White iPhone 4 conversion kit seller gets legal threat after $130k sales

Apple's official white iPhone 4 is still MIA, which has left room for aftermarket replacement casing companies to step in; now, it seems, Apple - or investigators potentially connected with them - is unleashing its legal team to pick them off. According to The New York Observer, 17-year-old high-school senior Fei Lam had sold more than $130,000 worth of white iPhone 4 parts that he apparently sourced directly from Foxconn, when a threatening email from an anti-counterfeit/trademark firm accused him of selling stolen goods.

White iPhone 4 Removed From Apple Website

White iPhone 4 Removed From Apple Website

The white iPhone 4 is a sneaky device. Apple, having shown it off at the beginning of the year and making a countless number of people excited for its release, has repeatedly delayed the iDevice since its announcement. And, with this latest delay under the company's wings, there's speculation that the device not be making it to the market at all. Ever. Of course, there's plenty of reasons why: manufacturers can't get the shades of white to match. Or, the white color causes crazy things to happen when taking a picture.

Why the White iPhone 4 is Delayed (the real reason)

It's leaky! What a strange thing, I'd never have guessed. Sources talking to Cult of Mac tell of a problem with the camera on the phone.

Yuck! Don't want none of that business, right?

White iPhone 4 reservations hit updated Apple Store app

Apple has updated its Apple Store app for iOS, with v1.1 now available through iTunes, and it seems to have brought with it suggestions that the white iPhone 4 release is finally imminent.  MacRumors forum member Bandolier spotted that reservation options for the white iPhone 16GB and 32GB models have been added to the updated app, alongside their black counterparts.

Unfortunately, actually tapping the reservation options doesn't yet allow you to reserve a white iPhone 4.  Instead, you get a message saying "Because of high demand, we are not currently taking iPhone reservations."

White Verizon iPhone 4 Image Leaked?

Possibly, possibly not. The image you're about to set your eyes upon was leaked to Ahmed Omar of Covering Web today. In the image you'll see several things: first of all, it appears to be a white iPhone 4. No surprise. Then, it appears to show an improved iPhone 4 antenna design fixing the "Antennagate" problem. This is almost certainly going to be a feature whether this phone is real or not. Next, there's a lack of of a SIM card slot looking right at us (Verizon doesn't use SIM cards.) Then, what's that? Oh yes, there's a Verizon brand marking in the upper left hand corner of the screen.

When Steve Jobs stood on stage earlier in the year and officially unveiled the new iPhone 4, no one expected that the white variation of the device would become a rarity in the world, with the Cupertino-based company announcing that the white version of the iPhone wouldn't be shipping with the black model. And still, there are people out there waiting to get their hands on the "other" iPhone 4, but Apple has remained quiet on the status of the release.

iPhone 4 in White Launching at the End of July

When the iPhone 4 was announced, there were two version: the black model, and the white one. Of course, right at the start people had already made up their minds about which handset they'd be getting their hands on. For many, the white model was the one to own. But, what Apple forgot to mention (or perhaps it hadn't been known at the time), was that the white version wasn't actually going to be available at the time of launch. So, people had to wait -- not that that made sales suffer, or anything, considering that Steve Jobs today announced the iPhone 4 has launched more than 3 million handsets in just three weeks. And that's counting the (only) 1.7 percent of devices returned.
