I've recently got a new black iPhone 4S, but in iTunes and Xcode organizer it is shown as white (see screenshots below).
I purchased this new within the UK (model MD239B), but I'm not sure if it was ref or smth. The search request says it is a white one. Could it possibly be a refurbished device? I've checked the serial number on support.apple.com, there is no single word similar to 'refurbished'.
