Samsung Nordic has said that there will be no blue at launch without really giving a reason more than to say they were just more popular. Although they said this to a number of retailers in Sweden, they have said it is true of all the Nordic countries. One of the retailers got them to offer a "hopefully maybe" later in the same week, but other retailers are now backtracking on the blue, pushing dates back to 15-19 June.
This story from NZ sounds more likely than their failing to get the mix right as I'm sure the operator pre-orders should have given them solid data as to what to expect.
My only qualms with the white one is the risk of glare from the white frame around the screen outdoors. I have a Samsung Media Player 5.0 that's white and I quite like it, but the frame around the screen itself is actually black.
Still, faced with deciding between a white early next week or a blue 2-3 weeks down the line, I'll go with the white.

Maybe Sammy should just release it in three colors: marble white and low-rider bondo multi-color at launch, followed by pebble blue next quarter.
