Reports: White iPhone 4s Are Finally Coming

This is something many folks have been anxiously waiting to hear, because having an alternative to black is a big deal to some.

Bloomberg News says that:

"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."

It adds that "the new model 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."

Its twin is coming.

Problems with the paint have reportedly been solved.

Reuters is on the story as well, saying that "suppliers to Apple Inc have begun production of white iPhones after a delay of almost 10 months, pointing to a launch date of within a month, two people familiar with the situation said on Thursday."

Of course, now the hype machine will just turn to the iPhone 5, which reports say may not be out until September.
