Analyst says white iPhone 4 out next month
From vapour to solid reality at last?
The white iPhone 4 may finally lose its rocking-horse-poop rarity next month.
We won't believe it until we see it, but according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, of US investment house Concord Securities, the calls he's been putting in to Asian component suppliers and the like suggest the almost mythical handset is going into production.
That will allow Apple to ship the phone to shops and mobile operators in April, he said, AppleInsider reports.
Most recently, in December 2010, Apple said the vaporous offering would become solid reality in "Spring 2011", so of course Concord's man may be simply anticipating that outcome.
Incidentally, Apple is rumoured to be readying an early April announcement for iOS 5 and changes to its MobileMe online service. If the white iPhone 4 is out next month, what an "and there's one more thing..." it would make. ®
