Rumor has it the white iPhones are out there, but as rare as an albino whale. This iPhone costs $979 NZ without a contract (but locked to Vodafone, of course). So from now on i guess you know what’s going to happen with this iPhone 3g, it’s gonna get dismantled by the guys from iFixit.

Perhaps the least-touted new feature of the iPhone 3G is the flush headphone jack, allowing non-Apple headphones to be used without an adapter. Yay!

TechOnline will be decapping the chips that the guys from iFixit can’t identify, tomorrow, after the US release. They soak the chip in an acid bath to eat away the ceramic coating, then use x-rays and other fancy equipment to examine it.

Perhaps one of the first misteryes of the new Iphone 3G is the recycle marker on the battery that has been blacked out with a marker.


And I’m closing this article with a group photo. From top left to bottom right: Display glass, LCD, Main board and EMI shield, Antenna and battery, Back panel.

Thanks iFixit for showing us what’s the new iPhone 3G made off.
