It used to be that white defined Apple. Their MacBooks were a very attractive glossy white and the old click wheel iPods. You could spot an Apple product from a mile away. Lately, it seems that everything is going towards brush aluminum. The original iPhone, which I still think is the best looking of all the versions, the iPad, MacBooks… they are sporting the hot aluminum finishes now. I am glad, I absolutely love the casing of the MacBook Pro I bought last weekend.
So, why is everyone so excited to get a white iPhone 4? I’m not.
According to Reuters, Apple won’t be selling this white iPhone until Spring 2011.
“We’re sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone again,” Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller. She declined to explain the delay.

So, if you are excited about getting a white iPhone 4, you are going to have to wait until Spring to get one, unless you visit/trust Craigslist or eBay. The announcement today should make those sellers happy. I am seeing a min buyout of around $1k already.
