This morning, Research In Motion's Official BlackBerry Store introduced their BlackBerry 8800 section.
Chargers, holsters, earbuds, even battery doors are available for sale. Most of this gear is available now- a full week until the BlackBerry 8800 itself is slated to be order-able.
Rather than just a sea o'type price list, I thought I would give you some grabs that would show what is available. I mean, it would be helpful to see a depiction of what these products are, eh?
(I'm not Canadian, like RIM, but getting in the spirit)
Like I am doing now:
Trust me, ya don't want to be out on the road with your BlackBerry, but sans charger or extra battery. Has happened to me more than once, and frankly, it sucked. Fortunately there was a Sprint store in the mall near my hotel.
There's so much more. Make with the click-y:
You got to know how to (holster) them, know how to fold 'em (the holster, not the BlackBerry, that is)
When we were kids my little sister carried around a tote bag. I kidded her about it.
But hey look. Now I am getting paid to write about tote bags. Sweet revenge, Bubblett (sister's nickname since childhood).
Five more screencaps to go:
Dead-set against headsets? Think again, for the next time you are in a crowd. Do you really want others to hear what the folks you are talking with over your BlackBerry are saying?
With chargers, you've got the power. Power to the BlackBerry peeps (showing my aging 1960s consciousness). If you only knew, heh heh.
I especially value the Battery Door. I recommend that all BlackBerry users purchase an extra. Sounds elementary but they do break off BlackBerrys. I lost one, and it is not fun. You do not want to leave your battery exposed to the elements, or taped up.
Yea, I know the GPS Receiver text says "BlackBerry Pearl 8100" but give the BlackBerry folks a break. Obviously they haven't had time to update their online store with 8800-specific text for the GPS Receiver...
