Space Gray. It will be hard to resist a product with that color and name. Might have to rethink my plan to go gold. Or maybe upgrade both my iPhone and my wife's.

It is just a different stylization of the name, and only the name of the device... A stylization is a different way of writing something to make it look more catchy, or cool, ... you get the idea =)

From Wikipedia: "Stylized" may mean the adoption of any style in any context, and in American English is often used for the typographic style of names, as in "AT&T" is also stylized as "ATT" and "AT&T."

So, "iPhone 5S" is stylized as "iPhone 5s."

Here are some other examples:
  • Lady Gaga's upcoming album is legally named "Artpop", but stylized as "ARTPOP"
  • The band Nine Inch Nails' logo features a stylized version of their abbreviated name "NIN," to wit: Nine_Inch_Nails_logo.svg.png
  • The soft drink Tab is stylized as TaB

Space Gray is a contradiction in terms. Space is the area between bodies of matter, i.e., all sources of light, Therefore, space is actually black.
