  • [EXCLUSIVE] iPhone 4 ONLY in Black Initially


    Another of our AT&T sources has let us know AT&T's latest iPhone 4 release info.

    Apparently (see above image emailed to AT&T employees) the iPhone 4 will ONLY be available in black for pre-orders and launch. The initial lineup will be the 3G[S] in 8GB, and the black iPhone 4 at 16GB and 32GB.

    The white 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4 will be available "later this summer."

    iPhone 4 pre-orders being tomorrow (specific time has not been announced, but the iPad started being available on apple.com around 3-4AM PST when it was available for pre-order).

    Of course this is only through AT&T, but it doesn't seem Apple would short-change their partner in distributing the devices - no official word from Apple on the release of the iPhone 4 yet other than what we've already released - launch the 24th, pre-order the 15th.

    Looks like maybe their production warehouses didn't get those white ones done in time. Either that, or only enough for Apple themselves to sell.

    UPDATE 9:16 AM EST: Well, this about confirms it:

      Is there anywhere online that is selling cases? I really do not want to pay $30 for a bumper case from apple site. Plus, the bumper case does not ship until July 2.

      No white at Apple either.

      Damn, I was at the checkout screen on AT&T and didn't press it since I really wanted the white one. Now both sites are hammered, my session on AT&T expired, and now both sites are down hard.

      I hate being a Techno-Slave sometimes :P

      jesus, att site can't handle request, apple can't handle it.
      the store can't answer the phone.
      I know everyone and their dog is trying right now, but
      WHY does such a nice phone have to be tethered to such a useless, POS of a company?

      Was excited until I say no white available. Now I guess I'll have to wait.

      Did anyone notice that the 3GS listed in the MEMO says 8GB They don't even make an 8GB 3GS only 16GB and 32GB.

      my guess is: generate a few lies to keep traffic down in their stores.
      1. you can preorder online.. LOL! what a joke.
      2. you can't preorder white.

      clever strategy.

      WOW I am pissed. I love the white and couldn't wait to order the new one but def don't want the black iPhone 4. Hopefully a cool android phone doesn't come out before then because I am up on my ATT contract.

      I have no idea why Apple would possibly do this. Maybe they rushed to get the phone out quick after the leak?

      Looks like they changed the Unlimited Text options as well. Had a $30 Family plan for Unlimited and won't let me keep it when upgrading... have to go to $20 per phone.

      Grrrrrrr..

      Lol I have to apologize for calling this one shopped. You got it right MMi. I guess I'll have to trust you more than AT&T's crappy Communications Department, who can't even spell coherently. But if you think this was bad, you should have seen how much crap MacRumors were talking about this forum.

      This doesn't sound right at all. Can you confirm this after your purchase?

      Our local radio shack doesnt start pre-orders until 1pm, which is ok. They will put your name on a list of first come first get and will give you a pin number for when you come pick it up on the 24th. The manager was telling me that they may open at 7am on the 24th to hand out the phones, but if your name is on the list they will keep the phone for you to pick up at any time. I might use Radio Shack every year now

      BTW, this wasn't "an important ad about their most important cell phone" as many of you kept saying - this was a hastily compiled internal document to management detailing sudden changes in inventory availability. Big difference.
