    Default White iPhone 4 Officially Delayed by Apple



    At the recent "Antennagate" press conference, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said the white iPhone 4 will begin shipping by the end of this month.

    Not going to to happen.

    On Friday, Apple confirmed the suspicions of many by revealing that the manufacturing difficulties long reported with the white version of its updated smartphone have prompted the company the break down and admit that it simply won't be available until later this year. "White models of Apple's new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year," Apple stated this morning. "The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected."

    During Steve Jobs' presentation at the finger-pointing press conference that many are still talking about, the Apple chief indicated that his company would have its hands full for quite some time preparing the millions of free protective cases promised to every iPhone 4 customer through Sept. 30. It now appears that the manufacturing complexities of the white iPhone, combined with new production demands, and heightened attention toward not releasing a potentially flawed product have prompted the company to officially withdraw its commitment to shipping the white iPhone 4 in the coming days.

    During Apple's earnings conference call earlier this week with reporters and analysts, chief operating officer Tim Cook was pressured yet again to address when Apple may finally reconcile its longstanding issues with both supply an demand. "We honestly don't know is the answer," he said, "We have been pleasantly surprised at how fast this product has gotten out of the chute. If you look at how long it took us to sell the first million iPods, the 20-plus months versus the one month of iPad, it is a phenomenal difference."

    Apple is nothing but disappointments lately. Kind of getting ridiculous.

    Apple fails but hopefully when the white iPhone 4 comes out it won't have any problems I doubt it but could be true

    So the report(s) on the 'end of month' shipment being a smokescreen was true...

    Well if they would have shipped it and the White turned Yellow... Then I wonder how much more disappointing that would be? I find it quite amazing that no matter what they do some will not be happy.

    Spin on article...meh

    When is Apple NOT frustrating the majority?

    If u don't want to wait for a white one then just get a black one....it's just color. :-/

    I don't get it, the white ones look outrageously ugly to me. Anywho, wouldn't it be worth waiting a few extra months to have all the hardware issues completely resolved?

    Apple is now nothing but disappointment. I rather Steve not mentioning the white at all in WWDC. I was expecting to get the white by end of this month. I guess we have to wait longer.
