I'm new, but I'll take that bet! I'm guessing that Amazon will let you buy a Kindle in any colour you like, as long as it's white.

Maybe a while after launch, when people have complained long enough, they might relent and break out with off-white or, for the thrill seeker, gasp, black. The tone of the article seemed like they mean for the hardware to fade into the background and be as inoffensive and bland as possible.

Yes, exactly.
