  • 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.

      Wouldn't make sense for Apple to release white iPhone 4 when iPhone 5 is just around the corner. I'll believe it when I see it...

      Have you done any research about what a huge fail that phone is because AT&T is throttling their 4G bandwidth? They haven't even enabled the actual "4G" switch in their system yet. Also sales of that phone and dock have been so dismal that Moto's stocks plunged after their initial sales reports. You have to shell out $500 for the phone/dock combo AND add the extra $20 per month hot spot fee to get that discount. Good luck with that.

      I can't even begin to imagine how many people will buy this thing and realize how bad they screwed up when the next iPhone drops. Most of them are probably reading this post. Can't say you weren't warned.

      Think I'll just wait for the white iPhone 5.

      Apparently the iPhone 5 isn't going into production until September and wont be available till late 2011 or early 2012... heard it on redmondpie... is this true?

      PS if it is then it would be worth buying the iPhone 4 white if you wanted it badly... but I'm glad I got the black one cuz it would have been a helluva wait to get the white...

      With white, the screen doesn't look as bright. (I didn't mean for that to rhyme.)

      I have noticed this but overall my white iPhone 4 is a beauty lol
      My best advice lower cost wise is buy the conversion black to white service cuz if ur not at phone upgrade stage u will be paying full price for a white iPhone 4. There is no difference in camera or build quality it's just a color parts swap IMHO.

      All this points to is a confirmation that the 5 will be delayed.

      Hurts my heart. I really wanted the White iPhone 4 so bad. I just didn't want to wait all this time. Hopefully my next iPhone will be in white. :-)

      hey, what ever gets apple money right?
