Roger releases pink BlackBerry 8310, BlackBerry Bold coming June 17th

Comments

BlackBerry Curve 8310 in PinkFor those looking to accessorize their summer in style (maybe to go with their Pink Pearl), Rogers has released a pink version of the BlackBerry 8310. Other than the color change (and possibly OS 4.5?), there’s nothing here that you haven’t seen before: EDGE data, 2.0 Mpx camera, GPS, and the not-so-cheap price of $199 on a three year contract (full deets after the jump).

But why buy a pink version of a decent BlackBerry when you can wait two weeks for the greatest BlackBerry ever made? Rumors are swirling over at CrackBerry that Rogers is set to launch the BlackBerry Bold June 17th. For our money, this seems a little too early for two reasons: 1.) We doubt that Rogers will launch the Bold before AT&T, which is looking to be sometime in late July/August and 2.) Ted Rogers hasn’t sent us an engraved invitation to his personal launch party yet. We’ll keep you in the know.
