Since getting confirmation last week from Apple that the white iPhone 4 is absolutely, positively going to launch in the very near future, we’ve been flooded with rumors about just when the smartphone will finally be available. We’ve seen it in Verizon’s computers, and heard from Europe that the phone might be showing up on April 26. Now there’s one more date to throw in the running, with a report out of England saying the iOS device may arrive this week, on April 20.
ThreeUK is offering the white iPhone 4 on pre-order, advising interested customers that the earliest they should expect the device to ship would be this Wednesday, the 20th. There is some concern that this information may be a typo; after all, Apple only confirmed the phone a few days ago, with nothing more committal than saying it would be out this spring. You’d think that if the company bothered to make a statement regarding the phone’s release just a week before its launch, it would have something a little more concrete to reveal regarding the phone’s availability.
It’s probably not a smart move betting on this rumor, but it’s one more possibility of which you should at least be aware.
