    I'd prefer WHITE iPhone over BLACK. But, I am a little worried if I will be the only guy with a white iPhone while all the other guys are holding black iPhones.

    I am not insecure about my masculinity, but I only see white iPhones on girls and haven't seen a guy holding a white iPhone yet.

    Your thoughts on colors?

    My thought was I'm going to get a case for it.

    You could get a case made out of shark skin. That would be manly.

    Lol! Wow.

    I'm a male, and I like white better.

    When did white become the new pink? :eek:

    or wrap it in barb wire. then it'd be uber manley, the blood + white would be a good contrast. Scratches might be a bit of an issue though.

    It sounds like you are very insecure in your masculinity.

    You could write "I'm Not Gay!" on the back with a sharpie, which coincidentally would show up really well on the white one.

    Barb wire? That would look like Pamela Anderson's arm. :D

    I plan on getting the white to match my Whitebook. But will I like it in a year? I dunno, black goes with everything.

    Whatever you do, don't write that in glue, then sprinkle it with pink glitter... it didn't work out too well for me :-\

    If you're secure in your masculinity then you really won't care what all the other guys are holding.

    Some people also like white because it was the color that re-launched Apple's success so to speak. The iPod of course being the iconic white device, the iMac G4, the iBook G4, all the Apple accessories, etc.

    The move to black was almost seen as a going to the other side sort of thing by some Apple fans.

    I was one who did love the white, nevertheless, I go ahead and use black, for the iPhone.

    Only if you killed the shark with your bare hands and then skinned it.

    I have a white iPhone, and I'm incredibly manly. I got the white because I found that it was easier to spot against the fur of the grizzly bear that I ride from my ranch to the studio where I shoot my porn movies.

    I'm a guy, currently have a white iPhone 3G, and plan to get the new
    iPhone 3GS (16GB) in White. Colour doesn't matter, it's simply down to
    personal choice.

    There's nothing wrong with a man having a white phone.

    That said, I didn't realize that many people had white ones at all! I'm just guessing, but if I've seen about 100 iPhone 3Gs in public over the last year I'd say that about half of them had cases, and of the other 50 only about 4 or 5 of them were white.

    So...something like 10% based on my rough estimates.

    I honestly don't even remember the genders of those 4 or 5 people, btw.

    I've never seen a guy with a white iPhone, though I don't really take much notice of what phones other people are using. I know what you're saying, but I don't think it really makes a difference. Like somebody else said, everybody was carrying white iPods for a long time. Now, if they were to come out with, say, LAVENDER iPhones and you bought one of those, you might get the wrong kind of attention...

    Honestly, the only white iPhone I can remember seeing belonged to one of my female friends. Looked good, though.

    I ordered one anyway. You know me. Gloss: trend-bucker.

    Guess this makes Kevin Rose a woman.

    Really, just get over it. I like the white iPhone as well. Does that lessen my masculinity?
