蘋果(Apple)電腦原本說七月底就要供應白色版本的iPhone 4。

結果,跳票了。

Apple will begin shipping the white iPhone 4 model at the end of July. SlashGear reported that Apple CEO Steve Jobs said the white version of the device will be available in “limited quantities” at that time.

對堅持等待白色iPhone 4的一般消費大眾而言,全世界沒有任何一個地方可以買到這款心目中完美的夢幻機。

不過,有位名叫Stuart Miles的美國老兄,最近在紐約堵到了一位隨身配備了白色iPhone 4的神祕客。

這位由於擁有特殊門路而入手白色iPhone 4的神祕客,非常大方地跟Stuart Miles老兄分享了關於「白色iPhone 4為什麼遲遲不上市?」的內情。

Well, according to our jacket wearing gent, Apple is having trouble getting its two suppliers in the Far East to match the white used in the manufacturing of the parts. The white home button colour doesn't match the white front face plate colour, it turns out.

簡單地說,白色iPhone 4遲遲不上市的主因就是:蘋果在亞洲代工廠所提供home button配件的白,與整個iPhone 4面版的色調不符。

這讓我忍不住聯想到:往日做平面稿時,反覆再三跟製版廠周旋,一次又一次打樣回樣打樣回樣的磨人校色歷程。
