  • Reuters: Apple's White iPhone 4 Finally On The Way


    Could it finally be upon us? According to a new report from Reuters, the iPhone 4 is not only in production after a short delay (insert sarcasm here), but it may be available by the end of this month. The reason for the reversal in unavailability is due to the supposed resolution of various production and manufacturing setbacks that have effectively kept this product from consumers for almost one full year.

    Two people familiar with the situation tell Reuters in a report published moments ago that Apple's suppliers and production partners are now moving full steam ahead on the long-awaited white iPhone 4. Based on information provided to the news outlet, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd. (which is part of Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group) is now actively assembling the white iPhone 4.

    Although the "sources" contributing to the report aren't officially on the record and not revealing their names, their confirmation of the white iPhone 4's looming debut is consistent with what we've been hearing from other in-the-know personalities for quite some time - including even a few big name at Apple.

    As some will recall, it was just last month when Apple's Senior Vice President of Marketing Phil Schiller went on the record (albeit via Twitter) to confirm that the wait was almost over for the iPhone 4. According to Schiller himself, the long-anticipated white handset would become available "by spring." This timetable is obviously consistent with that which has been presented today by Reuters.

      I have a white iPhone and only use a bumper. I'm sure if people were to get a white iPhone they would try to show it off without a huge case. Mostly everyone has the black iPhone so theres a need for people to express themselves and be different from the rest, so huge cases of various styles make sense at that point. Of course, this is from a cosmetic POV.

Im just not understanding this?

      I just got my converted white iPhone 4 back a couple days and it's just cosmetic and sexxy device. Most iPhone 4 owners have a black model. It's just better to have choice. I covered this in a YouTube vid, so I'm happy to have a white iPhone 4.

      I would personally wait but like others have stated, not everyone stays up on the Apple iDevice refresh cycle. Bring on iPhone 5. I would've bought the white 4 had it been available on launch day. Oh well.

      Doesn't prove anything. Remember Verizon isn't getting the iPhone 5 until December or around that.
      Apple can't afford to release 2 mobile devices at the same time. It would be a complete mess. GSM iphone 5 June/July. iPod's September, CDMA iPhone 5 December.

      It doesn't look as good as the black but it's nice. Apple finally settled with their white button issue.

On the plus side, this will give them the necessary insight to sell a white iPhone 5 at the beginning of the next launch.

      Besides, who coined up the "iPhone 5" term anyway? Wouldn't it be more likely to be called iPhone 4G or 4Gs? It would seem more likely given the next model would support 4G bands.
      No iPhone (Generation)5 by September means a shiny new Motorola Atrix with lapdock...

      A little too late?

      Oh wait maybe this why the next generation iPhone won't be released until the fall possibly around the holidays.

      I waited for the white one... then gave up and waiting for the 5.... however I stinks because I want to upgrade to 5 however I don't want to wait until Sept if that is when they are going to release it...

      As for the white, its clean looking, classy, elegant for woman just as black is sexy for men....

      I'm skeptical on a 5th version release....
      after last year's debacle with the iphone 4 being leaked, Apple may just be leaking false info.. anyone thought of that? Apple loves "surprising" people.. i dont put it past them, and they follow a schedule.. don't expect them not to deviate from that.. iPhone 5 release in June or July.. like always..

      What I dont understand is why people are flipping out about this thinking just because a white 4 is coming out, that the iphone 5 wont?? Its been Apples reputation to only have one model per year, but what would be wrong with putting out 2, or even 3 different models? My wife and myself got new iphones a few weeks ago. I had to have the 4 because I wanted the latest and greatest, but she wanted to tiptoe into apple to see if she likes it so she got the $49 3Gs. She simply loves it and it also saved me $150!! I think apple should have atleast three levels of iphones at different costs. That would make the market share much bigger, and give us (the consumer) more options. I personally like having options. All the haters, give it a rest. If you are an apple fan, then you should be happy to those who want this. If anything, it will make getting an iphone 5 that much easier when they are released. Those people that get the white 4 now, will not be able to get the 5 then. More stock for you.

      Ya sure about that? Rumors have it that the iPhone 5 won't be released til fall of this year. White iPhone is way sexy. I wish it would have came out when it was supposed to.
