[citation][nom]adipose[/nom]While I certainly understand your desire to get the device you want, that looks like what you want, some of your reasons are a little, um, silly?Like, "they may have fixed the antennae by then." Well, maybe they will, and maybe they won't. But I doubt, either way, it will affect your decision. If you are using "better hardware revisions come later" as an excuse not to buy today, that's a long game...How about, "I don't want to wait in line with men." Well, wait a few days/weeks and you won't have to wait in line at all. Really? You are basing your decision on the people in the line, and not the final product? You also say that line will be made up of "like minded individuals," but how do you know that?Waiting in line to show you wanted the white iPhone might be a decent reason--assuming there is a line for it. Or, just buying one might demonstrate to Apple there is a demand--wait a minute, that's how it usually works. It really shouldn't matter who wants it--men or women. If apple sees that it is a popular product, they will know to keep making white devices.Your best reason is, it appeals to your sense of style. Now, there's a reason that actually makes sense, and probably the only one that actually matters to you. After all, Apple already planned the very phone you want--there were just unanticipated delays. They fully intended to launch with white iPhone but somebody just screwed up.In the end, buy what you want, not to make a statement. Buying what you want is the statement.[/citation]
Thanks for your analysis. I think you get exactly what I'm trying to say. It doesn't matter who wants it--women or men--but I am interested in why the people who want it, want it. Sure, some people may find gadget preferences based on color to be silly, but I tried to take that a little deeper by explaining WHY the color actually matters to me (I can't speak for everyone who wants the white one, of course).
