Kindle Wifi Only Available in Graphite?

For some reason I thought you can buy either version Kindle 3 (3g+wifi or wifi only) in both white and graphite. Looking this morning, only the the 3g is available in white or graphite.

Anyone have a wifi only K3 in white?

27spots - The K3 wifi only is not available in white; it's only in graphite.

The white version is bad anyways, it reduces perceived contrast on the screen (text looks lighter due to contrast), the plastic gets dirty and you'll want to clean it a lot from your hands, and it discolors/turns yellow with age and exposure to sunlight.

This is why most PC/electronics manufacturers have tended towards black over the years and away from white/beige =X
