A claim that the white Apple iPhone 4 will be out by the end of the month have been corroborated - sort of - by presumably different moles who say the handset has now gone into production. The sources told Reuters that Taiwan's Foxconn - Apple's customary iPhone manufacturing partner - has the gig. The phones will actually be …
Wow, I'm excited. Excited and amazed.
This shows the clear technological innovation of Apple, and their clear and unassailable lead over not just the smartphone industry, but humanity in general.
I mean, making a phone in TWO different colours? Just wow.
Also available in black
What are you having a go at Apple for? They're just making a phone.
It's the media that decides availability of a new colour is worth getting excited about, and readers who decide it's worth reading about.
And in such a small space of time as well. This is truly phenomenal innovation!
I aint having a go at Apple, I'm having a go at the hype as you suggest.
For the record; Apple have every right (and indeed probably the duty) to sell their gizmos in any way that they can. At this they are extremely successful. My beef is with fanboys and fawning media coverage* of every tiny little incremental development.

not a shit was given.
an old white one.
Iphone 4W, where W really means 'G'?
If they've made any changes beyond replacing the coal dust with titanium dust, then it's an Iphone 4 G. I hope that they have...
As a connoisseur of fine antennas, I'm not buying one if they leave the Hi-Z ends exposed again. I'm just not. Ain't happening. Ever. I don't reward stupid.
You might scoff
I was thinking of getting a new phone to replace my aging iphone 3G, and the idea of a white iphone 4 tickles me some what.
On the other hand, I'll still probably wait until after WWDC, just in case they announce an iphone 5.
Mine's the flame retardant coat.
I NEED ONE!
Oh wait, I have like 14 months left on my HTC Desire contract. Never mind.
