

As far as white BlackBerries, they look pretty snazzy. Though I think they are kind of effeminite, they do have a futuristic sleekness to them.

RIM just keeps it coming!

Hopefully there will be a way to get these ACTUAL OEM parts and not the cheap chinese knockoffs everyone has been using.

But why not make the trackpad on the Curve 8520 also white?

I bought the white housing for my berry few months ago and it looks ace! Although it looks better with the white bezel that's I've got as well not the silver one!

And the white 8520 is out in the uk at the mo exclusive at carphone warehouse for any uk peeps that fancy it
Looks ace as well !!!

Long live the whiteberry!

Wow I now have seen the first 85** series bb that I like... If only VZW would get the 8530 in white I'd have to talk to the gf into trading her flip in :)

so, it's not OEM, but it's close... and I am not sure I like the white/silver combo.

Take it from someone that has been living with a white BB, you better keep that phone clean, it gets dirty real quick.

I have a black bold and love it in black, but the curve I would LOVE in white! That looks sweet with the black on thr edges. White and chrome doesn't look as good to me

I'm hoping for a white Onyx in the future. The 8520 looks great in white, although I would have gotten a white frame for both the white Bold and the 8520, that would have made the white versions look even better in my humble opinion.

Those look terrible in white, especially the Bold, looks huge and fat in white. I guess I do as well so what can you expect :)

Should have done a white bezel and black trackball. That phone looks like something a senior citizen should carry. White and chrome, a box of prunes, some mothballs and a 80's Oldsmobile with a bench seat.

I'm due for an upgrade first of December and have been salivating for the 9700 Onyx. Now, seeing the white Bold I can't make up my mind. Maybe they will make the Onyx in white as well!?

When i read the post i thought i would hate the bold in white, but it looks really cool, much better than the black im using. Will have to get a white 9000 as well as the new 9700.

Think the white will become a classic

Look at the photos I mean geez... If your going to do reviews on products take a decent pick... In this day and age a dirt cheap 80 dollar camera can take better photos than the ones you guys try taking with your cell phone in a poorly light room. Look at your photos of a device that is worth a lot of money and you cant even take the time to use a cheap point and shoot camera to make a decent snap shot? I mean come on your reviewing details and color and such right? Take a decent snap shot or at the least use some decent light to take the pic with your cell phone.. Take a look at these at least color balanced "FIXED" shots you guys did. http://www.visccara.com/crackberry/
