    I believe white is 3G and blue is 4G.

    It all has to do with being connected to Google's servers I believe

    that's what it was for 3G. Blue meant connected and able to sync with google servers. White meant you were not connected and able to sync with google servers. But I believe internet worked ok with white. So, I would guess it is the same for 4G since it is still Gingerbread and this feature (blue/white) came with GB.

    inteernal memory?

    not sure but, when I used up almost all internal memory(a warning indicated low internal memory), I noticed the change from blue to white in the 4G lte icon. Deleting a few unnecessary aps fixed the color back to blue when I restored internal memory to an acceptable level.

    I've noticed that color change occasionally as well on my new Bionic, but I don't think the TB did this.

    This is correct. If there is a 4g or 3g showing that means you have a data connection. Blue means it is connected to google servers. White means it is not.

    So the obvious question is where is the app to detect this condition and enable the correct data medium?

    This correct according to a Motorola Forums Manager. Blue means connected to Google servers and white means you have phone, email and text, but you are not connected to the google servers.

    This contradicts what I'm seeing. When I have white 4G, I am still unable to get email, web, any data. Once I disable 4G and go to 3G, I get everything back.

    You might be on the fringe of a 4g zone.
