Not content on waiting until Spring, people who are holding out for the white iPhone 4 are taking measures into their own hands. Our community assistant recently posted a pic of her brother holding a white iPhone 4, and, no, he is not BFFs with Steve Jobs. This pic looks like the real deal, and her brother says that he bought the phone off of eBay.
My question is, where are these white iPhone 4s even coming from — another case of a Chinese copycat? While some are upfront fakes, most have been customized with a new front and back white cover that are available from a website in China, and seem a pain to install. (Maybe the people there can help Apple with the paint job issue?) The phones are unlocked, which means no warranty, and each hovers around the $600 range.
Our community assistant and I want to know: would you buy the white iPhone 4 off of eBay?
