    Really?

    Why is that?

    Plus I would assume since they are splitting the white customers in two (Gold / Silver versions) that you only have half as many customers for your white iPhone to sell to a year from now.

    I wasn't talking about which color most people on macrumors would buy, I was referring to the resale value of a used one. I've been reselling them en masse since 2010 and the white iPhones always sell for a little more than the black on average. I'm not sure as to the reasons why but they always do.

    The gold has put a new cog in the market though. I'm not sure as to how the resale value will be with that one yet.

    Space grey will be the easiest sell next year. IMO

    It will be whichever one sells the most, which is space gray according to previous polls.

    Did you check the links? That was the exact question asked...

    Exactly right, that's what the polls said, if only Cemjr had checked, he would have seen.

    If space grey sells the most units, more people would have it. Which means it would be more obtainable at resell, which means prices would go down? Just my 2 cents...

    I've noticed that the white iPhone 4 and Iphone 4s brings more than the black on eBay.

    Space grey. If you use moneysavingexpert to compare trade in offers for the 4 now, black gets more offers.

    CEX will pay more for a black iPhone 5 than a white one as well (£261 vs £258 on their UK site)
