    Statement by Apple on White iPhone 4

    PR Newswire

    CUPERTINO, Calif., July 23

    CUPERTINO, Calif., July 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- White models of Apple's new iPhone® 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.

    Not really, I got mine with no problem.

    Of course if apple pushed them out with crappy coloring, you people would bitch about that. They are damned if the do, damned if they don't.

    That sucks for the people who held out and skipped the initial release of the black iPhone 4...and for the people who returned the black iPhone 4's in hopes that a white iPhone 4 release would be imminent. I hope it's still worth it.

    I'll believe it when there is a link to the apple pr post but until then. Nah.

    Anyone could just copy and paste a pr press release and change a couple of words.

    K I lose, aww man I want the white one. (edit)

    Meh, I don't think it looks that good in white anyway. I wonder if they have prototyped some other colours. Blue might look good.

    self imposed delay so they have something sell during a period of low activity.

    Are you kidding me?!?

    Agh... I could have had a black on launch day. I could have had a black two weeks later. I could have had a black a week ago... I waited because I thought this thing would become available... f&%@ this...

    That's just as credible as saying that they actually have a problem manufacturing the phone. We don't know why they're having delays exactly, so until we do, don't jump to conclusions.
