Easily the hottest Smartphone on the Market!!

w00t! Christmas just came early for CrackBerry Kevin!! With my BlackBerry Bold 9790 Review now posted and basically every BlackBerry 7 Smartphone reviewed except for the P'9981, I've been jonesing to get my hands on the WHITE BlackBerry Bold 9900. And today it happened!

These last few months I've been bouncing around devices like crazy, trying out all of the BlackBerry 7 Smartphones as we've reviewed them and even testing out the competition in between reviews here and there for a few days. And while I am a huge fan of the color black, after a while all of these black gadgets just start to all blend in with each other. I need something different. I need something that stands out. I don't know what is, but there's just something about white phones that I love. They're just pure hot. I've honestly been wanting a white Bold 9900 since the day I unboxed the black BlackBerry Bold 9900 in August, so I am stoked.

Check out the video above to get a good look at the WHITE BlackBerry Bold 9900 and what comes in the box. Along with a white pocket pouch it also comes a white headset and white microUSB cable and charger! And as I mention in the video, for any of you guys out there who think white phones are for girls, your logic is flawed. Your phone is your better half. You want it to complete you. It's the yin to your yang. So a masculine guy is totally all good rocking a white Bold 9900. And seriously.. who cares. It's almost 2012. People can rock whatever color of phone they want. And seriously seriously, this phone is HOT. Like honestly, I think even the staunchest BlackBerry haters are going to like this one - seriously, it's worth owning as a just a messaging/communication device and you can carry around your other mobile in another pocket if you truly feel the need for something else.

I'm actually pretty sick with the flu right now so it's not my best video unboxing to date, but I think the excitement should still come through. Hit the video above and enjoy the show. Gotta go play with my WHITE BlackBerry Bold 9900!

Looks nice, too bad RIM is in the way out... I'll ride the coaster till the end.

PlaybookPlayboy

I remember when Apple was on the way out ... and before that, I remember when Microsoft was on the way out ... and before that I remember when AT&T was on the way out ... and before that I remember when IBM was on the way out ... blah blah blah. No one is going anywhere as long as they are profitable, which RIM is.

All praise the Bold 9900.

SaltySnack

Hate to admit it but I am sooooo jealous....I love my 9810 but that 9900 is I have to admit the nicest Blackberry I have ever seen! Sweet!

vbev84

Nice Kev, way to spoil yourself you've earned it.

Kevin Michaluk

Thanks. Seriously. It's so hot! I've been thinking I've been wanting that P'9981, but man, this phone is just soo good looking.

spektakle

I got my white 9900 yesterday too... woohoo!

vandeleigh

Yea, prolly takes a lot of hard work and delusion to constantly put a positive spin on RIMs constant fail. They've really set the bar at not following through on timelines and product, but if one was dense enough your articles could almost convince him otherwise.

Well done! Merry Christmas!

ignites

love the pouch more than the holster. but the front still a bit wierd gotta find a fix for the black trackpad!

SaltySnack

ps I wonder what Mrs. Crackberry has to say about Kelly Brook on the playbook :-)

mohawk apple

I likey,hope I find one just like that under my tree sunday morning. :-)

krsgdlw

That is one sexy phone I must say.

KG

Character is easier kept than recovered.

smileymickey

Agreed. That Bold is so totally sexy. Whew.

onbberry

new watch too!...
what happened to that fine panerai?

npunk42

I think I would want a yellow one. If I lost it in the snow nobody would steal it.

Maiev

I am on my White 9900 too. However, when I told my BB group that I had a white, some dude completely flipped out on me saying "white phones aren't for guys" or "I'll smack their face if they ever see a dude with white 9900".

I'm glad at least Kevin at @1:34 and even Tom agrees that they'd pick the white.

starman011

White Blackberrys are for guys that like Justin Beiber, black is for the rest of us...enjoy your "Whiteberry bold 9900".

the brother

I'm not sum yung guy Jeffs. I'm me. And to clarify i said punch him in the gnads...not the face. And that reference should be your "FORMER" BBM Group cuz once you were chastized by males and females in the chat you ran away like a scared little girl.

Piece out.

"Easily the hottest Smartphone on the Market!!"

Come on. Really??

Kevin Michaluk

uh... YEAH... what's hotter? NOTHING.  iPhones are boring so two years ago. All these Android devices look like black slabs. White 9900 is HOT.

daillskillz20

AGREED. The Bold's themselves are GORGEOUS.

Marvin-13

Yeah the white Bold looks AMAZINGGG! But where's the white 9850/9860?? That would be one nice piece of hardware... (not that there's anything wrong with my black one ;))

decypher44

That's sarcasm, right?? BB the hottest smartphone on the market? LOL! I mean, I love my 9930, but let's be honest for a second here.

jcarty

Loving it. Didn't know everything else would be white too! Awesome.

rexrim

what a nice chirtsmas gift!

Namueab

Dude just threw the scissors on how many dollars worth of phones?? Ouch....

buckwylder

merry christmas Kevin and everybody!

wow, phone does look dope, love it!

take care ya'll

peace

So jealous though still have my Bold 9650 :'(

tcseacliff

WOW ! what a fancy box! my black BOLD came in a cheesy ATT orange and white teeny box, this one is really posh, jealous!

buckwylder

oh, and Kevin - your excitement did come through! lol, for sure

and i agree with you about it (9900, lol) being pretty darn "hot"

I've got a white 9810. I get a ton of comments on it - all of them positive. White phones can definitely be for guys. (They get dirty real quickly, though. That's the one drawback.)

buckwylder

lol, i wanted a white 9810 too, but decided not too cuz i figured it might get dirty quick, and maybe slightly stained over time, still love how it looks tho (the white)

monwentworth

Yep! hottest device in the market as of now, but seeing that holster all I can think about is the dirt it's gonna get as soon as you leave it in a bar table...

TheYalier

Shall I compare thee to the summer's day?
I'm in love damn it.

andy957

I normally really do not go for the white phones but I must admit, this one looks great!

magician1

White is very coooool!
I am using an iPhone 4S in white and am waiting for the 9790 to land in the uk, no hesitation in buying a white 9900 or even a 9790 if they bring it out in time before my next purchase.
White is awesome and looks so slick! Get out of that in learned attitude of black is manly.......white is super slick.....get with the beat dudes.

Dekerta

Who else noticed the wallpaper on Kevin's playbook right away?

Yandar

Sorry Kevin but I still think the white Berries look nasty.

HUNTZODIAC

Zodiac BBX

That white bold 9900 is beautiful would upgrade 2 it but can't do it til june...hoping and praying that the bb10 phones will be out by then...until then my torch 9800 is going strong

cl8baller

Kevin you spoil yourself too much.

Look at the PlayBooks, look at the monitor, look at the phones, even a land line, absolutely ridiculous. :D

dbtrill

Ha that's sad...my new iPhone is all white with
Everything but the case...I just don't understand
Why u "crack berry" fans can't see that bb suck

cjterminator

I really feel sorry for you that you had to make such efforts to come on Blackbery specific site to tell BB sucks. Your iFan sites don't welcome you, poor iSheep...

RoseBud68

Wonder if this will be out for us AT&T folks. Not likely we would get a pocket pouch though.
Looks great Kevin. Send my your 9860 if your done with it....

ngc

still dont like it...

makaveli95

i didn't realise it was big news, i got my white 9900 last friday. i swapped from a 9860 after four of them broke in a row - and the 9900 is awesome!

BBPandy

the white ones do stand out more...but I prefer the Blacks...PLUS white ones get yellowy & dirty a lot more then the Black ones (or atleast you can see the dirt more...I'm sure the blacks get just as dirty)

Smokeless Joe

I was looking at the two "dots" to the right of the ear piece I know one is for the message indicator but whats the other one for?

Venichie

Oh you guys are so racist... Gotta deal with the black phone, because they're now the dominate. Although when a white one shows up, you guys go crazy with excitement?! RACIST...

J.K. :)

qbnkelt

Oh, jeesh......W - A - N - T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tcseacliff

kev, that is sweet! white was not out when I got mine,damn! I do wish they would make the trackpad white. i have a white Torch, and wished the pad was white on that also.. kevin, next time you talk with rim ,ask them why no whit track pad, would be nice to know their take on it.

BBPandy

that would stain & look ugly in no time (white trackpad)

elphie28

I have never liked any color for a phone other than black or grey but amazingly enough, I don't dislike this as much as I thought I would! I do think that keeping the trackpad black is good for a couple of reasons. First, it is a really sharp-looking focal point. Second, I can only imagine how filthy it would look in a week......or a month.......or a year!! It is sharp though.

erin_elizabeth

Phones look so much better in white! I wish I got that phone for Christmas!!

07thking

I want one I want one I want one!!!!!

Yell0w

At 0:35 in the video, I'm pretty sure kevin said with the 9780 posted instead of 9790.

Calotag

Same ***+ different color... Soo upsat with RIM.

Shlooky

Isn't it the same as unboxing the black 9900?

iToya

Merry Christmas, everyone! The phone looks awesome..as expected..looks even better from my new playbook!

JackSadler1996

Jellious but I still love my curve 3G

"Easily the hottest Smartphone on the Market!!"

Uhh i wouldnt go that far.

sf49ers1980

This video has proven to be the final straw. With no upgrade due until July2012, I have bitten the bullett and just taken out a 2nd phone contract just to get my hands on a 9900 in WHITE.
£26 per month via Phones 4U in the UK right now!!

Just have to hope that they ship it nice and fast. Maybe, just MAYBE it will turn up before Christmas day... but I wont hold my breath.

Also, my girlfriend is going to kill me!!

rcheung135

I HAVE ONE WITH WHITE HARD CASE! :DDDD

Jaredius

Technically speaking, black and white are not colors, they are shades.

chaoticblissx

They should have released it at the same time as the black model like they did with my Torch 9810. I of course picked up the white Torch 9810 and it too came with all white accessories except the white case. Have to say I'm a bit jealous of that case!! Still a sweet looking device and now that its out I many consider picking one up as my second device.

Jaredius

If you are concerned about your white phone getting dirty, wash your hands at more appropriate intervals throughout the day. Turning yellow? Stop chain smoking.

johniechong

When do you think I can send my black one to have the casing replaced for white? Do they usually release the original ones ? Or only OEM ones ?
Thanks guys :D

ComfortablyNumb8

Had a Black 9900 since September then my father gets a White 9900 last month and I agree it is better in white, cleaner looking. Only jarring for me is the track pad....... why black ?????

karr..

Cool... the phone looks totally awesome in white.. i got my 9900 (black) yesterday... and i say its just superb..

MrChiezy

Because the sensor in the trackpad can only 'see' things with a black trackpad, a white one will not work. So that's why you can't find aftermarket trackpads in different colors :)
