Vodafone UK accidentally sells White iPhone 4, says it will officially drop "next week"

Adding to recent rumors of the White iPhone 4 possibly shipping on April 26 come more from Engadget, this time in the form of images from a Vodafone UK customer who was lucky enough to get their hands on one a little early. After Vodafone realized one had gotten loose, they sent out a notice to halt all sales of the White iPhone 4 until next week.

we've secured a few images of a 16GB model from a separate source that has seemingly made its way into the hands of one lucky customer (read: bloke) over in Britain [...] Voda sent out a notice to halt sale of these gems "until next week."

Apparently a Vodafone sales rep rang up the White iPhone 4 as a Black 16gb model in their point-of-sale system before the company told its employees not to sell units carrying the MC604B/A model number. The current UK 16gb Black iPhone 4 has a model number of MC603B/A, with the '4' presumably representing the difference in color for that capacity.

Apple has repeatedly gone on the record saying the White iPhone 4 would come out "this spring", but that window is quickly closing. With these new images could we actually be on the verge of seeing real unicorns White iPhone 4 units in-hand by the month's end? Let us know what you think in the comments and hit the jump for more photos!

Samsung countersues Apple for patent infringement

Samsung has countersued Apple for the infringement of 5 patents, this in response to Apple's suit against Samsung for patent and trademark violations filed earlier this week.

"Samsung is responding actively to the legal action taken against us in order to protect our intellectual property and to ensure our continued innovation and growth in the mobile communications business,"

Apple's lawsuit seemed focused on preventing Samsung from copying the look and feel of iPhone and iPad in the Galaxy S line of tablets and TouchWiz skins. Samsung's seems focused on trying to match the patent portion. It will be interesting to see how they respond to the trademarks.

Anyone else thinking that if they continued to innovate, they wouldn't be facing the trademark charges?
