    Nope.

    Hypothetical situation for those waiting...
    If the white iPhone is released in December, are you still going to get it? I'd just wait for the next revision in June 2011.

    The white iPhone is starting to seem like it is apple's red headed step child. It is in all the family photos, but it is never seen in person and when asked about it they give some weak excuse as to why it couldn't make it to this years family picnic.

    I'd still get it because this current black one I have is going to be a hand-me-down to a relative. They will use their upgrade to swap me the white iPhone. And I am upgrade eligible for the iPhone 5 next summer to change again later.

    You could swap in a black iP4 for a white iP4 for free

    If it's December, I might wait for the next revision. It depends if my 3g is still working.

    I'm thinking we may have to wait until the iPhone 5.

    I personally feel that apple is yet to release a white iphone not because of manufacturing 'delays' but rather because they are attempting to rectify the antenna issue that has been pestering some of the current iphone users. If so it is possible that the delay may be for the fact that the method to correct said issue would take too much time and/or cut into their margin of profit. However this is simply my opinion of the situation.

    Here's the thing: The instant I break down and get a black iPhone 4, the white one will become available.

    Maybe that's what's holding up the white iPhone 4's release. It isn't misaligned cases or color/opacity problems or overheating that turns the white iPhone yellow or the fixing of the antenna. The reason the white iPhone hasn't come out yet? It's because I haven't broken down and bought the black one.

    I still firmly believe the "manufacturing issues" are total B.S. They had a large batch of white iPhones on hand at the iPhone 4 launch event. Those iPhones apparently were made up to apple's standards. The white iPhones were THE model that journalists/bloggers were allowed to mess around with.

    Why did that batch not face the same manufacturing issues?

    Well they still do have it pictured on the website. I don't see why they would have it up if it is going to be another 3-4 months for it become available. That just doesn't make any sense.

    Don't think that if the white iphone was imminent, SJ would of mentioned it? He mentioned an update that will not even be available until November.

    I email Steve nearly every day asking if there is any update on the white iPhone. I've probably been blocked at this point, but I'm a persistent SOB. :)

    "Aye, aye! It was that accursed white whale that razeed me; made a poor pegging lubber of me for ever and a day!...

    I'll chase him round Good Hope, and round the Horn, and round the Norway Maelstrom, and round perdition's flames before I give him up.

    And this is what ye have shipped for, men! To chase that white whale on both sides of land, and over all sides of earth, till he spouts black blood and rolls fin out."
