    What if...
    Apple releases it on September 30th to coincide with the date that they will reconsider the antenna situation, in which they will present a slightly revamped Antenna system on BOTH colors, and announce a small fee to be paid by the original iPhone 4 model owners if they want the new antenna.

    Black = High Speed and Low Drag (Comes with your choice of Camouflage or Blood Red case)

    White = Danety and Feminine (Comes with your choice of Hannah Montana or Justin Beiber Case)

    How is a color more difficult to manufacture? Quit insulting our intelligence.

    Darn.

    I was waiting and waiting, but now I'll be getting a black one for now. When the white comes out I'll probably get it, but maybe not by then.

    That the 2 minutes to research how the iPhone glass is made and realize it isn't just "pick color, done".

    White is a pain to get right.

    You probably don't have any background in manufacturing, but White and Black are totally different beasts when talking about finishes.

    This is probably a marketing trick. It makes sense to me before the i4 come out it was all good news on praises in the press. Now that they have been plagued if the iron out all the kinks the press is bound to get excited for the white iPhone and do all new reviews and not find the same problems. Bam apple will be back to the golden standard for a few months. That's my opinion atleast.

    The Apple store reps are usually a week behind common knowledge. It's delayed, they just didn't get the memo

    $200, that's $13 more than the cost to manufacture the entire phone. Ridiculous.

    Do you understand the concept of bulk and buying orders in the hundreds of thousands (millions even) generally gets you a lower price per unit rather than individually buying one?

    That said, Enfadget did the switcheroo a bit ago and they got the parts for around $125 from elsewhere.

    That blows. I've been waiting, but I guess I'll have to get black and just put a skin on it.

    Yes I do understand that concept. Have you ever heard of gauging prices when demand is high and there is no other alternative? Regardless of the bulk, $200 is way overpriced for 2 external hardware components of the phone.
