    When I first looked at the Lumia 900, I liked the matte feel versus the glossy white but my first Windows Phone was a glossy Lumia 900. I swapped out for a One X and appreciated the polycarb finish on the device so when I ulitmately became fed up with Android and returned to Windows Phone I got the cyan matte finish.

    Cyan makes a fairly bold statement about you, your device of choice and I don't really want that kind of attention. To me it just says, look at me I'm out there, and I didn't want that to be my calling card everywhere I went. Would it have been a conversation piece wherever I went? Sure, because most people don't opt for a red/yellow/white/pink/blue/purple/mango/etc. phone, and basic black or silver work just fine. If gray matte was an option I would have gotten that when I purchased the 920, but the black seemed to me the more appropriate choice given the professional working environment I am in. I also didn't want the cyan hue to direct traffic to me much like the white Apple earbuds did when iPods were all the rage back in the day. I generally have enough on my person (phone, wallet, keys, bluetooth headset) to draw attention to myself from would-be thieves. I have never been the victim of a pick-pocket but I have had my car broken into before and lost things of value because in my foolish youth I left a radar detector out in plain sight.

    The cyan 900 did have an unintended benefit though; when the 920 was launched my wife knew that this was the phone I had been waiting for so she agreed to let me add a line of service to our account and get the 920 provided I get a killer deal on it. On 11/7 when I pre-ordered the phone I didn't even pay the $99 + tax on it, so between my corporate discount and the $49.99 price correction credit I asked for and shared here on WPC I got an incredible deal. The catch was that our daughter would get my Lumia 900. So far I haven't regretted the move and I know that she is primiarly using the phone and PIM functions rather than surfing the internet. I also know that Nokia makes quality products and the 900 had excellent call quality and clarity. My wife sighs every now and then because she's on a Galaxy S III.

    so 155 vote casted n only 13 women? lol WP is not popular amongst women then i guess.. )
    Not true lol. I'm a woman, followed the L920 since it was announced in September, searched google almost everyday for updates, switched from Verizon and purchased my beautiful white L920 on launch day. If that's not dedication, then I don't know what is! And it seems to me that my girl friends are more interested in this phone/OS than my guy friends. They loved my magenta tiles against the white phone, and two of them are switching from iPhones to get Lumias. The guys, on the other hand, are all hardcore fandroids and it's very difficult to tear their gaze from their new Notes/Nexuses.

    I'm a guy, and I have a black Lumia 920. Why?

    Yellow: I think it's too feminine, and I just don't like yellow on things.
    Cyan: Basically, same as yellow, but even worse.
    White: I hate white on phones. It immediately makes me think of the iPhone, and I also think it looks feminine.
    Black: It's pretty neutral, and I like it all right. It was the only option in the store at the time, and I wasn't waiting 3+ days for red (white was supposed to be in that day, but as I said, I hate white).
    Red: I wanted to at least SEE red before I got the black, but since it wasn't in-store, I had to pass. I would have liked to have had an eye-popping color to show off to others.
    Grey: THIS is what I wanted. I know it's not in the poll, but it's not feminine, and it's not a typical color. As a Cubs fan, I'd rather have grey than Cardinal red, haha. That, and it was matte. I wanted matte.
