    Okay so ive been looking around at the 3g iphone pictures and it looks really nice, but ive heard people say it looks very feminine, who else here thinks so? I also want one because of less visible scratches but its still pretty sexy.

    Looks kinda like a bar of soap, but I wouldn't say it looks feminine.

    it does look pretty girly. but being a gay male i don't mind it.

    plus my SWAROVSKI iPhone case if WAYYYYYYY more girly ... but its a show stopper for sure.

    I think the Black iPhone looks better for guys and the white iPhone for ladies. But, that's just my opinion.

    I think it's racist. :)

    I don't really care for either, but it looks about as feminine as the umpteen million white iPods that have been sold this decade.

    I like my svelte aluminum one and hope they'll offer actual colors soon. If you're going to have options, give me a red or blue one.

    Yeah I would buy a (RED) iPhone, that would be a cool color.
    idk if they had a red and blue iPhone it would remind me too much of pokemon for gameboy, but thats just me

    Sure, the white iPhone is feminine looking, but that doesn't mean it's not acceptable for a guy.

    Uh, yeah, 'cause all of Apple's other products look so tough... :rolleyes:

    Really, like Apple makes any "Manly" computers, iPods, or phones (the Mac Pro is as close as you get there - and even it doesn't scream I'm a man and don't give a crap).

    Come on, like real men would have even uttered the word iPhone, iPod, or iMac back in the 80's (or 70's and you'd have really cleared a room in the 50's and 60's). Just uttering such words would have given serious doubt to your masculinity.

    And, um, if you want to look tough, try being a man and go somewhere with out a gadget attached to you. Sorry, but I've never seen a man whip out a portable electronic gadget and thought "man, he sure is tough looking".

    Sorry, but gadgetry isn't manly. Just accept it. Geeky yes... Manly no.

    If you want to look tough, buy something that says I don't care (something under $30). Don't buy it a pocket protector, and make sure you handle it like it's a worthless piece of crap that you'd just assume lose rather than carry the piece of junk around. Then you might pull off manly.

    I'm a little confused by apple's strategy. First we get the blacktax on the macbook. But I can't understand why the white only comes in the high end model, sort of a white tax.

    Whatever apple is doing it works... I bought the black macbook and am looking forward to owning a white iPhone.... damn they're good.

    Personally I don't think it looks any more "feminine" than the white iPods…

    But it does seem a tad uglier… ;)

    Finally, a self confident geek

    Just kidding :p

    Yes, who cares. Well, that is unless you're relying on your phone to get a woman. But, if that's the case, she'll just think your a geek and move on.

    white is a "cleaner" look. personally, being a guy, it looks semi-feminine to me, but in the end, it's personal preference... who knows,i might end up getting a white one after seen it in person

    Agreeing with the consensus so far. It looks more tacky than feminine.

    Dude approved!

    Why would a white color be feminine? They've sold millions of white iPod's and white MacBook's.

    But I don't quite understand why Apple gives the white color to the 'High End' 16GB iPhone. I thought they were coming back from the white color..
