“DIY” White iPhones

A 17-year-old geek from Queens has turned the fervor for the unreleased white iPhone 4 into a six-figure business — enough to send himself to college, so long as he can stay out of trouble with the law.

So when Fei Lam, a high school senior and gadget nerd, got a tip about buying up some white iPhone 4 parts, he saw the opportunity to finally make his passion for electronics pay off.

You can see his work at http://www.whiteiphone4now.com/

If he sold them without the Apple logo it likely wouldn’t be as big of a problem, but it appears the parts may be directly from Apple’s factory (Foxconn) *and* they may be stolen. 17 year olds are running international supply chains now. This 17 year old is out-Apple’ing Apple 🙂
