    Interesting, I usually really like red, but I'm not real sure about this...

    I agree, I'm having trouble envisioning the current plastic iPhone in a red that doesn't look tacky. Maybe if it was a deeper red and metallic, like the Blackberrys?

    I think it would be cool if Apple came out with more colors eventually, especially a (product)Red. I personally wouldn't buy it, but variety is always good.

    i wouldn't mind a red like the current nano/shuffle, but the red from the article is absolutely disgusting.

    Not bad. It could have the potential slick factor that the white has. I would imagine the brighter red would hide fingerprints better.

    Would be interesting to see different shades.

    the black and red combo would look fantastic. That's a good color combination, red and black go together well.

    I would have to disagree. I think the red and the white would both look better if the front matched too.

    I usually like red but i don't like this shade. I think if it were darker I'd like it better. This one definitely looks too feminine.

    haha i didn't even look at the picture i was just guesstimating it. and yeah, now looking at that bright candy red color i don't like it. if it was blood red it would look much better.

    seeing that the white iphone is female (supposedly)...what gender would the red signify?

    Yeah the thing is that the nano/shuffles are aluminum which makes the red look way better. I'm not sure how high gloss plastic + red go together, regardless of shade. The one in the article is absolutely awful, I think they'd definitely have to go for a deeper shade.

    I will definitely consider it if it comes in a 32 GB model.

    But then again, I'm sure they will have a 32 GB model in black, as well.

    The trick is, are current iPhone 3G users going to be allowed to upgrade as before? Or are we going to be "non-upgrade-eligible"?

    Red is my absolute favorite color, and I love all shades -- including the pictured one (though I would prefer the red of nano's and shuffles).

    I've always bought Apple products that then come out with a (product)red version later, and I swore it would never happen again! So no 3G iPhone for me yet, until a red one comes out... :D

    Nah, it's in Apple's best interest for you to buy another phone. It's AT&T that doesn't want to pay for it. :)

    It would be nice to have more color choices but what I really want is a 32GB model in any color.
