Apple delays white iPhone. Again.

John Moe Jul 23, 2010

First it was supposed to be ready for the June launch. Launch comes, no white iPhone. Then it was going to ship in July. Well, July’s here. No white iPhone. Now Apple is saying the white iPhone is delayed until late this year, no specific date given. They say manufacturing it has been “more challenging” than expected.

So let’s recap: Apple can make a revolutionary product that redefines personal technology and contains more computing power IN YOUR HAND than NASA had for the Apollo mission to the moon but they can’t handle the color white. Got it.
