  • [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:

      I don't know this for sure, but according to my att store, they won't even have them until the evening of the 24th, and when they get them they'll release them...

      yeah same here. I called two local AT&T stores and they both said they haven't heard that rumor.

      I'm going to print this out and bring it tomorrow morning. How terrible would it be though if we did pre-order our white iphones and when the 24th comes, they only get blacks in and us white have to wait? That's what I am worried about.

      sounds like I'll be waiting after all... $299 plus paying off my $167 bill is a hefty $466 commitment for a phone I wanted in black, but sounds like were all gonna be screwed re availability, as in there is none!

      I was leaning towards AT&T is responsible enough to proofread their memos before publicizing them. Which leads me to believe that the posted "memo" is not authentic.

      LOL -- and the word black is capitalized in the first sentence, but lower case in the second.
