Teenage boy earns $130,000 with white iPhone 4 kits

Posted on Wednesday, November 17 2010 @ 18:58:39 CET by


Apple's failure to manufacture a white iPhone 4 has made a 17-year old boy from Queens very happy. High school senior Fei Lam managed to cut a deal with Foxconn and has earned $130,000 by selling white conversion kits for the iPhone 4:
Not content to wait that long, high school senior Fei Lam cut out the middleman and went straight to Apple parts supplier Foxconn, according to The New York Observer. The result was whiteiphone4now.com, a conversion kit that claims to allow customers to convert a black iPhone 4 to a white model. The site launched in July and at the time, it was unclear if the kits were, as TechCrunch observed, ''simply a bunch of parts from the black iPhone painted white''.

"I knew a guy from a few years back that had somewhat of a relationship with folks in Foxconn," he told The Observer by email. He claimed that after initially selling the parts at a loss, attention from tech websites had allowed him to make US$130,000 in profit since August. Lam is currently selling the full conversion kit, which includes back and front panels, a retina display, supporting frame, front glass, digitizer, home button, back glass and LED diffuser and all necessary tools for US$279 plus shipping.
