Well looks like it's officially out and Engadget got their hands on it. Yeah I know how some of us feel about white phones, but hey they give us a good look. Doesn't look as tacky as I thought it would. What do y'all think? Think this could mean more colors coming to Verizon? (Long shot, but fun to think about)

Colors would be cool to an extent - I say that and I don't think I would buy something other than the standard gray/black...if you buy a color then you feel guilty about covering it with a case LOL ;)...

I'd rather buy the white case that Droid-Life reviewed a little while back. I think it personally looks even a little better.

And lol at the video, "It just has "Google" on the back, the way it should be unlike the fake branded Verizon version.".
-Lol, be quiet. Of course Verizon's going to want to brand it in at least some way. It's Verizon. Not an HSPA+ version that can be used on 50different carriers. It's still very minimal and still a Nexus phone. "Verizon 4g LTE" is just replacing Google.

Doesn't look bad, don't know if I like the slick look though. Seems like it might feel a bit cheaper than the original.

I actually agree with not making the front have any white on it, the black face is what makes the Nexus such a beauty.

Edit: My mistake, thought the back plate didn't have the little grip bumps on it like the regular one, but it does, that's the reason I thought it would feel cheaper. Although the sides do look a lot "slicker" with the white coating they've used.

The only comparison I can make it terms of white vs black/dark grey is using my ps3 controllers. The white controller looks nice, but it does feel a bit different, like a different plastic was used. It doesn't feel cheap by any means, but you do notice a difference in feel. I have a feeling this may be the same case with this white Nexus.

pass :icon_eek:

the GN looks cheap enough in black.

I don't really "get" these sort of comments. Just because the GN doesn't have some chrome bezel doodads and whatnot it looks cheap? I personally find the clean look of the phone quite pleasing to the eye.

As for white, I'll pass. Although I would jump on a true black color instead of the grey.

I would like to be able to have interchangeable back battery covers. Could I get a white (or blue, or black, or red, or whatever) battery cover to use on my grey Nex?

If the original was a true black I'd probably take that over the white but there's something about the gray that just isn't appealing.

True black would've been nice but the dark grey is something a little different. Alot of the Droids are black all around so was nice to see. I actually would've like to see the lighter grey like on the GSM version.
