    I just saw the black and white ipads side by side this morning. I still couldn't decide which I liked better or which "worked" better with the screen.

    But one thing I noticed was that the white iPad had a slightly blue/pink tint to it, while the black ipad was a more natural, warm tone.

    Probably not enough to notice on its own, but side by side it was very noticeable.

    Has anyone done a side by side?

    All screens vary. My last 3 iPhones have looked different from my wife's. It has nothing to do with the bezel color.

    My guess is it's a "panel lottery." Apple is almost certainly using more than one supplier for the screens and each manufacturer's panel would be slightly different although they'd still satisfy the minimum requirements. I once had two iPod Touches manufactured a few weeks apart but with very different color temperatures on their screens..

    Darn, I was almost set on getting the black one for the non-blueish screen.

    The white frame may also be affecting your perception. If the light reflected by the white iPad frame is warmer than the screen, the screen will look bluer through an optical illusion.
