Black or White?

This is a design forum, full of designy people.
So chances are a good proportion of you either own or have at least used an iPhone.

So, which colour iPhone 3G/3GS do you prefer:
BLACK or WHITE?
(And why?)

When I get one, I think I'll go for white, simply because you don't see them around as much and spotting one always surprises me.
(Forgive me if a thread like this exists already, I didn't find one in my search)

Black, or a case.
I find the white one looks more feminine, not necessarily a bad thing, but I just don't usually go for stuff that looks more feminine than not ;)

Well, it's on my shopping list Jimlad me auld mucker and allthough some might say the white looks a tad girlie....I kinda like 'em too.

Although as soon as I get the slippery like sukka I'll be wrapping it in some anti - slip armour casing...probably with a bit of 'second chance' Kevlar thrown in. Maybe with a DPM look.

Don't drop it near a bush, you'll never find it again!

I might "repurpose" the cover on my iPod Touch, or buy something new. A translucent coloured cover would enable me to make my iPhone any colour in the universe! ... Yeah maybe not.

Also, from the Black ones I've seen, they do look nice but get covered in fingerprints and just look like a kid with dribble-covered fingers has had it. Apparently the white one doesn't show that up so much.
Be honest tho Typo, you like the white because nothing says "Apple" more than white! :D

Did you see Jonathon Ross getting his iPad fried (like in a frying pan) on his chat show...he looked well cheesed off.

Well you would be.

Is Tim still alive?

I love the white one, but in reality I'll be sticking mine in a case too, so I guess it doesn't matter :(

No DPM, but one of the gun manufacturers does make cases lol
