White front or black... any annoyance with white ?

I'm getting the new IPT5 this weekend as I will be going downtown to the Apple store. I was thinking about getting the red one but I much prefer the black front IPT5.

I know I can buy the black one and put a coloured case on it but I'd rather not.

I was wondering if anyone who got the 'non black' IPT5 (white front) have any regrets ... is the white contour annoying after a while ?

Tks,

My IPT 4g was white, as is my IPT 5g. I don't notice any problem with it being white verses black.

I prefer the black - the white border just seems pointless to me, as in the photo of my Nano next to the black ipt5 here:

That would be because you've selectively chosen an application with a dark background. I prefer the white for the homescreen, menus, web browsing, and some album art. The black is preferable with dark apps, when the device is off, some album art, and videos. It's really a tossup.

I have a white iPod touch 4th gen and would get a black 5th if i was given the option, just for the sake of change. I wish they offered all the colors with the choice of a white or black front. I'd really like the blue with a black front. I guess that would be a logistical nightmare for Apple, though.

Agree 100%. I had a black iPod Tough 4th Gen, so I got the white 5th for the sake of change too. Change is nice. Makes the device feel that much more different and new.

I would LOVE to see the new colors come in black fronts (which is what will probably be the next "revolutionary update" for the iPod Touch since the major upgrades only come in every 2 years) The white fronts do not go well with the black camera and it may just be me, but I can't stand having a little black dot on the which front, which is why I bought the black iPod Touch 5g, even though I would have preferred a different color.
