Like the Ford Model-T, the Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone is available in any color as long as it is black. That will be true until spring of next year, so people who want a white iPhone 4 will not get one for Christmas.
“We’re sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone yet again, but we’ve decided to delay its release until this Spring,” an Apple spokesperson reportedly said according to Apple Insider.
Analysts speculate that it is mechanically harder to make a white version of the phone, but Apple is one of the most technologically advanced companies in the world.
