The White iPhone 4 is coming tomorrow. After months of gadget geeks speculating and showing a great deal of enthusiasm for a new color of iPhone, Apple has officially announced its arrival.
The white device will be available on Apple’s online store and at Apple retail stores, and AT&T and Verizon stores, as well as from “select Apple authorized resellers.”
“The white iPhone 4 has finally arrived and it’s beautiful,” said Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing Philip Schiller.
Yep, the VP of product marketing says it’s beautiful.
“We appreciate everyone who has waited patiently while we’ve worked to get every detail right,” he added.
Patiently is one way of putting it. Another would be obsessing nearly every day – something that has become evident if you follow TechMeme on a regular basis.
The demand is there. No question. “white iphone” is currently one of the top hot searches on Google trends.
Apple says the white iPhone 4 will be available in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Macau, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, UK and the US, beginning Thursday, April 28 and in many more countries around the world soon. It will cost $199 (US) for the 16GB model and $299 (US) for the 32GB model with a new two year agreement.
Now we can all go back to obsessing about the iPhone 5 (and even the iPhone 6’s pending release). The real question here is: when is the white iPhone 6 going to be released? It’s a different color!
