Woz's white iPhone 4 is a fake

We told you earlier that CNN reported on Steve Wozniak having a white iPhone 4 and we’ve just found out it’s a fake! Reader Josh sent Apple’s co-founder an e-mail and here’s the reply:

This Chinese teen sold the white parts on the internet. I got in early (although the kid had already made $130K) and got my front and back plates and modified my iPhone 4.

Oh, and we thought Woz had connections.  Apple recently shut down that kid so it shows Woz is still going rogue.  

Thanks @joshtania!
