White iPhone 4 Release Rumors For 27th February?

It was just yesterday that we reported on the elusive white iPhone 4, and we asked with the iPhone 5 homing into view in the not to distant future, had Apple left it too late to bring us the device that we had almost lost hope in seeing?

As Debbie here at OSM mentioned, if the white 4 hadn’t reached us by February then it might as well not come at all. Well not even 24 hours has passed and we have fresh evidence from Appleinsider that suggests a release date of February 27th for the mythical handset. It seems via MacRumors, that a photo on Best Buy’s stock listings includes information that has been spotted showing the 16GB and 32GB versions of the white model, with the above date.

Consisting of an SKU number for the 16GB of 1049236 and model number BBM42LD, whilst the bigger 32GB version contains an SKU 1049245 and model number BBM43LD, of course begs the question of a February release. Since its initial delay last year, we have heard various launch dates which unfortunately have never come to fruition, so why are we too believe this subsequent date?

At this stage due to just rumor, it looks like we will have to wait for an official release date? Judging by previous launches, this date will fall on a Sunday, uncharacteristic for the tech giants Apple.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you still think that the white iPhone 4 stands a chance after such a long wait? And it gets us asking the question, after this amount of time kicking our heels for the white 4, will we be expected to wait this long again for a white iPhone 5?
