We have some interesting news to share with you this evening. The Apple Store went down at Midnight Eastern time. Since then, our retail contact went into Apple’s system and the only change noticed was the removal of the White iPhone SKU.

Yes, removal.

What does this mean?  Perhaps nothing.  Perhaps Apple is readying the new White iPhone with a new SKU?  OR perhaps it has been kiboshed until iPhone 5 time.  We’ll update when the store goes live but feel free to chime in below.

Update: It’s back up.
