I like the gun-metal descriptor too, but guns are kind of a sensitive topic these days (strict gun control vs freedom to carry, etc)

That's crap, I am going to call it gun metal. There is nothing wrong with guns, I own a few and have a licens to carry.

But no, I'm exactly halfway through my AT&T contract.
Next year: bare, polished, Liquidmetal iPhone "6."

Dammit, I must have been or of the first in the UK to order one of these this morning and I've still got to wait ten days!

"Gun metal grey" is a completely different colour grey than this. All those that think this is gun metal grey either just have guns on their mind, or are overly paranoid about political correctness.

Specifically, "gun metal" is a blue-grey, typically with a blue surface sheen. All guns originally made had this "blueing" because of the way they were made, thus "gun metal" as a colour is a *dark* grey with a blue sheen.

This is light matte grey and nothing like *any* raw metal at all really. If you see a gun the same colour as this phone, it's because the metal has been coloured and treated just like this phone. Most guns are simply the raw metal and are the colour of steel or "gun metal."

The phone is more properly considered an homage to NeXT if anything.

I have to agree with you on the color. The gunmetal color I'm familiar with is darker with more of a "patina" look to it, like a bluish pewter maybe.

I was going to go Gold. Then it seems that it's in short supply and its apparet popularity makes it a negative point for me. I may actually get this one. It's more attractive than I first thought.

Who's "Bobba Fett"?
Is that Boba Fett's southern cousin?
No wait...that's Bubba Fett.
Pfft damn clone wars...
