White iPhone 4 Delay Cause

What Do You Think Is Delaying the White iPhone 4?

Apple cited "continuing manufacturing issues" as the latest reason for the delayed white iPhone 4. People are speculating on different reasons for the delay, from paint issues to antenna fixes. Whatever the reason, white iPhone 4 fans are understandably bummed they'll have to wait even longer for their new phone — what do you think is causing the delay?

@zz: I think SKG might be right about the white plastic cracking easier. White plastic is always weaker due to the lack of carbon. The less carbon the lower the strength. This is why black plastic is stronger.

I'm guessing if the white iPhone comes with an antenna fix then the black iPhone users are going to hit the ceiling and good this time, and no amount of free cases or bumper is going to solve it this time.

Not necessarily true, SKG. The black 3GS tends to have the same micro-cracks around the ports as well, they're just more difficult to see on the black plastic. I agree with you on the antenna though, it would be bizarre to overhaul the hardware design for a different color of the phone right after that conference and openly stating that the 4 has minimal complaints even compared to the 3GS. Jobs stays pretty firm in his view on things, I can't see another hardware redesign until at least a year from now.
