In today’s rather uninspiring economy, it is the entrepreneurs who have the upper hand. While the general population is busy trying to figure out how to blend in and adapt to the here and now, the entrepreneur is looking outside of the box and be different. The latter of which is precisely what 17-year old Fei Lam has done. Instead of thinking about the latest senior party in highschool, he’s making a killing selling “official” white iPhone 4 kits…
In reality, Lam is in college and speaks fluent Chinese. This is important because it apparently has helped him score a source from within Foxconn — the iPhone 4 manufacturer — whom is passing white iPhone 4 parts on to him.
Now, that signals theft and IP infringement to me. I mean, if the parts are in fact real, Apple is surely not giving this kid the rights and approval to resell the parts at nearly $300 a pop.
Supposedly Lam has already received a one “nasty” letter from a Private Investigator. Though oddly enough, Apple has remained silent. (I assume they’re building a monster of a case to scare this kid into submission…)
In the meantime, Lam isn’t deterred. He’s stated on this website, WhiteiPhone4Now.com that he won’t be stopping. And,
if when Apple does send the legal hounds after him, he’s got a lawyer already lined up.
Looks like we’re preparing for a fight. With that said, anyone picked up one of these white iPhone 4 cases? They sure do look awfully nice…
