So will the white iPhone 4 really be released next week? Talks regarding the release of the white Apple iPhone 4 have been going on over the past six months, but most recently rumors were kicked into hyper drive when Apple said that they had plans to launch the white iPhone 4 in the “spring”. Originally it was intended to be released earlier but there were delays reportedly due to issues with the white paint which was being used. Due to the delay, it was also speculated that the white iPhone 4 might not see the light of day at all with the release of the latest iPhone version scheduled for sometime around September.
Although the release date of April 27 is not confirmed, the best proof for this claim’s validity comes from Dutch site iPhoneclub as they claim they have received tips from phone retailers and sources working with phone carriers who would be carrying the white iPhone 4. English translation is as follows:
Several reliable sources who wish to remain anonymous, says now Mobili.no that the white version goes on sale in the Norwegian mobile shops this coming Wednesday, 27 April.
It will be distributed in both Telenor’s and NetCom’s stores.
We received this information through an anonymous tip from someone who works BelCompany. Then we started looking for other people who BelCompany works that could confirm the information. That was the case: they indicate that an internal memo was circulated, indicating the date of April 27 for the white iphone called April. We assume the assumption that BelCompany not the only point of sale, but several other telecom stores (like The Phone House) and T-Mobile itself also start selling the white iPhone
Although this is good news for those who had been sitting on their piggy banks waiting for white iPhone 4′s release, if it really does get released on April 27th, it would be sure that the iPhone 5 would not be released sooner than September as two back to back phone releases come off as a huge marketing blunder. And frankly, Apple doesn’t come across as a company which makes too many mistakes.
