Smile Silver or Brown ?

I just found that the Desire will also be available in Silver, and I think I much prefer this color.

Which one do you like the most ?

Definitely darker. I got a black InCase slider cover for my iPhone that completely covers the shiny chrome bits on it, looks so much sleeker like this. Not a fan of silver or light colored/shiny phones personally. Although, if the only way we could get it here in the US is in silver, I could live with that!

I'm fairly sure that whichever colour I bought I would eventually end up wanting the other one. The grass is always greener...

^agree with both of you. Brown is much classier.
Nice to have options though. oh, that's right we don't have any here in the states. CTIA can't come soon enough. Show us some verizon love please.

i don't like "brown" per say, unless it's UPS delivering me something cool , but the silver is too light - I'd go for the darker one, even if it is "brown"... let's call it dark bronze, or mocha or something

The silver color will easily wear out ... After several months it won't shinny anymore.

And look cheap compared to the dark brown gold(ish) color.

The newly discovered black one ... is to common for gadget, not special.

So, I picked the dark brown.

Brown, I dont like the silver look. It looks like the remote from my tv or something, very cheap.
