Black has always been the standard color for BlackBerry mobile devices (well, it is Black-Berry, duh). But there are occasions whereby Research in Motion (RIM), the company who manufactures BlackBerry, come up with other colors like the white BlackBerry Bold 9700. Today, RIM has announced a red and white version for their BlackBerry Torch 9800.

The BlackBerry Torch 9800 claims to be the world’s first smartphone to offer a BlackBerry keyboard with a full touch screen experience. And good news to those who don't exactly enjoy the black phone: it is now available in two new vibrant colours – red and white. Customers in Singapore will have more color choices to suit their personality and preference. The BlackBerry Torch features a large touchscreen display, optical trackpad, backlit slide-out BlackBerry keyboard and 5-megapixel camera with continuous auto focus that supports video recording. It also supports high-speed 3G (UMTS/HSDPA) networks and comes with built-in GPS for location-based applications and geo-tagging. 

 The BlackBerry Torch smartphone is available through M1, SingTel and StarHub.
