  • [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:

      Total crap if its true! I'm already a bit upset that If I order with at&t I can't pick it up at 7am on the 24th. The press release says you can't pick it up until Friday the 25th, but my local store says I can pick it up the EVENING of the 24th!

      Sounds like you just need to stand inline if you want a phone ASAP on the 24th.

      So...nothing's preventing a current AT&T customer from upgrading through the Apple site if that's where we can get white...correct?

      I'm going to have it shipped to my home this time. I don't exactly live in the city, so usually the shipping trucks show up LATE in the day. Plus, since our at&t is in a fairly small city, I usually end up standing with the same people every year, kinda cool to meet up with them each time.

      i like white bc of the fact that fingerprints r hard to see. black just looks better with the fact that u csn tell finger smuges all over. but id go with black anytime.

      Well, before you get all annoyed, why don't you check with Apple/Wal-Mart/BestBuy/Radioshack? I mean this notice was for AT&T pre-orders only, but does not mean it will be the same for the other 4 vendors.

      I'm really torn between the colors. I've always had the white ones, but the all white one here looks terrible I think. The not showing fingerprints, as someone said, is a plus. But it looks terrible with a white front. Decisions, decisions.

      I want the white one primarily because it doesn't look like EVERY OTHER SMARTPHONE out there...that said, if I can't pre-order a white one tomorrow I'm gettin' the black.
