I think Apple patented black rectangles with rounded corners. I guess somebody beat them to patenting white ones. And I would suppose no one will contest "pebble blue."

It has to do with what they were going for...nature...white and blue are nature colors. Like pebbles in water, hence the lock screen...water...nature.

This is why it doesn't come in black. Apparently Apple patented the TV.

Samsung's lawyers were all over this phone to stop apples law suits before the phone was released, so I've heard. That might account for the lack of black s3's

Is time to get some others color, black is too long being use. The pebble blue is dark enough and look nice for user that love dark color. (apparently black)

For the number of people who will wrap up this babyin a black case, the pebble blue barely makes sense, but I still got that one.
