    After seeing the unboxing photos of the white 3G I'm more convinced I want a white one now. Just when are O2 and Apple going to get their ar$es in gear and ship the white model to the UK ?

    Why are we having to put up with substandard service from O2 yet again ?!
    :mad:

    The more I see the white iPhone, more I like it. Just seems to look more valuable, fancy, high-end. But I wish someone would take a photo of what it looks holding it to your head as if talking, just to see if it horribly stands out more than a regular phone.

    If the front were white as well I might consider the white but I think it looks awful being black on the front and white on the back

    I like how the black front blends into the black of the screen, so it gives the illusion as if there's no end to it, especially how the glass goes across the whole front. If it were white, it would kill that effect, and possible be hard on the eyes. I wonder how it would look if white on the front and the black back on the screen was white, maybe heaven has that model.

    I saw a mock up of a white iphone where it still had the bottom part black like the original iPhone and that made a little more sense, helping blend the front to the white on the back. http://www.macrumors.com/iphone/2007/07/20/iphones-in-29-colors/

    While it won't show fingerprints as easily, I'm worried it might show dust and dirt easier. And as it gets older, more roughed up and not as smooth, it might get dirty a lot easier. Then there's resale value if you want to sell it to afford the next iPhone.
