Wondering what’s up with that highly-desired white iPhone 4? Well, look what the site PocketLint found while attending a press event somewhere in New York; none other than the white iPhone 4 being used by a “mysterious man.” It appears to be the real thing, not your customized black iPhone 4 or a copycat imported from China.
As if taking some covert shots was not enough, the folks at PocketLint managed to approach the owner of the elusive white iPhone 4 and ask him why he has it. It turns out the man has a friend who works at One Infinite Loop (which happens to be Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, of course). That friend gave the man the white iPhone 4 and even said that piles of them were stocked up at Apple’s headquarters.
Now, here’s the juicy part; the man also said the reason why Apple has not released the white iPhone 4 is because of one minor issue—a mis-match of the white home button and the white face plate of the iPhone 4. It seems the supplier of the white home screen button is failing to meet Apple’s requirements. Hence, the white iPhone 4 remains an elusive dream for all of us.
So, there you go. Hopefully, Apple sorts this problem out and finally gives us the white iPhone 4. It would make a great White Christmas gift that every iPhone fan would love to receive.
