Who cares about the white. The black is fine.

So, I can assume that the iPhone 5 is going to be the same form as the 4. Okay.

Had a white 3g, white 3gs, and then they forced the black 4 on me... Not cool... When it comes to phones I'm very racist...

I think the black looks classier, more "high-end." White looks like a toy. Plus the bezel is slightly more distracting.

Right. Considering that one of the most popular gaming devices out there should steer clear of resembling a toy, it's a wonder why anyone bothers making cars or clothes for grownups in anything other than black!

:D

iPhone 5 to be entirely constructed of matter atoms, not antimatter?

Apple Insider is reporting that according to source familiar with Apple production lines that the iPhone 5 will be constructed entirely from normal matter atoms.

This is in stark contrast to last week's report from BGR that claimed the iPhone 5 will be constructed entirely out of antimatter atoms.

I don't think there should be an option at all. That's apple business model right? If you don't like what we are offering... get a cover!

There never really was a white iPhone 4

I have news for you guys. Apple created the “idea” of a white iPhone in order to take control of the media.

In an interview exclusive with Steve Jobs he goes on to say …” Apple makes such amazing products and we get the press whipped up so well, we can announce a product that we have absolutely no intention to ever make…”

Its all about marketing. You can watch the interview here: goo.gl/HWvZF

I still don't have an iPhone4. I kept waiting for the white version.

Black or white are boring non-colors anyway. Give me something with an actual wavelength.
