    I don't see a poll. But my answer is:

    Nope.

    EDIT: Oh, there it is. Still nope.

    You stand a better chance of a glass of ice water in Hell than you do of getting a white iPhone 4 on launch day. :apple:

    Nobody will have them launch day. The only reason there is still hope of a white iPhone on launch is due to some of the forum posters that are still in denial of the facts presented to them :p

    The front is physically different in the pics we have seen.
    My guess is they changed that or had a problem with that part, putting the white later in the manufacturing process.
    That's the flag that went up for me when I first saw the white one. It's not exactly the same as the black model part. Therefore two different models being produced. Not just a different color.

    While I hope everyone who is saying its very unlikely is wrong - it seems very unlikely. I called my Apple Store and they said they had no information regarding what would be shipped to them. Maybe, but very unlikely. I don't know what is holding Apple back, but I don't like it. Keep your fingers crossed, the white is very sexy IMO.

    And what might the facts be, and who were they presented to? The whole point of the white iPhone mystery is that no facts have been disclosed. We would love to have some facts. If you have been presented with facts, please enlighten those of us who have not. The only known fact is that white phones were not available for preorder.

    I think the UK might see iPhone 4's in White on launch day

    Fact:

    The front pieces are not the same. If that's not enough well it's still a different color.

    Draw your own conclusions or see mine above.

    Note that the home buttons are white as well.

    drawing conclusions on the similarities or dissimilarities between the white and black iphone 4's is completely irrelevant - that was never the debate. i don't recall anyone in this thread disputing the two phone's differences. as the thread states, this is a discussion about who thinks that the apple store will have the white iphone 4 on launch day......whether or not it's engineered identically to it's black counterpart. gee whiz.

    It's a poll with a discussion and people are discussing it. Some people are over looking or not aware of the facts.
    It's relevant to the poll.

    Look at the pictures of the two and try to imagine why there may not be white available. There is evidence to suggest a few things, and it's totally relevant.

    Sure check this out

    Above the earpiece.

    My theory is that they decided to cover the sensors so they would not show through the white as little dots and look like cameras or something.
    So they did a little cover and concealment and that either created a production problem or they scrapped it and went with something else.

    Of course other than that, the color and home button color are technically different parts.

    Yeah I'm confused as to the relevance of manufacturing differences as well. We know they are different. So what? All that means is that it will be delayed (which it was). Now we're asking the question: Has enough time passed for them to fix the problem and maybe get at least a few units out to Apple stores for launch day?

    Edit: To clarify, what I mean is that the black iPhone has been in manufacturing for weeks now. Let's say for the sake of argument it took them 4 weeks to build up a stock of 600,000 units for launch day. Now then, as many of you have pointed out, the white iPhone probably had a manufacturing snag. That's all good and fine, but if you say for example they spent 3 weeks fixing it, they could still manufacture 150,000 units before launch day. So the question being posed in this thread is not "do you think the white iPhone has an engineering flaw" but rather "do you think they will have any on launch day", which of course it could even if they had to do some last minute tweaking to the design.

    The optimist in me says, sure, there's always a chance. The realist in me says not a chance in hell.

    Doubt it.

    While a part of me thinks that Apple stores will have a few, the more I think of it the less it makes sense. Why would they alienate their best customers who were chomping at the bit to pre-order?

    PLUS.. Having 2 "launch" days is rite up Apple's alley. Double the hype. Double the exposure. Double the smiles from shareholders.

    Apple has never made an announcement that the white iPhone 4 will not be for sale on time. The only 'official' word we have from Apple is the fact that they are simply not up for pre-order. If it really wont' go on sale on the 24th, I'm sure they'll be making an announcement this Tuesday or even tomorrow. However, the leaked AT&T memo proves that Apple *does* know there is something delaying the distribution of the white iPhone 4 and will be restricting access to 3rd parties to compensate. If there was a major problem to the point that they wouldn't be released at all on the promised date, they would make an announcement right then. I believe there will be white iPhone 4's at *Apple Stores* on the 24th.

    There are going to be a lot of tears shed from you people still holding on to hope that there will be one. It will be very entertaining to read all the threads on launch day :D

    Ok, point. Honestly I was reading another post about this at about the same time
    My opinion is doubtful as they are as of now still unavailable.

    "White iPhone currently unavailable for pre-order or in-store pickup"

    http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_iphone/family/iphone


    Btw I just realized that I think the sensor area is the grill mesh like the earpiece.
