If you’ve been waiting patiently to get your hands on the white iPhone 4, you’re not alone. The delay of Cupertino’s white model have been a major disappointment for me personally, as I hoped to nab one way back at launch. That said, there is hope on the horizon.
Recently, we spotted a white iPhone 4 at a press event in New York City. The owner (who preferred to remain anonymous) noted if you take a walk around the Cupertino campus, you would be able to spot them all over the place. The reason for delay for the public is discoloration issues. That is, the body of the device and the home button aren’t matching correctly. A minor issue for some, for sure… but for Apple (Steve Jobs in particular), everything has to be perfect before it goes out the door.
Today, we stumbled across what looks to be a ‘lightly’ colored iPhone 4 from within the Apple Store App. Check out the screenshot below. YES, that IS a white iPhone 4 you see before you. To check it out for yourself, open the Apple Store App, navigate to the ‘stores’ area, and then try to make a product reservation for an iPhone. Both the black and white versions are listed. Interesting. Of course, if you try and reserve a white one, you’ll get an ‘item not available’ message, but still… could this be just one more sign that the white iPhone 4 is on its way real soon? I sure hope so.
