If you get iPhone 3G: go for white

I made a big mistake today. I bought a black iPhone 3G. My son told me to buy white. I thought white would look lame, but he was right (he bought a white one). The white doesn’t show dirt the way the black one does. Damn, it’s a schmutz attractor!

Learn from my mistake: go for white.

  1. I’ve waited over a year for my first iPhone, arrived at the local AT&T Store at 10 minutes till 8 – they only had 20 phones, I was number 14 in line, while there I talked myself into getting my daughter one also (next to the last one). We both got the 16GB. She got black and I got white so we could tell them apart. I really didn’t want the white one but it looks great – everyone wants to touch and play with them. Favorite toy for BOTH of us (and I’ve had several phones and iPods!) – gave my roommate my red Palm Treo and now he’s happy!

  3. I was one of the first in line at the AT&T store in NC. They *only* had white 16GB. I was really bummed, but after waiting over night, I wasn’t going to leave without something. Thanks for making me feel better about getting the white!

  5. “The white doesn’t show dirt the way the black one does.”

    Correct! It shows dirt in *different* ways than the black one does. It’s *white*, for starters. ;-)

  7. Hmm… Apparently there were no White ones on the uk I was third in line at the Scottish flagship store and they only had black. Looks like they had enough for the demand though.

  9. Looked at both in the store, and the white one was already showing dirt along the cracks and seams. Both looked and felt… well, cheap. Which isn’t a word one normally uses with Apple products.

    White or black, I’m putting a case on it anyway.
