White iPhone 4 / 5 Release: Matter of Weeks Anticipation Building

For some the wait for the white iPhone 4 to show itself was just too much to bear. No doubt for many of you, the decision was made to look at other smartphone alternatives, but this cannot be said for other perhaps avid Apple fans.

The pale looking edition to the black iPhone 4 has been plagued right from the beginning. If its not been missed release dates and deadlines such as February, March, July and so on, then its been speculation as to why the handset is taking so long. Indications last year were pointing to a problem with color matching the white home button and faceplate followed up by Apple saying that delays were purely down to production problems.

We had reports from Tim here at OSM about white devices showing up in China which were selling in the region of between $800 and $1,200. This then begged the question of whether the handsets were authentic? With the rumor mill in full swing and an iPhone 5 on the horizon, we decided to ask whether firstly Apple would bring out a 5 in white, and whether it would be worth spending your hard earned pennies on a white 4 or next generation 5?

Today if news is anything to go by, then this question may become more of a reality. As Chris Davies over at Slashgear reported via a report from Economic Daily News, a white iPhone 5 will include a touch panel supplied exclusively from Chinese electronic components company Wintek. Although the company have failed to comment on this, if this turns out to be true, then the iPhone 4 will launch within a matter of weeks before the iPhone 5 in the month of June?

Although no concrete launch date has been announced, on the 21st January we gave you interesting details from ITProportal. On looking back at Apple’s past history with events and dates, they came to the conclusion that 6 June 2011 was looking to be a likely date. To look at how they got to this click here.

As Dialtosave.co.uk reported, the iPhone 5 is expected to pack a 4-inch display, no home button, NFC integration, front facing camera, photobooth and so on.

What do you make of today’s news? Are you still desperate to get your hands on a white iPhone 4 or will you wait to see what happens with the 5?
