Following an introduction by CEO Tim Cook and the announcement of iOS 5 arriving on October 12 from Scott Forstall, Eddy Cue took the stage to chat up iCloud prior to Phil Schiller’s introduction of all things iPod related.
We all survived a long, national nightmare waiting for the white iPhone 4, which was delayed a handful of times before finally being made available in late April. The question now is, could the same fate soon befall a newly leaked white iPod touch that may be introduced this fall?

Did Phil Schiller tell a little white lie about a little white iPhone being on track for this spring? In an ominous sign of the troubled handset’s future, Apple’s online store went down for maintenance at midnight last night and came back up with the white iPhone 4 removed entirely.

ModMyi reports that it has received an alleged AT&T memo from a source that claims the carrier will only be taking pre-orders for the black iPhone 4 models. The white model will become available "later this summer."
