Rogers has added a new color to the BlackBerry Kickstart. Now the phone is available in Pink. While this is not the best option, it's still nice to know there's another color available for those who want the handset, but hate its original grey painting. You can get the Pink Kickstart now for $49.99 with a 3-year contract.
RIM has suddenly decided to rebrand its BlackBerry KickStart 8220 clamshell to BlackBerry Pearl 8220.

The choice is yours...
