I guess this is good news for Apple die hards. From ABC News, Apple says the long-delayed white iPhone 4 will go on sale Thursday in the United States, United Kingdom and 26 other countries for $199 or $299 depending on the model.
Apple Inc. said Wednesday the prices are for phones purchased with a two-year contract from AT&T Inc. or Verizon Wireless in the U.S.
Hmmm. It looks kind of gay though. I would still prefer the black iPhone over the white one. What about you? Are you planning to get this elusive model and be the unique users boasting a white iPhone?
Apple has finally solved the manufacturing problem preventing the release of white iPhone 4s, a report says. Originally promised shortly after the availability of black models, Apple has had to delay the white phones several times.
The trouble, a Macotakara source says, is that earlier painting techniques produced large numbers of defective units, making them impractical for mass production. The answer has reportedly come from a painting material developed in Japan, said to make it easier to adjust the thickness of layers.
White iPhones have in fact begun popping up in a number of tracking systems, including ones in the US, the UK and Germany. Apple might therefore finally be on the verge of shipping, though exactly how soon is a matter of speculation. The company could attempt to time the launch sometime after the debut of the Verizon iPhone on February 10th.
And the bottomline is … do people really care what the problem is/was? As long as it is fixed, people definitely are looking forward to its release. As for problems encountered before and the solution done to it, nobody cares … right?
I heard about a white iPhone 4 before due to be out anytime and it seems it will be delayed yet again. Apple says white version of the iPhone 4 won’t be ready for sale until spring 2011. Guess that news left a lot of people looking forward to owning a white one disappointed.
For those keeping track, this is the third time you’ve read that headline since June. It comes just shortly after news broke this morning that Apple had released an updated version of its App Store iPhone app with the option to reserve a white iPhone 4 in stores.
But hmmm … a white iPhone? Not really attracted to it. I like the black one better. But of course, if anybody will give me a white one, I would gladly accept it with open hands ;).
