    I've seen countless pictures of people showing off every color Bumper. Yet it seems like every Apple Store is only getting Black. WTF!

    That.. and when are they going to ship the next round of color bumpers? I ordered a blue one Tuesday morning after buying my iPhone 4 and it says "Ships by July 16th"

    Not really, considering they've been shipping a lot of stuff before the advertised "Ships by" date.. which is why I posed the question. Also, it was more of a hypothetical question than anything, since no one here can answer that.

    I called my store today (Jacksonville) and the guy said they are not going to carry the color bumpers in stock at the stores until later this month when they start selling the white iPhones.

    I waited to order a colored bumper because I was hoping to find something else before July 16th. Well, I decided to go ahead and order one today and the status changed to 'ships in 3 weeks'. My order receipt says to expect it on July 28th! Yikes! SO by stalling a few days because I didn't want to wait so long, I now have to wait almost 2 weeks longer than I would have. :(
    Good news is I ended up with an ifrogz luxe I picked up at best buy today (after returning the HORRIBLE Griffin Reveal) and I really like it!!!

    I called a SF Apple store and was told that the Blue and White bumpers should be arriving within days.

    You can have any color bumper you want, as long as it is black ;)
    reason why there are so many black bumpers, is because black paint dries quicker? That's my guess.
    I bought a black bumper at my store, and I admit, it looks really cool. I thought it would be meh. Hold me over till the green comes out.
