It's Color in the fact that it uses shades of blue instead of shades of
gray. The dark blue is actually a switched off cell. I know it sounds
backwards, but when I disconnected the video cable once, and only the
backlight was on, the whole thing was dark blue.

I tried a little program that reverses the color, until something else
changes it, and it's actually easier to read (as long as the contrast is set
right). It's actually easier to read than some CRT's that I've seen,
because the letters aren't fuzzed out at the edges.
