Canadian mobile phone maker Research in Motion is getting ready for the release of a new version of its BlackBerry Curve 3G (9300) smartphone on the market in the UK, one that would be dressed up all in white.
The new version of the device would arrive on shelves with the same features and capabilities as the other models included, and should be available in the country exclusively via Phones 4u.
For those out of the loop, we should note that RIM already released not only a black flavor of the mobile phone, but also a smoky violet version, as well as a pink model.
However, feeling that these colors might not be enough to satisfy users' appetite for differentiation, the handset vendor decided to bring the white flavor of its BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone on the market in the UK as well.
The white variant of this device would be available for acquisition for free on monthly plans that start at £16.50 per month, at more than one carrier. Those who would like to purchase it on a PAYG basis would have to pay £149.95 for it.
The device would also be bundled with a BlackBerry PlayBook, the 7-inch tablet PC from the handset vendor (£99 with a £37 per month deal). Learn more on the available offerings here.
As a recent article on Pocket-lint notes, while pre-order availability is in place now, the device would hit shelves only on June 16th.
The BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone comes to the market with a 320 x 240 display on board, a full QWERTY keyboard, and a 2MP camera on the back.
The handset also sports 3G capabilities, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology, built-in GPS receiver for location-based services, and more.
It comes with multimedia capabilities too, including MP3 / eAAC+ / WAV music player and MP4 / H.263 / H.264 player, as well as with support for email, Internet browsing, messaging, and other features more. The handset is powered by BlackBerry OS 5.0.
