Apple has just issued a statement on the white iPhone and it's not good news for those still holding out for the now almost mythical device:

White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.

Anyone still going to wait? Sound off in comments...
