Woz Bought White iPhone 4 Parts From Chinese Kid Apple Shut Down

Remember that Chinese teen that use a “connection” at Foxconn to get his hands on white iPhone 4 parts? This is the same kid that Apple shut down later for selling the parts. Well, good ol’ Woz saw the parts in a post somewhere and had to turn his iPhone 4 into a white one anyway.

I would have thought that woz could have snapped his fingers and had a white iPhone in his hand in a day. Woz actually bought the parts for the white iPhone he flashed in an interview from that kid the company he helped start later shut down. I like Woz, but buying those parts seems like a big FU to pal Steve and Apple to me. Or at least to the Apple legal team.

I can just imagine “Woz going hey Steve, check this out” and whipping out the white iPhone 4. Woz later wrote CNN when the pub asked about the white iPhone 4 saying, “I saw a post and got in quick and ordered my set of parts.”
