Not sure if this means anything, but on the Apple store in the US is specifically states: "White iPhone currently unavailable for pre-order or in-store pickup" Whereas the UK store doesn't say anything about not being unavailable for pick-up. It states: "White iPhone currently unavailable for pre-order." Does this just mean the pre-order and collection from store, or the actual walk in release on the 24th? Maybe this is a sorry from Apple and they're sending all white phones this way after the cock up over the iPad and making us wait for that? Interested to hear what you think?
