...the hardware is almost 12 months old.


And yet still it's the best phone out there.

There are many people that purchased iPads in the holidays, even though the successor was just months away. And I think a lot of people with iPhones skip a generation unless it is a radical change. I know many people with 3GS that skipped the 4, and I had a 3G and skipped the 3GS.

In any event, I doubt the target is black iPhone 4 owners. And I doubt those that really wanted an iPhone 4 10 months ago but in white waited. It is just for those who still might buy one now anyway, and now they have a choice.

nobody knows nothing about the iPhone 5 so stop acting like you do.


That's not true. I know nothing about the iPhone 5.

I'm an iPhone owner myself, but somehow I doubt that you're right.


Well, it's a pretty subjective opinion. Tech-spec-wise, iP4 has never been the best phone even when it was announced, but it's certainly the best iOS phone, and most people on these forums feel that iOS > all

Finally! ...

But 10 months later from the black iPhone 4? Really Apple? :/


Look at it this way: if you were Apple, would you rather:

a.) release a product that wasn't up to par and then have to deal with the massive backlash of "OMG Apple released a hosed product what losers who can't design a phone im goin DROID cuz APPL SUX LOL"; or
b.) do what they did and say publicly, "Ya know, we've found some crappiness within the manufacturing process that lets light bleed out from behind the white fa├žade of the device, and we don't want to release a product that isn't the best it can and should be, so we're going to take the time to get it right instead of rushing it to the shelves," like so many other companies do on a regular basis? *cough cough VISTA cough*

I for one commend them for taking the time to get it right.

For those who like to count, the release of the white iPhone 4 was 308 days late (after the black iPhone 4) in the U.S.
