    OK, I am dumping my RAZR and getting a new phone. I've basically decided on the Blackberry Pearl, because the price dropped to $150. (I have a T-Mobile account by the way) There is one problem though, I can't decide on the color! I like both black and white. So I'm leaving it up to you, fellow GBAtempers to decide (instead of flipping a coin [​IMG] )

    Black. Eventough I hate using these things, please buy these to support our University, it's practically built on RIM (the company that made blackberry). Plus RIM is Canadian, we are very proud that you Americans are using it.

    You are absolutely right!

    When the Whiteberry Onyx comes out.. get a black one.

    Black. White on silver looks really weird.

    Ob-friggin'-jection!!!

    The Blackberry Pearl is the most contradictory name for a product I've ever heard! Here's my twenty-five cents on the matter: The White version makes it look like you want someone to buy you a drink. Black makes it look like you just bit off a gingerbread man's head... and digested it. Bad to the ass! [​IMG]

    Nah, I've never really got behind the whole "white electronics" thing. They're too plain.

    Screw'em both. I had a Black Pearl a lil while ago to replace my Treo 650. Took it back and got a Treo 700p instead. Guess I'm a Palm OS whore lol [​IMG]

    I think it's some weird psychology thing: white's usually a background colour (a plain piece of paper, an empty image) so I associate something plain white as, well, nothing, empty and boring. It's really weird I know, I can't explain it properly but I only think white looks good with another vivid colour to contrast against it. My speakers are white and silver, I don't mind them but if there'd been an alternate Id've gone for that instead.

    Old guy here..
    Been through black, too 90's & besides couldn't see the buttons
    Been through Silver, too 80's & too hard to clean the dust out of the etched surface.
    Been through Faux Walnut Woodgrain Veneer, too 70's & god don't get me started.
    Going through White, yes, it's getting old... but better than ^

    Waiting for Orange! Yes, it's too 60's/70's but it's about time it came around again!
    Just, god please, don't let woodgrain ever come back.

    ORANGE FOR THE WIN!
