Tech Today: Apple confirms White iPhone 4, outs iOS 4.3.2

The tech news that broke after you logged-off.

The infamous White iPhone 4 has finally been officially confirmed by Apple for a release this spring according to the Wall Street Journal. The White iPhone 4 has been delayed for ten months due to manufacturing issues, but reports this week have claimed that its arrival is imminent. Now the WSJ says Apple has confirmed the release, but didn't commit beyond the "spring" launch. Well it's mid-April now, it must be soon right? RIGHT?

Revenue was up to $6.6bn for the quarter, rising from $5bn over the same period last year, but high costs saw earnings per share come in at $8.08, which missed the forecast profits of $8.10. We're not sure they'll be pressing the panic button just yet.

BlackBerry Playbook reviews are starting to come in and its a mixed bag for RIM. Engadget's review says that the PlayBook will appeal to BlackBerry fans, but might struggle to win over those who have a preference for iOS and Android operating systems. RIM's answer to the iPad still has somewhat of an unfinished flavour to the review, but we'll be reserving judgement until PlayBook review samples arrive in Blighty.
