    I scoured around here to find pics of a crimson, but couldn't find any. I'm reaaaallllly having a hard time deciding which one to get now (crimson or copper) now that I have to do an exchange tomorrow. I've had my heart set on copper for a long time now, but all the sudden the crimson is tugging at me.

    So could someone please post some?

    Thanks... I'd missed those too.

    I'm anxiously awaiting my Crimson... looks great! (I'm thinking of stealing another poster's name for my new baby... "Crimson Crusader"...)

    I saw the Crimson at a Palm Store yesterday. It was the only 680 they had on display. I have to say, I hate red, and I still thought it looked really nice. They picked just the right shade, if you ask me.

    I still haven't seen a copper or graphite in person. I'm sure they both look better than they do in pictures.

    I've now seen all 4 colors in person.

    I originally thought I would like Arctic, but I didn't like it in person. It's not a shinny white like an iPod -- that is how it looked in the pictures. It's more of a dull white.

    In fact, all 3 colors are not shinny, but are more of a dull finish. None of them look as bright and shinny as they do in the pictures. The Crimson and Copper definately do not stand out the same way the colored RAZR or LG Chocolate phones do. They just look classy.

    That said, I decided to wait for the Graphite one for myself. If I had something (like a coat or even the color of my car) that matched either the Crimson or Copper color, I would have gotten one of those. But I decided the Graphite would be better for me. Too bad they didn't make a black one...

    So for anyone who likes one of the colored ones but is affraid it may be too "loud", you can be assured that none of them look particularly loud and they all look somewhat more conservative with just a little bit of color to them.

    I think the color is a personal thing. I do think the Crimson is "louder" than I hoped for, some of the pictures online made it looker a bit darker than it is in person. I really wish they had a darker color like the dark blue on the 750 available.

    Yeah, but they need to differentiate by color, so that people wouldn't look at a dark blue 680 and think it was a 750.

    Besides, navy blue says conservative businessman, and the 680 is meant to be iPod nano hip and cool. Come to think of it, that's probably why there isn't a navy blue iPod nano. They have the graphite to satisfy the conservatives. All the other colors are for another audience.

    Still, they should have some sort of blue. It's not my favorite color, but it is most people's favorite color.

    Now if they had the right shade of green, I definitely would have chosen that over the white. Maybe in six months we'll see some more colors become available, if the 680 sells well enough.

    Dark Blue would have been by far my first choice.

    Be careful how you joke around here!!! You know whats going to happen now, don't you? Tomorrow, that genius at CrunchGear is going to pick up this thread and consider it hard news, and the next thing you know there will be a story in CrunchGear with the Headline:

    "Palm to Release Blue Tie Treo 680....with Missing Microphone!!!"

    ....and then there will be threads in this very forum from people everywhere from Florida to Cincinnati, insisting that they heard about a Blue Tie Treo, and that it was a fact!!!
