White iPhone Released

After months of waiting, the white iPhone 4 has finally arrived. While this seems like good news, let me assure you it is not.

The timing is horrible and makes me question the motives of Apple. Once again, I am forced to put on my consumer activist hat. Please follow me on this journey:

Question: "Thomas, currently, I do not have a contract with any cell phone carrier, should I get the white iPhone? I do love the color white and not many people have it..."

Answer: "No. Apple has conveniently released the white iPhone 4 a couple of months before they will announce the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 will be worth the wait, so if you buy the white iPhone 4, you will be kicking yourself by this coming September. If my prediction about Apple's horrible timing is correct, the iPhone 5 announcement will happen just as the exchange period on the white iPhone 4 expires."

The only people that should buy a white iPhone 4 are people that really love the color white AND have hundreds of dollars "lying around".
