A tipster at Netherlands phone retailer BelCompany sent us the above picture of a company memo, detailing a Wednesday, April 27th launch for the white iPhone 4. Our sources in AT&T and Verizon say that they have still recieved no concrete information about a release date, though. So, is the white iPhone 4 launching next week? We think this might be the best proof yet. What a had a picture of the memo but we were asked not to post it. Here’s the translation:
This Wednesday, all retail stores will receive the white T-Mobile iPhone 4 16 GB. Also, a limited number of retail stores will receive one single white iPhone 4 32 GB. New supplies will be scarce/very limited. If the supply is exhausted/sold out, inform the customer that new deliveries are expected in 4 to 5 weeks time.
The source says that T-Mobile might have one month exclusivity on the white iPhone 4, in the Netherlands at least. Also, the white iPhone 4 supply is said to be in limited in Europe at launch, with availability increasing in the coming weeks. Even more interesting is that the white iPhone 4 has already arrived today at some European retailers. They have arrived in boxes with embargo stickers all over them – “due not open until April 27” – and are kept in the company safe. Both 16 GB and 32 GB capacities are said to be offered, as we have previously detailed, but quantities are said to initially be limited. Thanks, Simon for translating the memo!
According to iPhoneClub in the Netherlands, Apple and carriers are set to launch the white version of the iPhone 4 on Wednesday, April 27th. The information is said to come from an internal memo distributed to employees within a phone store called BelCompany in the Netherlands. The white iPhone 4 is said to be initially available with a contract through T-Mobile in the Netherlands.
