    So, for those of you planning on ordering a 900, what color are you planning on getting? I really like the Cyan cause it reminds me of a tropical sea, so I think I may get that unless the black one just looks super slick in person.

    I'm still debating

    Cyan:
    (+)More distinctive
    (+)Blue is my favorite color
    (-)Can't use a wide variety of accent colors without looking garish / odd

    Black:
    (+)More professional
    (+)Can use any color accent for tiles and still look great
    (-)Not that distinctive

    Good points! I hadn't really thought about it limiting the tile color options! I still think I want it, I always us a black background and usually have Red or Green tiles. A red and black phone would look pretty darn slick though...

    Found this pic online, looks fine to me, though others may disagree

    (yes I know its an 800, but the color combo I'm looking for still stands)

    Yea it is a pretty tough call but since this is my personal phone I think a splash of color other than black or gun metal grey will be a perk.

    Not sure how often I would feel the need to change the tile color from the blue.

    Really hoping this bad boy makes it to Rogers.... seems strange they're only getting the 710 so I have a feeling this is just a stalled release to Canada. No surprise.

    Regardless I chose Black. Like the ability to have more tile colour options without concern for "matching."

    I really like the deep red in the renders that would be my first choice. After that black and cyan are close behind in no particular order right now!

    I may have to go with Cyan. But dang, they both look sexy! Shall I get both? Alternate, every day, other day or week!

    Only problem with getting the Cyan, I may never be able to have it around at work. It's easier to hide black or act like it's another phone. With my Focus S, I pretend it's an Epic Touch.

    I think the best way to solve it would be to have opposite colored case covers. So if my Lumia 900 is black, I can just slip on the cyan case cover when I feel "cyan-ish," and vice versa. Man, I can't wait to get this phone.

    I'd go with Cyan. I don't care if it doesn't fit in as a business phone.

    It will make people ask about it. Then I can tell them how awesome it is.

    I'm going whatever really, but Cyan would be my choice. I really want orange as an option, I know Nokia has had some amazing orange colored phones before so that would be my preference if it ever comes out.

    I wonder how the blue phone with my orange tiles will look....

    The Cyan is just a little to blue for me, I'd go black.

    First Let me say that I think the Black version should hereby be called the "Vader". That thing just screems Lord Vader is here.

    I'm defintely getting the CYAN even though I think the Vader actually looks better. My favorite color is blue and there just arent any blue phones floating around out there. You'll defintely stand out when you pull out a blue phone. But make no mistake, the subtle sheen they added to the VADER looks outstanding. It also wont show any grime or body divits over time. The Black one is the nicer phone, but the CYAN is just to pretty to pass on.

    If we are calling black Vader is the cyan Skywalker (after all, he used a blue lightsaber in the first two movies!)
