White iPhone 4 available tomorrowApril 27, 2011
Apple Inc. made it official and announced that the white iPhone 4 will be available tomorrow at Apple Stores, AT&T and Verizon Wireless stores, and some other Authorized Resellers. The white iPhone 4 (as seen in this image from the Apple website) has been one of these technological mysteries that have kept many techies guessing why on earth has it been taking so long for Apple to release this version of the iPhone 4.
Some speculated that the white phones were cracking more than the black ones, others theorized that light was leaking through the white plastic affecting the camera. The conspiracy theorists did not sit out on this one as well and offered their version that the white iPhone 4 was just a story, and that it was never going to be released. So as we know Apple, we will probably never know if it was really a marketing stunt or mechanical difficulties that lead to an almost year long delay in the release of the white iPhone 4, but what counts now is that it is going to be available tomorrow, April 28, for everyone who has been waiting.
Despite the fact that the iPhone 4 has been on the market for almost a year now, and despite the increasing rumors about an iPhone 5 coming soon (how soon, well that is another questions), some analysts still think that the white version will create a big impact on the iPhone 4 sales. “The delayed launch of a white iPhone has created a certain mystique around the product,“ said Brian White, analyst at Ticonderoga Securities. “We expect incremental iPhone 4 purchases due to this launch, driven by replacements, upgrades and/or new iPhone 4 purchases.“
