  • White iPhone 4 Shows Up in Best Buy Inventory System

    image: MacRumors

    MacRumors is reporting that they've received photo evidence, allegedly from Best Buy's inventory system, of the white iPhone 4. The photo states that the phone is set for a February 27 launch date. The inventory screenshot shows both the 16 GB and 32 GB models will be available.

    Apparently the SKU and model numbers are the exact same as when pre-orders were being taken for the white iPhone 4 before it's launch in June of last year. Those pre-orders were of course cancelled as the release was delayed, and delayed once again.

    Last we heard, the white iPhone 4 was scheduled for a Spring 2011 release date, and demand for the product has all but subsided as most consumers have looked elsewhere for their phone at this point, either at the black iPhone 4, or at another phone altogether. A Spring 2011 launch would not come with much fanfare, as Apple is expected to announce their next generation iPhone in the Spring or early Summer of this year, just as they have in the past few years.

    The only validity we see in this report is that this discovery coincides with an Engadget report that the white iPhone 4 had showed up in the inventory system of Vodaphone Germany as well. There was no release date indicated in that inventory, however, with the phone's just saying they'd be released "soon."

    MacRumors is quick to point out that February 27 would be a very odd release date for Apple, as it is a Sunday, whereas Apple normally launches their products on Thursday or Friday, "in order to generate high-volume sales over the launch weekends."

    Another day, another white iPhone 4 rumor, we'll keep you posted if we hear anything official.

      Whenever I buy anything, I'm always looking as far ahead as possible, so for me, this is waaaay too late to make it worth while. Just wait for the next iPhone 5, if it comes out in white, you can have the newest product for 12 months instead of 5 months tops...

      Just another rumor to fill the void of the "Verizon iPhone no-longer rumor" rumor.

      I doubt Apple would release on a Sunday. I think most of the sales will be from Verizon since AT&T customers bought a black iphone cause they got tired of waiting for the white to come out.

      These rumors always show up. Saying this and that...but never fall through according to plan. Just like whoooo "jailbreak for 4.2 before Christmas" yea........right. You can't believe much of the posts on here anymore. Believe it when the product in seen by you or in your own hand.

      I'm still sitting back waiting on the Iphone4 (Black Ops Edition). Black Ops Edition in digital camouflage would be the ****.

      Best buy employees love creating these type of documents.

      Same thing showed up in Walmart stores a while back. They created and loaded their sku for each possible sale. I call this. Crap info just to raise chat traffic.

      Even if it were true...what's the point. Most of us who wanted white already have black, and now how am I supposed to get white? I'd rather wait for a new iPhone b/c it is probably due in the next 5-6 months. Won't be wasting my money on a white iPhone 4. Puttin' on my angry face.
