Black BlackBerrys are so yesterday it seems with the announcement from RIM, the creator of the BlackBerry, that it will be releasing a white BlackBerry Bold 9700 in the UK.

Identical in every way bar the colour, the new model will offer the same 3G, built-in GPS, Wi-Fi, QWERTY keyboard, and 3.2-megapixel camera as before.

"The chrome frame is complemented by the new iridescent white colouring", says BlackBerry looking to say more than just "it's now in white", in the press release.

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 in white will soon be available online and in-store from Carphone Warehouse and T-Mobile on selected tariffs.
