I have had both white and black at this point, but I guess it will depend on what the phone actually looks like and what it's made of. I personally liked the back front and white back better than white on white. If they brought that back it would be a no brainer for me. Short of that I will have to see the phone before I decide.

A silver one would be good looking. If not, I'm going for a white one. All my previous iPhones have been black.

White.I wanted a white 4S but they only had black during the apple store reservations and sadly couldn't find anyone to trade.So definitely getting white,or any other color Apple decides to offer that isn't black

I hope that the black will be matte. I like the white because it doesn't show fingerprints but the black looks more professional.

I used to tend to switch on each revision, but I've stuck with white since the iPhone 4 version was released (and kept that choice when I got my 4S). I also loved my white iPhone 3GS. I think I'll switch to black when the next release happens. That all depends on which one looks better too, of course.

There will be new colors this time. Apple must realize that it is getting a little silly with how ubiquitous the iPhone has become especially in certain social groups. A little color variety would allow people to show a little individuality. Though cases have helped with this so far. Hopefully the next phone won't need a case as much. It is a little more expensive to make multiple colors but the margin on the phone is big enough to support this hit.

I like the white, even for the iPads. Got tired of all electronics being black. However, does it really matter what color the back is? The bezel is usually all that's seen thanks to the widespread use of cases.

However, I would like a blue or silver version added to the mix.

I wouldn't mind a matte black or chrome version of the iPhone but seeing as I just got my 4S a month ago, it really won't matter for me. Maybe by the time I'm looking for a new one, they will have more color selections.

I like the black WAY better than the white. As someone said, it looks more clean and professional.

I hope the benzel is smaller on the next iPhone (might be if the screen is bigger). They should just go back to the front all black and colors for the rest of the casing.
