    Which should I get? I've never had a white phone before so I don't know what to expect but it looks mighty pretty in all the photos. Of course, black is kind of standard...and it does look very awesome in its own way. But, what do you guys think?

    I think no matter what people say your not going to go with peer pressure over the internet and will go for the one you think looks the nicest :p

    While that is certainly true, I mean, I really like the white...but I wanted an opinion from someone who owns regarding its care. Does it yellow over a long period of time...? You know, issues like that. ^_^

    Ebay is your best bet but they seem to only be selling pieces from the UK...

    I thought the white phones had a hard plastice backing and did not have the soft touch exterior on the battery door like the black one does. If it doesn't have that coating, go for the black, it really makes a big difference....

    Oh, does it? I'm really partial towards the rubbery coating that I have on my K810i and I would really hate to lose that feeling. >_>

    White isn't rubbery. I bought white as I liked it a lot better at first, now I think I'd prefer black. Not a huge deal.

    Oh come on dude! Never wear white after September. Straddling the fence like a Canadian is like luke warm half brewed coffee with ... some sugar, some cream---Blah....sitting on the fence....

    Take a stand and be proud of your choice!

    Don't be wishy washy!

    Pick shade or tint and be proud to whip out that bad boy to show it off to your friends (or enemies), just don't go with BOTH. That's too Boy George-ish.

    I have a Whte x10. Ive had it for 2 months now and still looks brand new but I do take care of it. Never put it on a dirty surface without its protector case that I bought for it and try not to touch it if my hands are dirty.

    Plus you can change the case if you dont like it, its only held in by screws.

    I asked myself the very same question before i bought it....i took it white because i never had any phone in white (and because my GF dared me to get it) And i took white. I love it, i don't regret it a bit and i like it more than the black.

    Awesome! That's my choice too. I actually have never owned a white piece of electronics in my life now that I think about it...except one ipod that I gave to my wife... happily stuck on black...
