White iPhone 4 might Land in Stores End of April
Apple said earlier this year that the white iPhone 4 was delayed until this spring due to manufacturing problems, but never specified the issue. One source tells Bloomberg that one problem was the white paint peeling under heat.
The different color option could provide a possible alternative to buyers eagerly awaiting the fifth-generation iPhone, which may not be released this summer. Sources told Apple blogger Jim Dalrymple that an iPhone 5 would not be introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, even though iPhone upgrades have traditionally been launched at this annual event.
