I think Apple is delaying the white iPhone so people don't return their black iPhone!

Lots of people planned on, or are planning on returning their black iPhone the last day they are able to return it, and getting the white one as soon as it becomes available.

Now with Apple's offer to let you return it without penalty for 30 days, Apple is afraid a lot of people are going to return their black iPhones to get white ones.

With this vague announcement that Apple won't be releasing the white iPhone anytime soon, only people who really really want the white iPhone, to the point where they're willing to go three months without an iPhone 4, will get one.

I agree and said this earlier. I bet the white phones will pop up once enough are out of the 30 day window
