According to Bloomberg report Apple Inc. will start selling a white version of its iPhone 4 in the next few weeks, following a delay of 10 months, according to three people with knowledge of the plans.
Although it’s unclear as to whether Apple will hold a media event for the white iPhone’s launch, it appears that the device will be unveiled very soon…
“Apple Inc. will begin selling a white model of the iPhone 4 in the next few weeks after a 10- month delay, according to three people familiar with the plans.
The new version will be available from AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless by the end of April, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. The release was stalled as Apple resolved manufacturing challenges, including paint that peeled under heat, one person said.”
As Bloomberg points out in the report, Apple originally delayed the white iPhone 4 due to multiple production issues.
“After releasing the iPhone 4 in June, Apple announced the delay of a white version because of unspecified manufacturing trouble. Production was also delayed because of complications with a sensor used in the device, one of the people said.”
