Apple delayed the release of White iPhone 4s several times, believed to be due to technical hurdles which prevented assembly -- included finding proper paint thickness, and mixing the paint in such a way that it doesn't flake. Officially, the release date for white iPhones remains "later this year."

A report from China suggests that "White iPhone 4s are in production," -- a worker at a mainland Chinese factory is claimed to have carried a white phone into Hong Kong, using the box for a black model as a disguise. Photos of the smuggled iPhone show white trim inside the headphone and docking ports, as well as slightly modified slits around the earpiece.
