White Apple iPhone 4 to be in stock by 27.Feb.2011

Like if this guide is helpful
Sneaky snaps of a Best Buy computer screen are the best evidence yet that Apple will finally roll out the white iphone in a matter of weeks.

Hot on the heels of yesterday's revelation that Vodafone Germany's inventory system was listing the iPhone for girls, the latest leak even shows an 'in stock' date of February 27th 2011.

Unfortunately for the three people who have been holding out for so long for the much-delayed handset, this isn't the first time Best Buy has added the fruit-based phone for the ladies to its stock system, and then yanked the listing at the last minute.

The stack-'em-high-sell 'em-cheap US retail giant took pre-orders for the white iphone during the run-up to the original  launch back in June 2010 using the same identification (SKU) numbers, but withdrew the listing when Apple hit the stop button on the production line.

The Cupertino company has never explained the delay, referring only to 'manufacturing difficulties' but, of all the rumours coming out of the Far East, we reckon the most believable is that component suppliers have been unable to make the iPhone 4's glass back cover and screen bezel opaque enough to stop light leaking into the handset's two cameras.

If a February 27th launch date does occur, and the latest official word from Apple is that a spring launch is on the cards, we can't see too many people queueing up to get their hands on a nine-month-old handset just because it isn't black.

We also suspect most potential punters will have either moved on to another mobile maker which is able to produce coloured hardware, or will hold out for the iphone 5 which might or might not tip up in the next three months or so, depending on whose rumour-mongering you believe.

Apple's fabled white iPhone 4 has been spotted lurking on an inventory system used by Vodafone .

Sneaky snaps of the system's screen have tipped up on Engadget and seem to show that the fabled iPhones for girls will be arriving soon.

The last we heard from Apple, it was hoping for a spring launch of the much-delayed variant of the omni-present handset, but production has been plagued by undisclosed manufacturing problems, rumours of which have been as numerous as the many failed launch dates.

Our favourite so far, is that manufacturing partner Foxconn has not been able to make the White iPhone 4's glass case panels opaque enough to prevent ambient light from leaking into the gadget's camera sensors.

The weiß iPhone 4 is shown in the blurrycam snaps in 16GB and 32GB flavours with the SKU numbers 300432 and 300434 respectively, but could just be down to forward planning on the behalf of Vodafone's database programmers or, of course, some pretty simple fakery.

And with Apple's iPhone 5 rumoured to be in the pipeline for release in the few months, there's every possibility that a white iPhone 4 alongwith other

 apple iphone Accessories will soon showcased at our store ,So get ready for the big bang.
