Apple cere stergerea de pe eBay a anunturilor in care sunt vandute terminale iPhone 4 albe


Desi in mod oficial Apple a anuntat ca lansarea modelului alb a terminalului iPhone 4 a fost amanata pentru primavara anului viitor, iata ca site-ul de licitatii online eBay a primit de la companie  o notificare prin care i se cere sa stearga toate anunturile in care sunt puse spre vanzare terminale iPhone 4 albe.  Se pare ca terminalele iPhone 4 albe vandute pe eBay sunt defapt terminale negre cu carcasele schimbate, deci nu ar proveni din fabricile unde sunt asamblate terminalele iPhone 4. In cererea trimisa celor de la eBay Apple sustine ca respectivele terminale sunt contrafacute si ca ar trebui scoase de la licitatie. E greu de spus daca Apple incearca sa impiedice lumea din a cumpara un model de iPhone care s-ar putea sa nu fie vreodata lansat oficial sau pur si simplu incearca sa acopere niste “gauri” de securitate ale fabricilor unde sunt asamblate terminale iPhone 4.
