Most of us wear black suit with white shirt for marriage as well as for funerals. It is considered as formal dress among us. My Alto Suzuki is black. My mobile is black. My shoes are black and so is my umbrella but I like blue tie and white socks.

Most of the gadgets and accessories you have mentioned started off in Western countries and England specially where black is beautiful for all these...and conducive for the weather too.
Black is a sombre and dignified colour which also retains heat more than any other colour ...by absorbing it...and helps keep warm .
For cold weathers like England...they were the right choice too.

I am not sure whether it was real vent to Indian condition. Probably black does not reveal the charecter of the person as easily as other colours.

Black is beautiful if used rarely on those days there were very few vehicles so people used to prefer black colour but when black is used extensively it looses its charm that is one of the reason why Bajaj which is sticking to black colour is struggling to remain in top
