    trackball is physically pink -- why?

    Advertisement



    i recently did a warranty exchange on my 8800 and when i opened the box to find the new device it has a pink trackball. no, it is not lit up pink with a 3rd party software rather, its physically pink when the device is on and off. in fact, it matches my hot pink hard case i have for it.

    my question is, is this standard on some of the devices or did i just get a modded device direct from tmo?

    That's pretty cool. If there's somone\a company doing trackball colouring, I hope they find their way to our beautiful forums and show us some love!

    And to answer your question, that is not standard. RIM did not install that ball, or it was a mistake if they did.

    (maybe this is a sign of them releasing coloured track balls in the future?)

    Since the 8800 doesnt have a colored led behind the ball I know its a pink ball. It is rather cool, if you are a girl, or a guy that likes pink for that matter.

    I would rather have a different color, but am very interested in where it came from. I wonder if we soak the ball in a color paint or food die we can do it ourselves?

    rather interesting if you ask me, it probably was a refurb. hmmm...thats odd i''ve always seen and known them to be white. i think it's pretty neat though, and i like your wallpaper!

    Wow! I want colored balls too! That pink is nice and so girly.

    When getting your 88 did they ask if you were a girl or boy or what your fav color is?

    I hate to tell you but I think your phone is sick. Looks like it has Pink Eye...I will look around for some medicine you can give it

    What case cover is that on your 8800? I have the Vaja case on my Sprint 8830 but kind of like the case you have on it.

    You did send in the Blackberry to have its upset stomach checked, so they cured it with Pepto Bismo...

    I would just be happy with a trackball that didn't show dirt so easily. Like black. It could be the Black Pearl.....
    BTW, I have that same case in black rubberized. Very nice.

    ha @ andre being sick and taking pepto. (yes he wears pink. i like to think of him as a drag queen)

    elcamino: i buy them on ebay for like 10 dollars. i have a plethora of colors to match my daily outfit. its a girl thing. he also has an otterbox coming his way. ive never had one so i just want to see what the talk is about.

    jgirly2: no they didnt ask. im thinking my name did a just fine job. e-r-i-c-a either way when i saw him with his little pink ball and i was like aweeee...

    johnnyxedge: thanks for the wallpaper compliment. i regularly get it off of www.juxtapoz.com that particular piece was done by pardee.

    cp6169: make them and they will come. id put my order in for every color.

    as for my boy...well i love him with his little pink ball and all. hope you guys like his modeling pics.
