White iPhone 4 to ship on April 20 in UK

The absurdly long wait for the white iPhone 4 is (probably) over. British retailer Three UK has officially listed the elusive smartphone for order on its website, reports The Next Web. The device will sell for a subsidized price of £159 for the 32GB model, the same as the black version. The site estimates delivery for April 20, this Wednesday.

If it all pans out, Three’s white iPhone 4 listing is the first of its kind, with real carrier options to boot. It also confirms earlier rumors that have been around for some time that Apple would release the device sometime at the end of April. 

According to Engadget, however, Three was unable (or unwilling) to confirm the listing, or the April 20 availability, when the site spoke with Three representatives. This implies that someone at Three may have put the listing up earlier than intended.

Other rumors out today point to the exact date of April 26 as so-called “white iPhone day.” That detail comes via iPhoneItalia, and, if accurate, probably refers to the white iPhone’s release date in Italy, not the US.

Also today, we have new rumors about the iPhone 5, which some say will be pushed back to an October release date. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of Concord Securities, the iPhone 5 will come loaded with the same A5 processor that’s found in the iPad 2, as well as an 8 megapixel camera. (That camera is said to be made by Sony, rather than Apple’s regular optics supplier OmniVision.)

Kuo also says that, while Apple will offer “slight” design modifications on its fifth generation iPhone, the company will focus more on the software’s operating system (i.e. iOS 5) rather than major hardware changes.

As far as the white iPhone 4 is concerned, we’re all once again waiting to see the device can actually be purchased. That is, those of us who haven’t given up on the device entirely are waiting. Everyone else is just waiting for the iPhone 5 — even if that one is a little late, too.

How to use iMessage on an Android phone or tablet
iMessage on an iPhone 14 Pro Max, plus iMessage on an Android phone using the Beeper app.

One of the big draws of iPhone and Mac is the iMessage software. This texting app makes it easy to stay connected to friends and family, and many users point to it as a key reason they stay within the Apple ecosystem – venture off to Android, and you'll be stuck with third-party apps or standard text chats.

However, that's not actually the case anymore. While Apple's iMessage software is exclusive to iOS and you won't find it in the Google Play Store, a new app called Beeper lets you access the iMessage platform. The universal chat app works with a variety of texting software beyond iMessage, making it a one-stop-shop for all your communication needs.
