It’s official, folks: Apple announced Wednesday that the white iPhone 4 will be in stores tomorrow, April 28.
We really mean it this time.
“The white iPhone 4 has finally arrived and it’s beautiful,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing in a release.
“We appreciate everyone who has waited patiently while we’ve worked to get every detail right.”
Schiller, tweeted in March that the phone would be coming this spring.
The phone will be available in Europe, Australia, Asia and the U.S. for the same price as its darker counterpart: $199 for 16GB or $299 for 32GB with a two-year agreement.
A report from Bloomberg earlier this month crediting inside sources said the phone’s 10-month delay was due to manufacturing problems such as peeling paint and sensor issues.
Many have been waiting to buy the iPhone 4 until they could get it in white. The question now is whether they’ll decide it’s worth it to wait for the next version of the iPhone, which is widely expected to be coming this fall.
Will you be in line tomorrow to spend the summer on a white iPhone? Or will you wait until the iPhone 5?
