This sophisticated smartphone offers Verizon Wireless customers a powerful global wireless experience in a stylish red finish. The BlackBerry 8830 World Edition in red will be available online at www.verizonwireless.com and through Business Sales channels tomorrow.

    I guess it looks okay, but I think the Crimson/Red-Black from AT&T looks better!

    I almost got the red Pearl in exchange for a defective Black T-Mo Pearl. I hope all future BB's come in a variety of colors.

    Yeah, I really think this would be hot with a black keypad.

    Thumbs up

    Red is nice but no way I can justify getting a new one just to have it in red (darnit!) Closest I will come for awhile is this red flip case: http://www.blackberrysource.com/stor....asp?item=1037

    UNLESS they come out with affordable custom paint jobs...that I would consider :-)
