    I don't see any of these colors on youtube.
    All I see is Black and Blue.

    Why is this?

    I ordered the limelight one.

    I could be wrong, but I thought the limelight was 8GB only, and only available on... T-Mo or AT&T? I'm not 100%.

    I saw it on an AT&T store here in New York City, it has 8gb only and the price was $99.99 with two year contract. I don't know if any other carrier will offer it with more storage.

    (update) Here is the device Windows Phone 8X by HTC - 8GB Limelight cell phone from AT&T

    If i was you i reconsider, the color looks nice but the storage sucks. After taking what the OS uses from 8gb you will be left with 4 or 5 gb of storage for apps ,pictures , music and videos. That is not a lot and the device don't support memory cards to add more storage

    It truly boggles the mind as to why they decided to cripple the limelight version.

    I posted this in the other "color" thread... I think color is great, but very few are bold enough to rock a neon green phone. I couldn't... My 13 year old sister might?

    I can't imagine this model selling too much either way.

    I wish Verizon offered this color. I would have gotten it for sure. Instead I have black because I am not crazy about the Blue or Red. I'm hoping that replacement housings come out for not too much. I will make the change.

    I'm pretty sure no one is buying a 8GB device without knowning the consequences. Those who just want a new phone to play some games on and take a couple of screen shots are good to go. You can always use the SkyDrive if you are running low :D.

    Wholeheartedly agree. This was going to be it for me, then I found out it would be an att exclusive and only 8G??!!?!?!? What gives? Lame.

    Thanks
