Phil Schiller confirms that the white iPhone is coming in spring, but is it the iPhone 4?

Apple’s Senior Vice President of Marketing, Philip Schiller has confirmed via his twitter account, that the white iPhone is still coming and will be available in spring 2011.

The white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!).

This could be a cryptic message and it may not even refer to the white iPhone 4 as there is no mention of a specific model in his tweet. Schiller may even be referring to a white iPhone 5 which could appear before the end of spring. If we take June 21st as the start of summer and mix that with the likelihood that iPhone 5 will be announced at WWDC at the beginning of June. It may be possible to have it released before June 21st. This could then still be classed as spring. Of course this is pure speculation on our part but it would make much more sense than just releasing a white iPhone 4 at this late stage.

What do you think? Is Phil Schiller still talking about the iPhone 4 in white or could it be the iPhone 5? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
