Does anyone elses iPod Touch screen display blacks in a negative color?

I just got my iPod touch and I don't know whether this is normal or not.

When I view movies with dark scenes, or pictures with dark areas, the dark area looks like a negative. The best way to describe this effect is when you look at an LCD from above or below at an angle, you know how the colors almost become negatives?

This is how it looks to me, even when staring at it dead on. Does anyone else have this with their iPod Touch or iPhone?

I asked around and have found about three other people who have this issue with their iPhone and one with the iPod Touch.

Is my unit defective, or all blacks really displayed this poorly?

I'm not sure that this is a universal problem. Some posters on the apple message board report that they have better screens. My ipod has this problem, however.

I bought mine at the SoHo NYC store. Can everyone report where they got theirs if they have the issue? Or where they got it if they don't.

Thanks. I think we're also having a conversation on the Apple Discussion board
