    Thoughts on the colour?

    I saw one in the store - the back was already dirty and they'd had this for a few hours and had been handled by about half a dozen people. I wasn't too impressed with the white front too - looked a little plasticky. I did spend most of my time checking out the back. I was planning to pick one up for my wife, but may give her my black one if and when the developer edition comes out.

    I got a black one this morning and to me looks way better than the white one. I have never really been a fan of white phones to begin with though. I think in this case it looks like you said plasticky compared to the black one. I kind of wished the black phone came with black cable and charger instead of white, oh well.

    Is the black a matte finish or a glossy finish? All of my local stores only have the white available.

    The black front is a glossy finish while the black back is a rubberized/matte finish.

    I looked at the white, but didn't like the glossy white front.

    You're not alone! If you're going to release a product in two colors, at least have appropriately colored accessories I'm the box!

    the white = hot mess. Looked downright awful from the front, and while adorable from the back, gets dirty. Hot mess. < - foot in mouth alert.

    I got the white. Wanted a white front. Been using black phones for a while and wanted a change.

    The white looks great. Gloss is not an issue really.

    I went with the white.. It's growing on me, but I kinda wish I had gone with the black.

    I was going to pick up a black one but decided to wait for the 32GB Developer Edition instead.

    Went in today 100% set on white???looked at 1 hour old demo unit, and as OP stated, it was dirty looking....imagine a few weeks down the road! Black however, looked great! So I switched to black....now the real debate is if 16gb is enough Or do I return within 14 days for a 32 special order?!?!

    Yes if the dev edition comes out within 14 days I may eat the $35 restocking fee. Got mine for $540 somehow. Demo units are not a good indicator of anything though. You don't know what sort of people touched that thing and how clean their hands were.

    Yeah, but it should be matched in the carrier boxes too.

    My black Moto X rang up for $540 as well.
