Apple has confirmed the white iPhone 4 for this Spring, Foxconn already making it
This adds to the Bloomberg snippet the other day that a white iPhone 4 will appear on both AT&T and Verizon by the end of this month. Reuters also cites "two people familiar with the situation" that Hon Hai Precision, which is the manufacturing arm of Foxconn, has already started production of the initial batches.
Now that we have every reason to believe the elusive white iPhone 4 will finally see the light of day ten months later than promised, what are your thoughts? Are you still interested, or would you rather wait for the next iPhone version, the production of which is reportedly starting in September?

Its pretty much expected that it was going to be "late". Could be a hit for apple though given how far behind the current iPhone specs are from the high-end market standard.

I kind of took this as when the iPhone 5 finally does release, you'll get a cheaper iPhone 4 in two different colors...but who knows...

Sweet! Just in time for the iPhone 4 birthday. Now I can buy a white iPhone 4 that's completely the same as the current iPhone 4 just in white, meanwhile all other phones on the market keep advancing. Gotta love Apple.

Yea no kidding im sorry but who cares at this point? They want to see the phone 5 not an ugly white iphone. If you want a white phone so bad just get a plain white sticker and put it over the device.

Didn't the people at Apple even say this generation of the iPad and iPhone are not going to be anything special? I'm waiting for the next Gen stuff they said that shit is going to be CASH!!

Well out you go islaves,pour all your cash out on a inherently defective device still at a high premium price but being last years model but in a different colour, Just remember you look realy 'cool' with it and and will be the envy of all your friends and most of all Apple will love you again. Your phone is white,incredible

First OS wars, then carrier wars, now there will be color wars! I can see it now, "my white iPhone is better than your black iPhone" ..."what'd you say homie?" ..."you heard me dog!"
Black vs White... Here we go again!
Spy vs Spy HAHA!

The way I see it, this is a way for Apple to keep milking sales of the iphone 4, especially if the 5 isn't coming for another half year. The mere mention of a new color keeps them in the news and therefore in customers' minds.
That said, I think anyone who's planning to trade in their black 4 for a white one is off their rocker.

the WSJ reports iPhone 4 in white?! come on, I don't listen to anything said about apple products untill Steve is saying it on stage.
18. roldefol (Posts: 3362; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Yeah, remember back in December when the WSJ reported the Verizon iPhone was coming in Feb? What a joke!

Originally in June of 2010 I had a pre-order for a white iPhone 4...I was upset when I couldn't get one. I ended up with a black iPhone 4, but now I'm so fed up with Apple I've switched to the Atrix. I like the phone...except theres not "4g" enabled....wtf. But its better than the iPhone. I'm waiting to see what the iPhone 5 is going to be. Apple is going to have to step it up....bc Android's are taking over. But Apple still seems to sell a TON of phones even though they are behind ....

they should really incorporate a full slide-out keyboard while keeping the phone just as thin instead of releasing iphones that pretty much do the same thing.
although i'm biased towards the white iphone and would probably get one (currently have a white 3gs), i would reallly love for the i5 to have a keyboard but apparently it's going to be a plain bar as usual and with a metal back??? that's like going back to the 1st gen iphone.
