The White iPhone 4 has been spotted in the hands of Stephen Fry at the T3 Gadget Awards 2010. According to T3, Fry was talking about the Windows Phone 7 launch that he had attended earlier that day. When he reached for the new Windows Phone 7 that Microsoft had given him, however, Fry inadvertently pulled out his White iPhone 4.

Fry proceeded to taunt the audience and claimed that it was “The only white iPhone 4 currently in Europe”.

With the white iPhone 4 still unavailable to order from Apple, people are speculating how Stephen got his hands on the device. Was it an aftermarket job or is he in possession of one of the ‘ready-to-go’ white iPhone units? If the latter, could we see the white iPhone 4 before the holiday season?

Apple to launch new ad campaign "I'm Dreaming of a White (iPhone) Christmas".
Remember, you read it here first.

@hungwell I've been saying "white Christmas" since I heard it was delayed. Hopefully apple will say something at the Mac event next week!

He's shown off the white iPhone twice. The inadvertent episode was at the Bazaarvoice event. He quickly moved on.
Capitalising on the interest he then did it again - and very deliberately - at the T3 awards. At the second one he went further, stroking it on his jacket and singing "only one in Europe".

Old news. Fry has produced this same iPhone at numerous appearances over the past few months. He is a technology columnist in the UK (sideline for him) and receives samples of all new Apple products.

Watch Apple try to c*ck block the Window Phone 7 debut by releasing the white iPhone around the same time. That would be funny.

I know how he got it. He sent his black iphone in to iresq and they put a white case on it for 240 bucks like 5 others i know.

iBet Steve Jobs gave it to him for free if he promised to bust it out at this Windows event…
