We’ve been talking about it for years and known its coming since October, but today Apple officially confirmed that a white version of the iPhone 4 will be available tomorrow. You may all let out your inner white. And if you’re really crazy, don’t forget that you can buy a matching white iPad 2 to go with your new phone.
“The white iPhone 4 has finally arrived and it’s beautiful,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “We appreciate everyone who has waited patiently while we’ve worked to get every detail right.”
It’s unknown how much the new color variation will affect sales in the United States, but it’s expected to be a huge seller in China, where white is currently considered the “it” color for trendy electronics.
The device goes on sale 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 U.S. beginning April 28, 2011. It will cost the same as a standard iPhone 4 and should be available at most retailers with Apple products.
Are any of you planning to pick up a white iPhone 4, or are you holding out for Apple to reintroduce the bright neon iMac colors that helped it make a comeback in the late 1990s? You may have to wait a while.
