    Hello.

    I've seen numerous pictures of the black and a few pictures of the white version, but I can't tell if the White will be as glossy as the black? I don't see why white wouldn't be glossy and the black wouldn't, I'm just making sure. Also, I saw a good amount of pictures of the white version's backside with a black Apple logo instead of the one on screen at WWDC with kind of a dirty white logo. Any information?

    Thanks!

    The white is also glossy, and the reason the Apple logo looks different in different pictures is because it is reflective, so you are just seeing whatever it is facing.

    Exact same material as the black and white macbooks.

    Except the black Macbooks aren't glossy, so it's not the same material.

    I'm looking at my white apple mouse. I'm envisioning the white phone to look like that. Till I'm told differently.

    the logo is highly reflective chrome (like the entire back of ipods), so it will look bright on the glossy black iphone, and dark on the glossy white iphone, making it stand out on each. also, the intensity of the logo's brightness/darkness varies depending on what it is reflecting.

    yup, its black

    its also black on the apple site, you have to use the 360 view to see it though because there is a glare that makes the logo look white or grey.


    i really wish they would have had the logo light up like on the laptops though.

    The Apple logo is 100% not black. It is chrome.

    Did you look at the 360 degree view of the Iphone on apple.com ?

    It's because of the reflection that we see it as chrome/silver , but it is black.

    It is black. That just made the purchase for me. I was 90% sure I was getting the white, but now with the black logo it's a definite. I'm way, way excited.

    it also could be the reflection of a dark studio where the photos were taken that makes you see it as black [:

    I saw the 360 view.
    And form the head-on view, it clearly looks like a chrome/silver.

    It just doesn't make sense for them to suddenly make it black.

    The "photos" in the gallery on the iPhone website are computer generated/illustrated, so you can't make a final judgement about the color from that.

    I also think it is reflective chrome, however.

    i feel silly even discussing this but why doesnt it make sense? the black iphone has a white logo, the white iphone has a black logo? makes sense to me.

    i posted this a few posts up, but you guys obviously didnt look at it, http://blog.laptopmag.com/hands-on-with-the-iphone-3g

    those are pics of the ACTUAL white iphone 3g, its shows a BLACK logo.

    Because the black iPhone DOESN'T have a white logo, it has a chrome logo.
