Will RIM be releasing an alternate version of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 adorned in white? Back in July, while checking out an early 9900 that found its way onto eBay, we took a look at an aftermarket case for the phone in white. That gave us a sense of what to expect, but what we really wanted was some sort of confirmation from the manufacturer. We still don’t have such assurances, but a new picture of a white 9900 has been recently disseminated; could official word be near?
The image comes form a tech expo in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and it certainly looks a whole lot more legitimate than the white case from July. It’s interesting that there’s no badging to speak of, not even a BlackBerry logo, but that’s not immediately cause to consider the image suspect, considering where it was taken; had this been sourced from a retail location, that might be different.
We’d really like to get a look at the back of the phone, as well, but what we can see here looks very sharp, indeed. If it really is coming out, let’s hope it arrives ASAP; BBX is on the way, so RIM needs to get its BBOS 7 devices selling while they can.
