White iPhone 4 release by “end of April”

White iPhone 4

The long anticipated White iPhone 4 will finally be available by the end of April, according to a report from BusinessWeek. The phone will be sold at both AT&T and Verizon stores, with presumably the only difference being the devices color. If the white iPhone 4 does appear in the coming weeks, this will meet the “spring 2011″ timeline that Apple announced last fall.

Apparently the white phones extended delay was due to manufacturing challenges, including an issue where the paint would peel under heat. BusinessWeek seems confident of the timeline, citing three individuals who are privy to the release date.

Now the question remains if anyone still cares about the white iPhone 4 model, as talk and hype has moved onto the theoretical iPhone 5 which may or may not come this year. If the white iPad 2 is any indicator of interest, the white iPhone 4 will certainly be popular, despite the rumormill churning out iPhone 5 theories.

    Why would you buy any color iPhone now with the next version maybe 2-3 months out? Yes I know, smart ass, no one knows for sure when the new version will be released but I suspect many at this point will wait this version out.
