White iPhone 4 In The Wild: Not A Windows Phone 7

For some time now, there has been speculation as to when you can expect to see the white iPhone 4. We have reported over the last few months of “so-called” arrival dates, the latest being Christmas. Will it be ready in time for the holiday season, and more importantly, before the release of the iPhone 5 due to be released early next year?

But now, according to Darren at Techwatch, a white version has now been spotted in the hands of celebrity writer and actor “Stephen Fry” at the T3 Gadget Awards 2010. Yes, a real live working white iPhone 4! At the recent awards ceremony Fry attended, he talked about the Windows Phone 7 launch. Upon reaching into his pocket to pull out the Microsoft handset that he had acquired, he grabbed the white iPhone 4 instead.

To a jaw dropping audience, and an awkward moment of silence, Fry in his usual comical manner, goaded the surprised crowd of onlookers, knowing full well that the white iPhone 4 was probably the only handset in the whole of Europe.

During the events ceremony, we do know that “Phone of the Year” went to HTC Desire and the iPhone 4 despite all of its past issues picked up “Commuter Gadget of the Year” award.

So what do we make of all of this? Does this mean that the white version is on its way in time for the holiday season? Tell us what you think and if you have been waiting for this handset? To read more on this log onto Techwatch
