If this isn’t the final nail in the white iPhone’s coffin, I’m not exactly sure what would qualify as the last death knell. Apple has white-washed their website, and removed mentions of the white iPhone 4 from their phone pages. It’s gone, and it’s almost like it never existed in the first place.
Clearly the White iPhone 4 was taken out back in the middle of the night, stuffed in the trunk of an old Cadillac Deville, and put out of its misery. For the time being anyway.
Yesterday the iPhone purchase page listed both the white and black iPhones, as well as the expected shipping times. Everyone knew the phone would be delayed again, but why Apple decided to take the phone off the store in the first place is still a bit of a mystery.
It hasn’t been a complete whitewash. The white iPhone still makes appearances on the bumper page, and in the iPhone 4 image gallery.
It might be the case that Apple’s trying to avoid another publicity battle over failed promises, or it could also be that the iPhone 4 is now discontinued indefinitely, or at the very least, until the next iPhone version is announced.
We’re going to reserve judgement for a while. It’s not clear enough to make a call just yet, but at this point, who’s actually still waiting for the white iPhone?
