    Initially I was about to freak out that the price is $50 higher than the Slate model just for a different, unfinished color trim.... But then I saw that this one is the dual sim BBE100-5, which helps justify the price increase I guess

    $449 for Slate, $499 for Champagne.

    Both dual SIM.

    But who knows where the price will actually settle.

    Yep -- $50 upgrade for the colors, it appears. Bet the Atomic is $50 higher too.

    Surprising? Not really. Did you see the trolling that Payless shoes pulled off in NYC recently? They managed to sell a decent number of pairs of $25 shoes for north of $500 simply by claiming they were a (non-existent!) "luxury" label and got myriad feedback on social media complimenting both the styling AND manufacturing (e.g. build quality, etc.)

    So is $50 unreasonable for a color choice? I dunno. My car was available in several colors and two of them had $500 upcharges! I didn't pay it but judging from the ones I see on the road of the same make and model plenty of people did.

    100 dollars for the color variants. Slate here in US is down to 399 on the Best Buy site

    I could understand the Atomic being a bit more because at least the keyboard frets match and it looks awesome... maybe the champagne should have been in between them, as in:

    Slate $399
    Champagne $449
    Atomic $499

    If you slap a black case on the champagne, there's absolutely no way to tell it's that trim color (as they all have same finish on rear logo and camera ring) so it would look like a generic black keyboard device from the front.

    I think I've complained enough about the champagne model lol, I'm sorry but I just can't help it

    I think it’s only $399 with AT&T activation for Slate only. No Atomic in US at Best Buy

    Yes, Atomic is there now too.

    Yes, there is a $50 discount on the Slate if you commit to a plan.

    $50 discount on Verizon activation (postpaid) only, and only on Slate.

    Still no WFC however, so no thank you.

    Yep, spoke to soon. My Best Buy has Slate stocked but looks like Champagne and Atomic are in December 9th and 10th.
