Apple’s Senior Vice President Phil Schiller: White iPhone Coming This Spring

Today’s bolt from the blue comes courtesy of Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller, with the man himself stating on Twitter that the white iPhone will be available this Spring.

In a reply to a question about when a white iPhone would be available for purchase, Schiller used his verified Twitter account to reply, saying "The white iPhone will be available this spring (and it is a beauty!)."

Two things are interesting here. First is the fact an Apple employee has actually given some real information about the availability of the unicorn-like device, and second is the use of Twitter as the medium. With Schiller’s account being verified by Twitter there is little doubt this is indeed the SVP himself. Is Apple starting to converse with its users, even if it is limited to 140 characters?

Perhaps the real question here is whether the Spring white iPhone is an iPhone 4 model or something else.

As Engadget wisely points out, time will indeed tell.
