Do you guys like the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in black or white? I'm back into the white look. In fact, I just bought an iPod touch in white. The rest of my older iPads and iPhone are in black. I just think it says Apple to me again. Especially with most of the Andriod devices coming in black now.

Black for me, I think white looks cheap

I like the black bezels because they seem to offer more screen contrast than white ones. The white bezels also make white backgrounds look a little off color wise. At least in a bright room when you compare it to the stark white bezel. I've also found that white devices discolor more over time.

Try running a video on white device and a black device at the same time. White pulls your eyes away from the image, especially if there are black bars between the content and the bezel.

Viewing aside...

I like white iPod touch, black iPad, black iPhone.

For woman I like the white iPhone. I picked one up for the GF.
Woman tend to like the white iPad much more than men do. Same with the phone.

I also find the white to be distracting to the eyes. My vote is for black.

Had a black phone before my 3GS and since I've stuck with white as I find I don't tend to leave it laying around and look around for my phone. I've never lost my iPhone, lost my old Rzr countless times.

I go with white because it's a bit different - everyone has a black phone or tablet. I also find white works better with non-black leather cases.
