    A couple weeks ago we shared some released press pics of the white version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. If you are a fan of the white colored phones, you may appreciate some more "in the wild" shots of the device. Some folks over at HDBlog.it were able to get some hands-on time with the device and took some pics. The above and below pics are just a couple of several that you can see at the source link below. Some folks do not like the white look, while others appreciate it. Some argue that it makes their Android look too much like an iPhone, but that just indirectly gives Apple a "psycholgical-pseudo-patent" on the color white, and they don't really need any more ammunition, now do they. :)

    Personally, I am partial to a "silvered" or brushed-metal styling on electronics, which you don't see very often on smartphones. Share your favorite color or styling aesthetic in which you would like to see smartphones developed.

    Preach it brother! :biggrin:
    I'm not sure what goes through people's heads when they spring for a white phone! o.0 Let's hope they don't go the way of Moto and release a purple one! :icon_eek:

    Sent from the best phone on Verizon!

    I'm not a big fan of the white and wouldn't get one personally but it's good to have choices. :biggrin:

    I agree but it seems like it would get dirty pretty easily, you could put a case on to keep it clean but with a case the color makes not difference :blink:

    Well I am going to go against the grain here, I like it. However, I will admit I would not go out of my way to get one for the reason that Chizzele mentioned, I would just have a case over it anyway.

    I don't think it looks too bad. I'm not a fan of white phones, but it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would be. The front being black keeps the illusion that the display takes up the whole screen

    you ever have a white phone? I had the d2g in white and it didn't get dirty hardly at all.

    I personally like how it looks... I just want a physical keyboard.
