White iPhone 4 / Free Bumper Case: Release Update

The iPhone 4 has had a mixed reaction since its launch, what with the antenna issues and the white model that is missing in action. However, we now have a couple of updates for you regarding Apple’s other colored handset and the free bumper case issue.

According to Samantha Murphy, from TechNewsDaily it seems that the delay of the White iPhone 4 has been due to an issue with the glass touchscreen. It seems that the manufacturer is having a hard time getting the mix right, visit the link for more details. We recently reported that the White iPhone will be released at the end of July.

We still await news on the free bumper case for the iPhone 4. Looking on the Apple Store the price now reads $0.00 and that they are now stockpiling them ready for the big push to make them available to the 3 million customers who has purchased an Apple smartphone.

    Making steps to refund cases wont make up for the lack of function over form.

    It's a shame to see so many issues with the iPhone 4 after so many people waited for it's release. What's more of a shame is that it seems Apple knew about some of these issues already, such as the problem with reception.

    If a brand new company brought out a product and then told you needed to pay a further £25 to make it work properly, you wouldn't bother. But Apple have created such a loyal following that people may just put up with what issues there are for the sake of owning the latest Apple product. Personally, I'd be happier with an older iPhone – at least then the issues are all ironed out.

    However, it's also interesting to see how much excitement new technologies can bring. New technology and innovation is important for new business, illustrated by entrepreneurship grants and new business competitions like http://www.ukesnc.com.

    Guess it's not all bad!
