Fighting Words: Some Say The White iPhone Is 'For Girls'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Since the second-generation iPhone was released, buyers can choose a black or white handset.  If you plan on getting the new iPhone 5, the game changes.  The color you choose will appear on the front panel as well as the back which is made of anodized aluminum.

Apple says it’s the same material used in Apple notebooks and the iMac — with inlays along the top and bottom made of ceramic glass (on the white and silver model) or pigmented glass (on the black and slate model). While the white version will deter fingerprints the best, the black version is more striking and formal.

Ok, Ok.  It’s not an easy choice but you’ve got to fish or cut bait. Ha: Bet you thought we were going to use another euphemism there, didn’t you?

While it’s not a life-and-death decision, why is it so hard?

If you’re getting an iPhone 5, let us know in the poll below which color you’ll be choosing! Also drop a comment down below.
