I can't decide whether to get black or blue iPod touch. Which one should I get? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both colors. I really like both colors and I am ok with both.

Thank you.

Both colors have the same specifications, assuming you are talking about 5th Generation iPod Touch. As for aesthetics I think the Black is better because the face plate matches the color. Where the Blue has a white faceplate.

So pick whatever you think looks best ;)

Black looks extremely clean and everything is black. When watching movies and using apps that haven't been optimised for the larger screen, it would look better. It will also have a higher resale value than a blue one if you decide to sell it later on. Downside, shows fingerprints.

White/Blue is more fun and exciting, the white bezel won't show fingerprints but the white bezel makes the ipod look a bit messier because you can see the camera and the black outline of the screen.

I'm buying the black one because I have a white iPod Touch 4g and want to switch it up a bit. It really is up to personal preference though.
