probably the leaking battery situation, which apple dont seem to want to address

Because it's available in white now...even though it's delayed by almost a year and there's probably a new one out in a few months people still want the new "thing"

Prob because iPhone 5 is coming out soon and iPhone 4's were released a year ago

that's what I though but iPhone 5 is not till September - so all these poor Aplle fanboys/girls will end up with a cheapo phone for 4 months at least

as for the white one - are Apple fans so gullable / got so much money ?

i am going to sell mine becuase i want iphone 5 and sale now will be more than in 4 months when the iphone 5 comes out and everyone whats to sell and prices go down

Problem is, if iPhone details leak then the price of your iPhone 4 will drop..

Also, the 2-4 weeks before an Apple event the price drops sharply as forums fill up with them. Then when released, the price drops again.. You go from owning something worth £400 to being worth £250-£300.

As people have said, June is fast approaching.

IPhone users are all sheep.

I expect a month after iphone 5 comes out (which will be little different to v4), they will start selling ready to buy the next version.

Steve Jobs has them like lambs to the slaughter. . . . . Lolwut

everyone is swapping to white from black for obvious reasons

because they are

Mr Jobs and the folks from Infinite Loop certainly have created the perfect business model ......

I have a custom ROM designed Android based HTC Magneto with face recognition and satellite voip. It also uses a neural impulse actuator as the interface, so I can navigate the menus with just thought. I have actually been walking around and called my parents accidentally because I was thinking 'maybe I should call them'. Other than that it is quite good.

My galaxy tab has a 7" screen and predictive text.

It predicted that someone would get jealous and ask what phones everyone else has! It's never wrong!

Blackberry 9700 for personal use and HTC Magic (2.2 froyo) for business

not really an Apple hater - just think the iPhone is way over priced for what you get

my BB is £20/month and the phone was free

now can get a decent droid for under £20/month and free phone - can't get from Mr Jobs

Whether you pay £400 for a hunk of crap or £149, still doesn't change the fact that it's a hunk of crap.
