  • 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 hate to say it, but whoever waited a year to get the iPhone in a different color is an idiot. Also, the iPhone 5 doesnīt seem to be too far away, so even IF you waited a year for this or just intended to buy an iPhone because you have the money right now, I suggest not buying it because it will be outdated in a few months.

      I totally agree...it's absolutely pointless. Guess apple figured hey let's hold the "White" iPhone 4 back almost a whole year so we can stretch the sales even more. Oh well, woman will eat it up I guess...I'll wait for the five!

      Uhh... dumb. So much for an iPhone 5 June release. I think people were over the fact that they couldn't get their iPhone 4 in white, now they're gonna bring that whole mess up again? And if there is a June or July iPhone 5 release, those white iPhone 4 people are gonna be aaaaaaannnngggrrrryy setting off yet another debate. Then again, maybe they won't be because their precious white iPhone 4 is finally in their hands...

      I disagree. I like the looks of it. Except that you can see the sensor above the speaker, thatīs a turnoff. Oh, wait, you are right, itīs ugly

      This might work out for Apple if iPhone 5 is indeed delayed. Plus there are those people that really don't follow or understand Apples patterns and just want the newest iPhone because they are finally eligible to get one cheaply. It's not pointless for Apple, just for us.

      I actually think they're going to surprise people at WWDC in June with the announcement of the white iPhone 4, instead of announcing the iPhone 5. This just makes it all the more likely that they will put out a white iPhone. 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.

      Iphone 5 just means its the fifth generation. Yeah and i love other phone company's saying its a 4G phone with no 4G in all area's yet. Just like when 3G came out.

      I for one am happy =D

      I got the iPhone 4 when it first came out (I was first in line and everything haha) and was sad that I couldn't have one in white..

      Now a family member of mine (who doesn't follow tech news, and their also 47..) wants an iPhone and said he'll get the white one and we'll swap..

      Sounds like a plan to me... Can't wait for my white iPhone 4 =D

      And to all those saying to wait.. Well I don't really plan on getting the iPhone 5, unless it has some awesome feature I can't live without =D

      What is the differences between the factory white and the 100$ whites from ebay?

      This proves iPhone 5 isn't coming out until late 2011. Maybe a verizon/Att release is due at the same time.

      I think apple missed their window with the white iphone. Everyone is already focusing on the iPhone 5, regardless if it actually is announced at WWDC or not. I'm glad I didn't wait and just went ahead and got a white conversion.
