The white iPhone is coming. Really

The white iPhone is coming. Really

This time we actually mean it. The most talked-about phone the world has never seen looks like it's finally about to make its long-overdue appearance. Yes, it's the iPhone – in white.

And this time we're not talking about half-baked rumours like a shadowy listing on Vodafone Germany or Best Buy's internal inventory system. We're talking about full-blown product pages on our own Orange and Three networks here in the UK.

But wait. Much as we'd love to get carried away with the fact that soon we'll all be jabbering away on our white iPhones just like it was 2008 again, we're not quite prepared to call this one a done deal just yet.

Both Orange and 3 may proudly be showing the white iPhone – in both 16GB and 32GB flavours – on their iPhone 4 configuration pages, but in both cases that's exactly as far as you can go.

Select the White option, then either capacity, and in both cases you're simply told that the white iPhone 4 isn't in stock. Orange at least gives you the option to leave your details so you can be emailed when the situation changes, but neither network seems to have the faintest idea as to when that is.

So do our UK network chums have information we don't, or are they hoping – like us – that if you wish really, really hard... ?

Three have had the white version on their website for a few months now, but as you rightly point out, as soon as you select it you get a message telling you it's not currently available. I think by the time they have this in production it'll be obsolete.

Orange also had the white pages in the config since the iphone was released to be honest. They are just lazy to remove it from there really, I know as I work for them!

Apparently the white iPhone is imminent, however I would say weve passed the 6 months since the last iPhone so its worth waiting for the new one before signing that 24 month contract....

Crikey who have you got editing these pages, I hope you don't pay them, the white iPhone has been shown on the Orange and 3 websites since, well forever. Catch up people.

mswallis - that's clearly mentioned in the article, perhaps you could read it before criticising?
