Wouldn't pay a cent for this; the hardware is almost 12 months old.

And with the iPhone 5 probably months away from being announced, there's a very high probability that you'd be silly to buy this. (Yeah, there are rumors it won't be released until later than "normal," perhaps September--but personally I wouldn't take my chances.)

And yet still it's the best phone out there.

Perhaps, but the price is 12 months old too. Also, its successor should be around soon, or people will leave the iOS platform for more powerful phones. I'd feel like a sucker with my sluggish iPhone 4 if Apple doesn't release an iPhone 5 this summer.

I'm an iPhone owner myself, but somehow I doubt that you're right.

Well, it's a pretty subjective opinion. Tech-spec-wise, iP4 has never been the best phone even when it was announced, but it's certainly the best iOS phone, and most people on these forums feel that iOS > all

If they had a black face and a white back I would go that route! I preferred the look of the white 3G and 3G(s) as the type of case(s) I use look better with the white back but I'm not a fan of the white front. I have a white iPad 2 and am still getting used to it.

So what if people want to buy the phone!!! Some people are taking this to serious. It's a good looking phone end of story. The iPhone 4 is still the current generation and nobody knows nothing about the iPhone 5 so stop acting like you do.

There are many people that purchased iPads in the holidays, even though the successor was just months away. And I think a lot of people with iPhones skip a generation unless it is a radical change. I know many people with 3GS that skipped the 4, and I had a 3G and skipped the 3GS.

In any event, I doubt the target is black iPhone 4 owners. And I doubt those that really wanted an iPhone 4 10 months ago but in white waited. It is just for those who still might buy one now anyway, and now they have a choice.

I just noticed this picture shows two ear speakers. My iPhone 4 only has one. Am I late to this realization? :confused:

Thats the proximity sensor which is visible with the white iPhone. It's there on your black iPhone but just not visible

Is there another iOS phone?

Unless they're using the CDMA white iPhone in their ads, it looks like the antenna has been redesigned on the GSM model. Maybe they both have the same antenna now?

What is that extra black line ...

Just wondering what that extra black line is over the ear speaker? Is that the light sensor so it knows when it is close to your head? I have an iPhone 4 and I don't notice it anywhere ...
