Black, White…or Pink Nokia N97?

| April 17, 2009 | 2 Replies

Whilst googling for “white commisure” (I have a neuroanatomy exam coming up), my ever wandering mind darted to thinking about what colour N97 I might get in June (if all three options were available).


[from and; it maybe the lighting, but this looks  1. just too “in your face”, 2. Pink]

Ruling out pink immediately, I’m left with either black or white; neither of which are strictly colours, and the black is more dark brown. The first time I saw the “black” N97, I thought it was rather stunning; sleek and not as square. Black always works. When Nokia revamp an Nseries, its almost often also become completely black. Being black – it’s sort of the signature of the Nseries elite.  It’s simple, discreet, but looks good too.

The white, I wasn’t immediately too fond with.  But it’s also grown on me. A big plus point for some maybe that the black N97 resembles the 5800 too much. In white, it’ll be easier to show off. On its own merit, white looks  nice – conforms with the whole white plastic = fantastic, e.g..  iPod/Wii/DS Lite.

Personally, I prefer the black N97. In all angles it looks great. The white looks cheap in some shots – you’ve got to get the reflections off the ‘chrome’ rim perfect. But to each their own; a lot will love the white, and even the Pink (*cough* *girls**cough)

Which colour do you prefer? Or maybe another colour?
