Which iPhone 5 are you getting? [Poll]

So Apple has announced the iPhone 5 and while there's only one of them, like every year, there's still a lot of choices to be made. Which color? Which capacity? Which carrier? We'll have our usual, complete iPhone 5 buyers guide up for you before pre-orders start, but we just wanted a quick poll to see which way the iMore nations was leaning. You know what to do, fill out the polls below, and tell me why you're choosing the way you're choosing in the comments below.

I actually don't like the look of the white one... though I'll admit I don't think it's ugly like I did when the first rumor photos emerged. The black (slate) looks really nice though!

Have there been any pictures posted of the on screen keyboard on the iPhone 5 when held in landscape mode? Would really like to see how the size of it compares.

Unless I win the iMore contest... the iPod touch. :) (VoIP with a $10/mo pre-paid cheapo phone for emergencies. Contracts are just TOO expensive.)

I'm holding off for the 5S, but I have my 4S unlocked on a monthly plan that's about $50/mn.

I'm moving from my unlimited plan on AT&T to the limited data plan with Verizon. Reason: AT&T officially said that my area would NOT have 3G services until sometime late 2013. So until then, I would be stuck on an Edge network that performs worse than 56K speeds, if at all.

Limited by usable will be a lot better than unlimited and unusable.

The white one looks cheesy with the silver. Black on black on the other hand looks classy, elegant and BOSS!

In order to get my full discount on the 5, I have to wait until Jan 28th. :( Does anyone know if you do the pre-order, you will receive the full discount? I heard this has happened in the past. Thanks in advance, if anyone knows.

You've made the poll as if everybody will be getting a new iPhone 5. Reading thru the comments after some of the blog posts it is apparent a good many people are to under-impressed with the iPhone 5 to even bother with an upgrade. Why not include such an option. Or maybe make a separate poll to get a feel for the volume of people who feel this way.

I like the panarama for the camera, and the stills while videoing. Been wamting an iphone becaause I'm not impressed with droids cheesy OTA updates. Black 16gig verizon preorder. A bigger screen would have been nice but not at the cost of a battery that leaves me charging it by lunchtime.

I just LOVE that Georgia doesn't give the choice of not getting the iPhone 5. Or isn't that an option? LOL Be interesting to see how many people are staying with the iPhone 4 or 4S. I have a 4S and even if my contract was up, I will probably wait for iPhone 6. Not enough of a difference to spend $399 (64Gb) and wait another 2 years.

I'll see what iPhone 6 will have to offer.

Now the mini Ipad? THAT is another thing all together. THAT I would consider buying. haha

Georgia, you forgot the fourth question: Locked with a contract? or Unlocked without a contract? That's the question I'd like to see results the most. I'm buying a Black 64GB UNLOCKED ATT model for $849 plus tax plus AppleCare+ for a little over $1,000. Then I'm going to trim my $11.88 a month ConsumerCellular.com SIM down to Nano SIM size to continue saving $66 a month or $792 a year with no contract. The low price ConsumerCellular.com service runs on the same AT&T network that AT&T subscribers run on only without the extra $66 a month. This is not an ad. I am an iOS instructor and consultant posting in the hopes some of your readers can do arithmatic. I can't understand why almost everyone is happy to give a carrier $78 or more each month for service they don't need to pay nearly as much for if they get wi-fi disciplined and use free phone call apps like magicJack whenever they're in a wi-fi zone to save hundreds of dollars every year in no contract services.

Why did you not include the fourth variable of Locked or Unlocked in this survey?

I'm in no hurry, will stick with my iPhone 4 for a while longer, I don't like the added length, I carry mine in my shirt pocket and the longer iPhone will stick out and I wont be able to button the pocket. But as far as color I would go for the black.

Verizon 32G Black because I like to limit change to as little as possible. I'm even gonna keep my unlimited data plan!
