White iPhone 4 delayed until Spring 2011

The ever elusive White iPhone is still in hiding, with Apple announcing earlier today that the iPhone would not be available until Spring 2011. This isn't the first delay, either. Apple announced back in July that the iPhone would be delayed until "later this year."

The original, black version of the iPhone was made available in June of this year, and Apple is hesitant to reveal any further details, except saying to Reuters; "We're sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone again."

When Reuters prompted Trudy Miller, a spokeswomen for Apple for further comment on why the delays are ongoing, she refused to comment.

Apple has had issues from square one with the new iPhone 4 devices, with the phone being "accidentally" left in a bar before the release, then the antennagate issues which plagued the devices, as well as many phones suffering from screen cracks. Despite the issues, the iPhone 4 has been a hit with Apple making record Q4 sales, with 14.1 million devices being shipped this quarter.

@este - Steve has been very critical on the how white the white is. I guess several models were not white enough. Why not do it like the other iPhone? Just make the back white.

White is girly on a phone anyway. I love masculaine dark colors like black.

Oh my poor wife... she's been patiently waiting for this stupid white iphone since day one... I won't be able to give her the news... i think she'd go apesh**...

lol

Wow! Spring 2011 is a whole year away! Unless you mean northern hemisphere spring? Then that's only 6 months away. I wish websites/companies would be more worldwide inclusive with their audience/customers... maybe saying Q2 instead. *sigh*

At least the Zune HD had multiple colours AND customizable artist designs on the back thru Zune Originals...

It also has, almost, non-existent marketshare. I think Apple would rather have this problem.

Shame it wasn't released on a worldwide scale properly though...

Small compared to the iPod. Quite reasonable compared to any other player out there.

I thought it was unicorn horns?

Common misconception. The unicorn horns are for the bumpers. Powdered dolphin bones (aged 24 years) are used on the white iPhone, instead.
