    Not sure if this thread exists but i figured id start it anyway. Who else thinks it'll be extremely hard to snag a rose gold phone?Seems to be something apple loves to do!"heres this new thing but we'll make it super hard to get that way everyone wants one"

    no shade,ill have no problem waiting 9 months for one :rolleyes:

    Yeah I'm thinking that'll be the case, but I'll be trying to preorder one for launch day at 12:01 tomorrow night regardless.

    There is plenty of historical evidence to say I'll be wrong, and I won't be surprised if I am, but just judging by the normal reactions just on these forums from past iPhone launches, I don't think there is going to be a shortage of anything. I think you'll be able to walk in and buy a phone on the 25th just fine. I don't think demand will be as high this year because there really isn't a killer feature this year.

    The biggest iPhone change that most people were waiting for happened last year.

    Unless your'e a developer, a hardcore iPhone photographer or someone who hasn't upgraded in a long while, who's dying to buy this?

    Chinese folks love that shade-why do you think Apple chose it? They ain't dumb!

    That's the color I'm interested as well. Hopefully I'm sober enough to remember to pre order on Friday night right at 12:01am! Lol, reminder for sure.

    We would have heard about shortages so probably won't be the case. Still something can come up tomorrow but usually the rumors start up early.

    I hope everyone wants Rose Gold or Gold because I don't so that lessens demand for my model!

    Not me. I feel like they're going to be underwhelmed by the amount of rose gold sales. A lot of dudes went for the gold but they will draw a line when it comes to pink.

    Just my 2 cents

    Do you guys think the Rose Gold is a girly color?? I'm a guy and I think it looks good. I probably will get a skin for the face and change it to black.

    Rose Gold is unashamedly unisex - beautiful, elegant, and lustworthy in every sense. It's perfect for the sophisticated man who oozes confidence, as well as women who want to stand out from the crowd.

    It is certainly aimed at the female market. Why else make it pink ?

    I think it looks good too, so I'm getting it. I'm also a guy, but I don't see how that's relevant.

    Yeah you'll probably be wrong. There's always been a shortage dating back to the iPhone 4 except for the 4S launch. Remember the gold 5S?

    There will be a shortage, and this will be the biggest launch in iPhone history. The fact is, there are roughly 125million using an iPhone 5S, and a good chunk of those will be ready to upgrade.

    If I'm not mistaken, this is the first year where we have 2 weeks from pre-order to launch. In the past it's been 1 week. So the longer wait period might be enough to give Apple a chance to get production ramped up to where we won't see much of a shortage. Just my $.02.

    And for the record i'm a guy and planning to get the rose gold for both me and my wife. If nothing else, I figure it's a pretty special color and will be easy to sell if I don't like it.
