    Does the newly released GSM white iPhone 4 have the Qualcomm MDM6600 chip?

    If so, would that mean that if I bought a factory unlocked one (from the Apple Store in Canada, for example), could I bring it back to the USA and use it with Verizon?

    Highly doubt it.
    It probably has the same exact hardware as the black GSM iphone 4 just a different color.

    If the white iPhone is different in ANY way except for color, there would be a TON of angry iPhone 4 users.

    The white GSM iPhone 4 already does differ from the black GSM iPhone 4 in a known way other than color. According to this front page MacRumors article:

    A fix for the proximit issue I can see but not a whole different chip/device that will handle both CDMA and GSM tech.
    Maybe in the next iphone release.

    I'm eagerly looking forward to the teardown.

    Do any of you know, typically, how long after an Apple product goes on sale do teardown pics appear on the Internet?

    That's a redesign from the original white one, not from the black one. The black one has the same design feature as the NEW white one.
    That is, unless you've seen a black iPhone 4 with a grill over the proximity sensor.
