    Factory mistake, and I love it!!!???

    Advertisement



    Okay I'll try noy to be emmbarrased about my crackberry addiction... but I have noticed a difference in my VZW Blackberry 8830.

    I had an issue with battery life with my previous unit, and returned it for another. I noticed that my new 8830 has the smoked chrome side peices. Now maybe I'm crazy but I'm very certain that my previous was silver chrome. There is a distinct difference in appearance with this combination and I love it! The sides really stand out, they have a shiney grey look! I was almost thinking that there was a film that needed to be removed and was pleasently surprized to see that this was factory. The rest of the features are standard chrome as with my previous bb unit. Anyone with the AT&T 8800 should have these same side peices.

    Could this be a factory mistake? Or is this how the new models are shipped?

    sounds like the sides were overheated. I believe it's just chrome\metal foil\paint, and when it's heated, it would turn to a duller, smoked silver. Similar to a CD left in the sun.
    Am I out of my mind, or is that a believable theory?

    Check this thread and look at the side peices. That is what my VZW one looks like only w/silver face and back.

    Ohhh more of a dark chrome look, not a light smokey chrome as I was picturing.
    Sounds like a factory error, or a new look maybe?
    No idea how it happened, but it looks slick.

    I have the VZW 8830 and it has the dark chrome sides. I agree, cool look.
