A few weeks back we ran a poll asking what color options you'd want to see for BlackBerry 10 devices. While a good number of you said you'd want to see many color options, most people simply want black and white. There's a famous quote by Henry Ford - "You can have it in any color, as long as it's black." While RIM has mostly stuck to that with their devices over the years, the Curve line is the one big exception (okay, I'll give you a few Pearls too).
While other models don't stray too far from black, silver or white, the Curves have been all across the spectrum when it comes to color. All the way back to the Curve 8310 and 8320 did RIM provide various color options for consumers -- everything from Sunset Orange to Saphire Blue to Ballet Pink. Personally, I'm a fan of black devices, while (as you all know well) Kevin loves his white. I'd love to see a bunch of great colors for BlackBerry 10, I think that we'll most likely end up with black at launch and maybe white will follow a few months later.
It would be awesome to see some fun BlackBerry 10 devices in blue, orange, silver, white, purple ... you name it, but I think RIM will stick with what works and keep the "black" in BlackBerry. We haven't heard anything that even hints at more color options, so it's a pretty safe bet that we won't see anything crazy at launch.
Keep reading for a look at just how many Curve colors have come and gone over the years. It's quite a big list (and took a while to get it all together) so if we missed anything be sure to leave a comment letting us know so we can fix it up.
A new joint announcement from BlackBerry, OnwardMobility, and FIH Mobile lays out the plans for a new 5G BlackBerry Android smartphone with a physical keyboard to be brought to market in North America, and Europe within the first half of 2021.
