I had this email from O2 today, though some of you may be interested. I'm holding out for a white one, but if it isn't soom I'll get my friend in Italy to get one and then buy out the contract: Enjoy: hank you for emailing us about the new 3G iPhone. I understand your concern that you want to purchase the new 3G iPhone.
