In case you've missed all the recent signs, the white iPhone 4 is finally being launched this week. All signs point to April 27th as the launch day. European carriers point to the 27th, Best Buy does too, and Apple has started shipping units to Apple Stores this week. In fact, Vodafone UK even sold one prematurely to a customer. Meanwhile, we've heard rumblings from both Best Buy and Apple Retail sources of the same.

With all rumor-eyes looking toward the next generation iPhone 5, it's not clear how much demand there is for the white iPhone 4 which is now 10 months late from the original launch. So, here's a poll to see who is planning on buying a white iPhone 4.

A disgrace on so many levels.
Reason it isn't a disgrace: The white enclosure apparently was causing trouble with the camera due to light leakage. You would most likely be calling that disgraceful if they had indeed released a 500$ phone with that rather huge flaw, so I guess they can't win.

What ya'll are forgetting is that people buy iPhones every day... all year long.

If Apple sold 18.65 million iPhones this past quarter... that works out to over 207,000 a day. Let that number sink in for a minute. :D

So, when the white iPhone appears on store shelves this week... there will be a fair amount of people who buy them.

Don't forget... on each day there are millions of people who are eligible to get a new phone... and the white iPhone is yet another option for them.

Definitely waiting for the iPhone 5. Even if the form factor doesn't change much I'm sure the faster guts will be worth the wait.

White does look good though.
