Back at Mobile World Congress in early March, BlackBerry took the stage and briefly revealed plans for an all-touch device with a dual curved display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Ron Louks, President of Devices and Emerging Solutions at BlackBerry, held up two of these devices in a quick tease for the media. The devices he held showed off a black and white version of the device, which is expected to be released sometime in November.
Since then, we've seen plenty of the BlackBerry Venice and now talented designer and Team BlackBerry member @Pootermobile has rendered up the BlackBerry Slider in a string of color variations. This brings up an interesting scenario for the community to discuss regarding possible color variations for the Slider after its initial release. BlackBerry has in the past launched devices in standard black, with a white variant following shortly thereafter. Popular devices like the BlackBerry Passport even saw a limited edition release in Red. Moreover, the device was redesigned with the 2015 launch of the Silver Edition BlackBerry Passport.
With this in mind, what color preferences would you like on a device such as this? Check out the concept renders and vote for your favorite color! Of course, feel free to expand on your choice in the comments as well.
