It seems to be the most popular colour on all the polls I've seen, so presumably a lot. Not flaming, but why would this be a gender issue? Since when is blue a woman's colour? I've heard the same about gold, and white recently, so it seems like men can only have pitch-black phones now..
I am glad i have to wait for the max. Get to see what the colors really look like in person. Two phones ago I made the mistake of getting "gold" it was pink. Was not that big of a deal since everyone uses a case anyways.
