Any colour - so long as not white?

It seems that Henry Ford knew something that Steve Jobs might benefit from. The story from Reuters (uk.reuters.com/article/idUKTRE66M29C20100723) is intriguing. Apparently making a white iPhone has "continued to be more challenging to manufacture that we originally expected." According to several websites the company involved in manufacturing glass for the iPhone’s signature shell is still working out the perfect combination of paint thickness and opacity to achieve Apple’s trademark absolute whiteness.
