    The UK Apple Store (http://store.apple.com/uk) has been updated to offer the iPhone 4. However only the black one is available for pre-order as the site states:

    White iPhone currently unavailable for pre-order.



    On a positive note the iPhones on offer are now unlocked - they can be used with a Micro SIM from any 3G/GSM carrier.



    Oh and it seems Apple has just released the new Mac Mini too, it looks even slimmer than its predecessor.

    Apple Store Open - Punch Line Is White Unavailable For Pre-Order Nor In-Store Pickup. So if you want a White iPhone 4, we have to sit on the sideline while all the Black iPhone orders go first.

    Same size as AppleTV. Costs $200 more than previous entry Mac Mini.

    Hey I'm a guy - an old guy in fact - and I want white too.

    Right. Why get another black face when you can get a change of scenery that also shouts "I'm an iPhone 4"?

    I'm hoping each Apple Store will get a few hundred white ones for those who are willing to endure a long queue at each store. If so, I'll be going to my store next Tuesday to start or be near the start of its queue.

    I am sure they are holding the white ones just to piss people off. It is really unlikely they ran into a manufacturing problem or a parts supply issue or anything like that.

    I wouldn't hold your breath. Not allowing white pre-orders but having them in store seems incredibly unlikely. I am sure if the white phones are ready to be in stores by the 24th, there will be a pre-order for them.

    Gonna hold out for the white myself. Apple knows the majority of people are going to buy the black model so they have to focus on supplying enough units in the color most people want. Completely reasonable I think.

    Im getting it in white, i don't care when it comes out. Unlike the lemming fan-boys/girls out there, i prefer to be different. I have the white 3G model, got it BECAUSE it was white and it'd be easier to spot. I'm glad the front face is white now, since when on it's back, the 3G didn't show the nice glossy white sheen as clearly. the white also doesn't show any dirt or fingerprints. after 2 years of use, it still looks new.



    my guess on the shortage of white is because they knew 90% of pre-orders would be for the black phone anyway, and to concentrate all production on the black.

    Its actually a smart move - limit the availability of models means you limit the number of people buying Day 1, which is better for supply. Those who want to wait make the conscious to do so, while those who actively want it should be able to with minimal delay.



    And for the record, I think the white one is worth the wait

    Let's try to get Apple's attention about this issue. I've emailed this letter to Steve Jobs and a few others at Apple. Give it a read and share it on your social networks (twitter, facebook, myspace, etc). Maybe if it gets spread around enough, Apple will respond.
