Purple or Lime, really AT&T?

A bit of a rant.... I finally got to see the new AT&T offerings for WP8. I didn't really like the 920, but I really loved the 8x. It was the perfect size and I loved the soft touch back. I was sold. So, I headed back home to check prices. To my surprise, AT&T is only offering the 8X in a purple and lime color. I am over 30 and honestly do not want a phone with bright colors.

Is AT&T really not offering the 8X is plain black? Isn't this pretty much a death knell for the phone?
