Apple Talks about White iPhone 4 Delay, Says Nothing

Good luck trying to get your hands on a white iPhone 4 this summer, because there just aren't any to be found. And according to Apple, you're going to have to hang tight for awhile, because daggone it, getting the color right is proving to be more difficult than the company could have ever anticipated. Seriously. Either that, or maybe Apple was afraid you'd hold it wrong and cast a shadow on the device, thereby changing its appearance.

"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," Apple said in a statement. "The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected."

And that's all Apple had to say on the matter. No explanation as to why exactly the white iPhone 4 is so "challenging" to manufacturer or why this tricky design phase isn't affecting the black models. Just two, woefully uninformative sentences that, when translated, says "go pound sand."

Of course, you could always pick up a black model and paint the device yourself, or, I don't know, get a phone that works? Just a suggestion.

Haha nice one Paul. "...get a phone that works?".

But who cares, why does Apple like white so much? It's a little boring just seeing all white or all black devices all the time.

I liked that cell phone that came out a few years back that had an all bamboo casing, and it looked pretty sweet. Not to mention it was somewhat "enviromentally" friendly thanks to it's biodegradeable case, can't say the same for it's internal components though.

I'm gonna bet that they are delaying it to fix the antenna problem once and for all.

That's my guess kyouya.

They have some many other products that are white.... how could they possibly be having an issue changing a case color from black to white?

It's obvious that more is going on than they are saying.

If the guess is that they are delaying it for antenna issue, that would mean they only wanted to push out he black iPhone 4 to keep everyone busy knowing the issue :D. Sadly that didn't work out so well :P.

I don't see how making a white casing is hard... Its like a sheet of paper topped with that glass screen... :D

I know. Though to some surprise, White seems to be the most popular iPhone color; in the days of the iPhone 3G and 3GS, I could barely see any Black iPhones for sale, just losts of White iPhones.

I don't know what makes the white iPhone so special anyway :P.

Wouldn't that mean the Black iphone was really popular? lol Seeing as how they were always sold out.

I've never seen a white iphone in the real world lol Always black.

I prefer black over white for my electronics any day.

Me too. Black is so much better then White, that's why Apple decided to ditch it in all of their product lines :P.

Black is shinier, and more mysterious and for me is usually associated with luxury.

If ever I own a BMW. It WILL be black :-)
