It seems like the white iPhone only looks good in certain lights. In the first set of pictures, its got the yellow look to it. In the 2nd set, its nice and bright, much cleaner looking.
That's my point, though. I want something that looks good no matter what the lighting conditions. Black is black, that doesn't change. Just the way I think about it, though. To each their own.
I took a few pictures over the course of this morning, and during unboxing, which can be viewed here: http://gallery.mac.com/geofas#100079&bgcolor=black&view=grid
When I started the queue at 5.13am I was only on my own for 22 minutes. #3 arrived @ 5.39am, #4&5 @ 5.51am, #6 @ 6.06am, #7 @ 6.08am, #8 @ 6.15am, #9 @ 6.17am and #10 at 6.20am. All guys so far, #11 was a female. Then the line started to grow slowly up until 7am (mostly males) when it grew exponentially up until opening time and kept growing. Once I was done and left the store, the line had grown all alongside the building and around the corner, I'm guessing about 50 people.
O2's online systems for registration collapsed and they had to switch to paper form registrations. Those don't necessarily take longer but you won't get your SIM card activated right away. Their estimates were, 'probably not today'.
Otherwise it was a great experience! Well organized and they even popped out at 7.50am to offer us tea and it looks like they keep offering hot drinks and water to people.
Enjoy your iPhone 3G!
Apple has always done it this way, look at the Black MacBook's MagSafe cord, and previous colored iPods all had the generic white cords.Something that I just realized...but subconsciously already knew.
All the plugs...dock...earbuds...etc. are all white. (even when paired with the all black iphone)
You would think they would have 'matched' the colors. (I realize apple is known for their white products...I just don't understand why all of a sudden the mismatched stuff?)
