Yes, they are expensive but two deciding factors for me. One - iLounge ranked them the highest in a test saying that they were the best looking for clarity and least amount of orange peel effect and applied the easiest with good coverage in corners, etc. Two - they send you two (2) sets of skins. So if you screw up on one or ever need to take it off and replace, you've already got another set. Personally, I learned a long time ago you get what you pay for in most cases and I will buy the best up front once and be happy rather than pay two or three times for inferior products and not be satisfied with their performance.

I'm going in for a white. If for some reason they don't have any I'll get a black. Either one would be great, but I love the white color, very Apple. I think it will also hide the fingerprints better than the black. On the plus side it will also go very well with my white macbook, until I cave in and buy a macbook pro.

I would go black if the iPhone is for me. But since the new iPhone will be for the wife, I think she will go white. Eitherway, the iPhone will still be one of the most attractive smartphones out there.

After all of the heartache with the "darkening" white plastic on my daughter's MacBook, it is black all the way. No doubt it will be a fingerprint magnet, but in no way will I deal with the discoloration problem. Besides, I have to put up with the "Crackberries are for real men, iPhone's aren't" enough around our office without the white stigma.

You know what? I was really considering white, because it kind of says "yes, I paid the extra money to get a different colour than you" lol.
But when I think about it, white just looks too similar to the other one. Black is HOT! No one will mistake a black 3G with a first gen!

I think that the black one would probably show scratches more, no? I guess it depends though on what's underneith the black (i.e. more black? Or a lighter coloured material that would show if the surface was broken?)
But black is just coooooooooler!

I don't think that the white says "girly", but I don't like the way it looks. I would pick black. I also think that more whites would be stolen because it would be obvious which phone it was. Also, covers/skins would hide the color anyway.

White screams status
It's easier to decide than you may think...
If you want to look cooler, the white iPhone gives you status because it is only available for the 16Gb. Anyone will be able to have black iPhone, but only those who pay a little more will have the chance to have a white one, why not advertise it?
Now... if you plan to use a cover for your iPhone, it does not matter.
Personally, I prefer the black one, because it looks more coherent with the black front.

I've decided I'm getting the black one. If you go to the Apple website, look at the new video they have (with the same guy who did the iPhone 2G's walkthrough). He's got the black one. It looks very sleek and shiney in his hands. Check it out: Apple
