White BlackBerry Bold 9700: Thailand exclusive?

It is never the case pretty rare to see Thailand leading any technology or innovation so it is worth highlighting (albeit a minor development) that the country appears to be the first to publicly display (and perhaps stock) the new, white version of the BlackBerry Bold 9700.

Caveat, this isn’t  confirmed for sure as IntoMobile explains.

Yesterday, there were rumours that Rogers would be getting the BlackBerry Bold 9700 in a white paint job, but had little more than an telling SKU to back it up. Luckily, someone has spotted the white Bold right on RIM’s front page… for Thailand.

That doesn’t tell us who else in North America will be getting the option of a white 9700, or when, butthose who are in Thailand can pick up the BlackBerry Bold from a variety ofcarriers – just keep in mind that none of them are showing off the new colour, so its availability is still somewhat in question.

It will take more than a little confusion to stop me claiming this as a Thailand technology exclusive.
