I have a white iphone, would probably opt for black if I was in the market for an ipad.

I wouldn't colour-match them specifically per-se, but I have always had a thing for white, so both my iphone and ipad are white.

It depends on the materials used, I have a black 4S (and love it), but chosen a white iPad mini due to the fact that the black it is anodized aluminum. I consider to upgrade to iPhone 5S, would then choose white if it still uses anodized aluminum. I bought the new iPod nano recently, in silver, based on the same fact as well. I would love to see a black front (covered under the touch-glass in combination with a silver back.

I would choose black for both. Not because I want them to match, but because I prefer black devices rather than white.

Absolutely. Unless there was no way I could get a white iPad Mini, then I would get the black. Otherwise, I would certainly want to have my iPad Mini match my white iPhone 5.

I'm always on the fence about "matching" devices.

Alas, I have an iPhone 5 in white/silver and black on black iPad Mini.

Initially I thought about getting the white/silver iPad Mini to match the iPhone, but I don't use them together so matching didn't seem necessary. Plus the black on black iPad Mini just looks awesome IMHO.

I like my Apple iDevices to be the classic white. So I went white iPad Mini and white iPhone 5. Looks sick!

Black iPhone 5 and Black iPad mini.

It has nothing to do with color matching, only that I like black devices.

IMO no one should get a white idevice. The sliver of white plastic between the glass and the bezzel on the white iPhone 4's and 4s' can get yellowed and dirty over time. And no one should get a white I pad because when you are watching a video in low light it can glair a little.

IMO black looks more sleek and sexy but i am also a fan of case modding my out of warranty Idevices. The color changing logo mod on the 4/4s looks better on black. The clear housings for the 3's were sick. Apple should do limited edition colors like candy red or carbon fiber or raw titanium.

This is tough. I'm looking into getting an iPad mini to share with my sister but I never considered that I have a black iPhone and she has a white iPhone. I might just get black to match our other iPads.

I have a black iphone and a white Ipad 2 which im considered changing to white Ipad mini.

My black iphone though, i should have gotten a white one because dust aren't so visible if you hold a white one and using a white silicon case. For black, it just get really annoy and i ended up with a bumper type case to get rid of such problem.

I've always selected white when the option is there. Apple does make black look better, but I always associate it with PCs.

I love the look of the black/slate, but I have chosen all white. I like how much cleaner it looks even when dirty. The black models get all greasy quickly.
