    I donn't know how many people remember stephen fry showing off his white iphone before at a conference and then said "oops cant show you that..". Well on his program on the BP oil spill tonight he was at a cleaning yard and wanted to convert feet to miles and said "i've got an app for that" and pulled out his white iphone!. Its a well known fact that he's very close to steve jobs so must have contacts

    Was it a real white iPhone or an after market one?

    Oh, but Stephen Fry is a wonderful reader, so as long as he continues reading audiobooks, I'm fine with him having a white iPhone.

    A real one I believe as he had it soon after launch day, I doubt there were many (if any) aftermarket white case mods out there at that time.

    EDIT: That and there's a youtube video of some guy in Canada who somehow managed to get one too. Unless he made the courier-marked cardboard box himself and white iPhone packaging too, its possible that some people were lucky.

    I'd be jealous but I don't like the front of the white iPhone that much to be honest.

    Yes, when your friends with Steve Jobs, he will personally give you an iPhone 4.

    Why did Steve Jobs meet with Russian President Medvedev? To give him an iPhone 4, of course!

    He was posing on the cover of some UK magazine recently holding said iphone. Can't remember which one, otherwise would post a link to it.

    Stephen Fry is famous for using GrindrX do you thing he met Mr Jobs on there and negotiated a white iPhone in the package or passage

    Yes, it's a Gay magazine - the cover doesn't have anything on it other than Stephen and the iPhone though:

    I wish they would release the white iphone randomly to see who gets the "lucky" iphone.

    Just like Willy Wonka, and the 5 people that find one will get a tour of Steve Jobs's mysterious fun house, I mean campus, and the one that can survive the entire trip will get to own Apple when Steve retires. Just don't disrupt any umpa lumpas, i mean Apple employees along your trip, and if Steve wants to stop in the middle of the tour to break out into a song, let him.

    oh my god that would be so much fun.

    The chrome apple in that pic is too "fat". Set your phone up to match that angle.

    No, he's close to Jonny Ive first and foremost. They've been friends for years, although he obviously has met Jobs and Jobs does recognise that he's one of Apple's biggest "customers".
