The white iPhone 4 saga is dragging on a bit isn't it?

We mean, first up the Jobster promised us (via his keynote slides) that it would be hitting the shops by the end of July, a statement backed up by Apple in the UK originally.

Then it was delayed for a few weeks, before an announcement was made stating that: "white models of Apple's new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year".

But how late in the year? That's the question.

Well, hopefully not too much longer now as The App Whisperer has managed to get hold of a snap of a Walmart sticker label offering the white iPhone 4 for the same price as the black one - $197 for the 16GB model with a 2-year data plan.

Could Walmart be readying its shelves for an imminent launch?
