Vodafone salesperson accidentally sells a white iPhone 4 model to a customer

Vodafone salesperson accidentally sells a white iPhone 4 model to a customer
Literally coming down to the wire, especially considering the numerous delays and promises we’ve heard about the white iPhone 4, it seems like we’re finally nearing the inevitable. In just the last couple weeks alone, we’ve been hearing a ton of rumors about the white iPhone 4’s expected launch, but now we’re finding one surprising news that cements its validity.

Apparently, it was found that Vodafone recently began receiving shipments of the mythical device in the UK, but as fate would have it, an employee accidentally rang it up for sale as a black iPhone 4 to one lucky customer. Photos of the device and its retail packaging were soon snapped – thus giving us more hope that it’s official launch is going to be soon at hand. Seeing that everything in their inventory is monitored to the teeth, Vodafone quickly realized the mistake and sent out notices informing that shipments of it were being stopped until next week.

At this point, it’s looking very likely that consumers all around will soon have the fine opportunity to pick up this pristine looking iPhone 4. Granted that we’ve been waiting almost close to the year, it’s still nonetheless better late than never – and considering the speculations that the next generation iPhone will be delayed from its usual summer roll out, this model can seemingly tide some people over.

I just don't understand why people would wait almost a year after the phone original launch in black, just to pick up a white one. Or those of you who will be trading up to the white iPhone. and Even more is why did it take so long to come out with the same darn thing just in different colored plastic?

it's plastic covered with glass. For the person that got it. . . . Ebay it for 3x the price. You know some idiot will pay at least that for it!

the UI isnt 6 years old, it's about to turn 5 years old, and oh wait, it's the same UI that Samsung is copying shamelessly for their Galaxy family so they can be successful eventually

except you can customize the Samsung Touchwiz UI. . . or even replace it with a different launcher all together.

If you include the development time, the iPhail's UI is well over 6 years old. And its about time Apple changet it too. Boring much??

21. kach22 unregistered

is it samsung that is copying Iphone's stupid UI or is it Apple who is making a success built on samsung's supply of hardware?

I dunno. I do agree with you but the gay community and metrosexuals flashing their effeminate men, girly style...there may be some "men" that'll get it. Lots of "fabulous" folks out there. Ugh! Don't believe me? Google search "men then men now" and go to images. Thats what the world is coming to.

I really just dont understand all the hype for a white iPhone. It's white. Big deal. It's still the same phone as the original black iPhone4, nothing glamorous or any improvements except the color.

The white makes it look cheap like it's one the of the fake iphones or a childs play toy

well, let's hope that the Vodaphone employee is still alive and not being tortured by Jobs.

The black looks more elegant than white as the silver band compliments the black more than the white.
