    I was listening to a podcast and the hosts were talking about the iPhone 5s. They wondered why the Space Grey 5s was called Space Grey? I think it's because it's a sexier name. You have white and silver, white and gold. There used to be a black and slate so calling it black and grey would just plain suck. Just calling it grey would be even worst so they went with something that sounds cool. What do you guys think? and who else thinks they should have done a black and gold 5s? If they did that I would have been all over that phone.

    I wondered the same thing upon release...with the other two colors having no real defining name or anything outside of the color specification, why a definitive "Space Grey"? I can only assume that it was probably to make sure people separated this model from the "slate" color fiasco last year...giving it a name made people kind of look twice to make sure, and that was probably intentional.

    I wondered this myself but it sure does look good. I would definitely had liked to see a black and gold option. Not sure I would of bought it because of me alternating white/black phones (this year is white) but I think it would look good. Plus options are good!!

    I think Apple just wanted to give it a name that would stand out from the rest. I'd say Apple succeeded in doing this.

    I think it was to give it it's own identity rather than just call it the "black model". You feel as if your buying something with a unique identity

    Precisely. The name 'Space Grey' stands out more, and will now be recognizable to the Apple brand.

    The "Space Grey" is not really grey though. Or black. Its more like black and brushed steel or something. Just like the gold ain't really very much gold. More like white with shined bronze. In any case I think the name "Space Grey" is more descriptive of what it is than black would have been.

    I wanted Space Grey from the beginning. I was hoping they'd have it in stock! I knew Gold wouldn't be able to be found most likely, but I really was a Spacey Grey man from the get-go! I think that it looks classy.....

    I think it looks more like a GunMetal type color, but there would be no way that Apple would name it that.

    Right now it's the one that is pretty much available easily for pickup at the apple store.
