    Since Apple rid the world of the black/slate iPhone, do you think they'll do the same with the next iteration of the iPad Mini? If the iPad 5 adopts design similar to the Mini, do you think it'll also be restricted to Space Gray and the black/slate combo will be gone from Apples lineup?
    How about a gold iPad Mini/5?

    I know this is all speculative, but I just figured I'd see what others think.

    I suspect the mini and the iPad 5 will both come in white/silver and black/grey. I think the all black is gone for those just like it is for the 5S.

    God I hope not. The new space grey is horrid. Might consider the gold, but I'd hate having a white faced phone

    Why? It makes the blacks look much deeper when they aren't surrounded by pure black.
    Also, less finger prints.

    I personally like having the black with black bezel, I think it gives me a more immersive experience. One may think that the contrast of the white makes the screen look better, but I think it's the opposite; it distracts

    It looks that way, with space gray also replacing black/slate on the nano and touch. So my new iPhone 5s, my new iPad 5 and my new nano will all be space gray. Maybe I should buy a dark gray wallet after my current black wallet kills itself.:)

    Hmmmm! Quite an unanswered question.

    I'm gonna aim for the Gold 5s on Friday, but then it won't match my iPad mini (unless they release a Gold in October).
    ((Maybe they'll update the mini without retina, but add a Gold to compromise?!))

    If all I did was watch videos I'd agree with you, but the majority of what I use my iPad for has either colorful or light colored backgrounds, I find the white far less distracting. White also hides fingerprints better.

    ;)

    I've used both (not for iPad, but iPhones), but never owned a white one per say. Just used my friends for a few hours (in white). It's definitely personal preference, I was just stating my side. Also I couldn't care less about fingerprints. I would take a black/slate iPad mini any day over a white/silver, even if it meant finger prints. Cus I just like the color scheme

    Space appears BLACK. They should have named it "moon gray."

    Military colors

    Apple may want to consider colors suitable for Military Operations in Urban Terrain.

    There's been no reports of scratching on the Ipad slate grey model as lots of people use cases anyway.

    I think the slate grey will stay.

    Well if no one saw the rumor today. iPad Mini is probably gonna ditch the slate.

    Because they're offering it in Space Grey
