Its not confusing... Rose Gold is massively more popular than the Apple production/offer, thus your wife waits.
With the initial surge of order they maybe believed they couldn't serve your order space gray early, but probably ordering for space grey turned out to be AS EXPECTED in the end and thus they can deliver to you on launch day.

How the frigg does this guy know this? Supply chain source data would not indicate how many Rose Gold iPhones have been ordered. The only way I can think of him knowing this info is by knowing the person/people in charge of shipping fulfillment at Foxconn.
I may not know how this stuff works but common sense tells me this. Am I missing something?
The "pinky" may be ahead based on preorders but once the supply chain catches up and the bulk of phone orders are filled its percentage of total sales will drop significantly. I guess this shows there was a pent up demand for pink iPhones. Hey, whatever it takes to keep the numbers up. For those who truly believe they're getting a "shiny penny copper" toned phone rather than a pink one that will blush at them as they unbox it - there's a huge variety of cases available to tone down the pink. Unless of course you want to celebrate pinkness and pump up the pink volume with a striking and highly complementary Hello Kitty case. Purr on pink iPhone lovers - it's all good.

and due to work, I'm out of town tonight through Sunday for work and won't get my spanking new pink phone until Sunday night;-(. In fact, I'm likely passing my iphone on the road as drives down to the local distribution center this afternoon.

Well, mine just arrived and in my house lighting, it looks to have a very copperish tinge. It's very nice. Not as pink as the Apple Watch Sport looked at the Apple Store. Need to see it in brighter light and sunlight but it looks very nice.
I've seen the rose gold Apple Watch Sport, which is pink, and been assured by Apple store employees that the rose gold iPhone will be identical in color and finish.
I have my Rose Gold phone right here and in the fluorescent lighting of my kitchen, it is more copperish than the Apple Watch Sport I saw. Need to see it in sunlight. Very nice. Very similar to the picture at the top of this thread in color with a light coppery sheen to it. Hard to describe.
