    Which color are you going to get or what color do you have?

    Seen lots of reviews that talk about how visible fingerprints are with the black slide. I think I want the black one but I know I will constantly be wiping it off.

    White seems to be the "in" color or closer to silver/aluminum that some want. i worry that with age the white will "yellow" and I don't want that look.

    I'm a fan of red and I think they choose a good shade of red but I would worry that each time I pull my phone out of my pocket it will scream "Look at me look at me!" and that isn't my style - plus, fingerprints are a possibility.

    So, any thoughts on color?

    I'm going for black. May show fingerprints but a case will solve that problem.

    I just ordered mine. I got the red, but just a warning if you do it early like I did (12:00pm) They will try to tell you there is no red for some reason. I told them I needed it ordered now and I want red or Im just going to cancel my contract and then all of a sudden there was a red lol. Im guessing there manager just wanted them to sell the black/white first.

    no they told you that because the reds are supposed to be held until the official release date of the 16th... that is why none of the stores have them TMO hasn't shipped them yet.

    hopefully your red one will be kinda like my wife's white one ALL of the accessories are white with silver... the wall-to-USB charger, USB cable and ear buds/hands free. where as everything on mine is all black. that andit's nice not having to buy yet another car charger for my big truck, my 12v to USB for my iPod works with the Slide.

    was really digging the "box" everything came in also

    One store only had 1 white, so I called around to find a red one. Its a really nice red, not too showy, very classy red.

    I had a black mytouch (first gen) and it did show fingerprints, but I'm sure YMMV. I wouldn't worry about the phone itself yellowing, but if you plan to cover it with an invisible shield (or something like that) the shield tends to yellow which is a lot more visible on a white phone. I have a friend who uses a white G1 and has it covered with an invisible shield. He has to recover it every couple months because it starts looking grungy, but once the shield is off it's just as white as the day he got it.

    finally got my big truck near a Retail store that had some red ones and after seeing the phone in person I didn't even have to think twice... swapped my black for the red. I like it because it isn't a bright red, it is more subdued and semi metallic look

    I like the white Mytouch 3g, but I think the slide looks better in black. Mainly because the buttons on the slide are black so that looks better than it does on the white phone. I'm not a fan of red. But the decision was kinda made for me when I called to order my phone last night and all they had was black :)

    I'm going for the White version.

    Black makes the phone look like any other phone on the market. Red is cool but I'd rather have something neutral. If they had a Silver model I'd definitely get it, but the White looks really cool imo. I love how the White stands out amongst the black accents, looks really sweet.

    One thing I don't like about the Red is how the entire phone isn't red, the keyboard is black and throws off the color flow somewhat imo.

    Black. I've always hated white phones and Red isn't my favorite color when it comes to phones. I'm generally a fan of black or dark gray phones.

    I went with the black one for myself at first and got the white one for my wife. I traded the black one in later for the white one, and I'm glad I did.
