The white iPhone 4 is released (in some stores).
The white iPhone 4 is really real. Two reports from Europe appeared about customers who obtained a white iPhone 4 ahead of the official Apple announcement expected today or tomorrow.
MacRumors reports about a lucky guy who bought a white iPhone 4 in Belgium. Italian site iSpazio reports about another white iPhone 4 sold in an Italian carrier store early. If you hoped the white iPhone 4 would be any different to the currently available model than you will be disappointed. The only difference is really just the white color. The strange history of the white iPhone 4 is finally coming to an end. Below you can review what happened so far. It is a long story of delays and wrong promises.
In a way the delay of the white iPhone 4 is now coming in pretty handy for Apple. The new color is going to hold them over until September when they release the new iPhone 5.
