Given my current obsession with all things lilac, it's no surprise that I fell in love with the delicious-looking lavender BlackBerry Curve 8520 while contemplating smart phones this past week. I wanted to upgrade my crappy Motorola cell but the iPhone vs. BlackBerry debate had me stumped — until I realized I couldn't stop thinking about the luscious pastel-hued BB. I'm such a sucker for colour. My new gadget was a hit at the office this morning: everyone passed it around, oohing and aahing, handling it with a reverence that can only be attributed to the phone's delicate beauty. The words "like a macaron!" may even have been uttered. And the pale purple shade just happens match my nail polish (OPI's Done Out In Deco) exactly. Clearly this was meant to be.
Of course, when you acquire one new toy, it tends to open the door to a whole world of related accessories — at least it does when you're me. So now I find myself lusting after this fab little 3.1 Phillip Lim BlackBerry holder wallet, which has separate compartments for your money, credit cards, travel documents and, obviously, your BB:
Oh yes, it will be mine.
Are you on Team iPhone or Team BB? What are your favourite smart phone accessories?
