White BlackBerry Curve 8520

Update: Errr.. maybe it's more of a silver than arctic white. Either way, it's definitely another color option other than black. We've also heard (not confirmed) that the BlackBerry Curve 85xx series will ultimately be available in a variety of vibrant colors - think Coke label red, blue, etc.. I guess we'll see with time if this pans out or not, but hope it does! *

T-Mobile must be busy this week bringing partners up to speed on the upcoming release of the BlackBerry Curve 8520, as last night we received multiple tips from individuals who caught a glimpse from T-Mo of the BlackBerry Curve 8520 in white (click the image above for another photo).

If you think back to the earliest photo of the "gemini", it actually looked white in that image (though it was a black and white looking photo), but all pre-release devices that have surfaced to date (including T-Mo branded ones) have been in black. I'm not sure at this point if they'll offer it in white at launch or if the second color option will be phased in at a later date. As for release date, there's nothing concrete yet, though it sounds like T-Mobile has been saying "early August". Now for the big question... would you buy the Curve 8520 in White or Black??!
