White iPhone 4 now available through Apple

The infamous white iPhone 4 is now finally on sale. Almost an entire year after Apple originally announced the iPhone 4, which promised both a white and black model, the company has finally released it.

Due to production problems, the white iPhone 4 was delayed a number of times. One person managed to actually get the defective parts from Apple's manufacturing plant in China, selling them to consumers who couldn't wait. After the parts surfaced online, consumers quickly learned why Apple had delayed the white iPhone 4.

Light from the LED flash on the back of the phone started leaking through the phone, causing issues with pictures. Luckily for Apple, this was caught before the device hit the market.

Ten months later from its original launch in the United States, Apple finally dropped the white iPhone 4 to stores around the world.

You can pick up the white iPhone 4 at your local Apple store or online for the same price as the black.

Ha, a few days ago a Belgian retailer got 20 white ones early and by accident, they were all sold (thanks to the speed of Twitter) before Apple could ask them back

Man why can't apple sell their factory unlocked online... GRrrrrrrrrrrr
For obvious reasons, and it's worse in the UK

almost makes you wonder, what's the point right now... watch the iPhone 5 launch as white only and black delayed due to "production issues"....

I find it more interesting that the verizon iphone takes 3-5 business days to ship, when pretty much all verizon phones ship next day with overnight shipping, any reason for that?

Could it be that by the time the screenshot was taken the initial stock allocation has been exhausted? I wouldn't be surprised if both carriers have more stock of the black model than white.

Not sure if other carriers do this, but AT&T sells the 3GS at a much cheaper price. Even though this model is extremely late to the market, it will still be able to sell for another year and a half.

no it couldnt be because it has always said that for the iPhone, I never understood why there was a delay

when the green one coming? i'm thinking about switching carriers when my contract is up on 2012. unless i can get a sweet deal from Telus, but i doubt they would even give me more minutes

Took 'em long enough. Anyone who was that desperate for a White iPhone just bought the Black and used the multiple conversion kits out there.
