First the white iPhone was supposed to ship on June 24th, just like the black one. Then it was delayed until late July now. And now Apple says they’ll be available at some unspecified date later this year–they’ve “continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected.”

I don’t explain Apple to explain exactly why white iPhones are harder to make than black ones, but it presumably has something to do with the fact that the phones have unique glass cases. And I’m wondering: How many people who want an iPhone 4 have delayed their purchases until the white version shows up?

    I was considering waiting till a white one came out – if it was coming out soon. But at this rate, it's looking like end-of-year at best, at which point you might as well just wait an extra 6 months and get the 4G when it comes out next year.

    Now THIS is a place where a poll would have been useful. Is anyone still holding out for the white one?
