So what if people want to buy the phone!!! Some people are taking this to serious. It's a good looking phone end of story. The iPhone 4 is still the current generation and nobody knows nothing about the iPhone 5 so stop acting like you do.

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.
