White iPhone 4 Delay According to Wozniak
Yes more rumblings on that mythical beast, the white iPhone 4 today, this time apparently Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak appears to have given his thoughts as to why the white iPhone 4 has been delayed so long, something we’d all like to know.
According to an article over on Ubergizmo and by way of Electronista, Wozniak was a guest on the Engadget show, and apparently believes that the white iPhone 4 has been delayed due to the device’s camera.
Apparently, eager for a white version of the iPhone 4, Wozniak went the DIY route and purchased some white components and once done when he took some photos with the flash enabled discovered that they appeared as if captured through “cellophane,” which was due to light spillover.
Furthermore Wozniak also made mention that there seemed to be a problem with the proximity sensor. Having said that, Wozniak wasn’t using an official Apple white iPhone 4 but rather a DIY kit. Wozniak did state though that he was aware the paint problem with the white iPhone 4 had been fixed, and that the device should begin shipping soon.
It’s not too clear if Wozniak has insider info on the shipping of the white iPhone 4, but with several carriers having the white iPhone 4 showing up in their internal systems lately something must be happening I would have thought.
