‚Äö√Ñ√∫The white iPhone 4 has finally arrived and it‚Äö√Ñ√¥s beautiful,‚Äö√Ñ√π said Philip Schiller, Apple‚Äö√Ñ√¥s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. ‚Äö√Ñ√∫We appreciate everyone who has waited patiently while we‚Äö√Ñ√¥ve worked to get every detail right.‚Äö√Ñ√π
Everything else about the phone is what you'd expect: Retina‚Äö√ë¬¢ display. FaceTime. 16 GB model for US$199, or 32 GB for US$299, with two years of servitude to the Death Star…er, a two-year AT&T voice and data contract. Buy it at Apple stores, AT&T, Verizon, or select Apple Authorized Resellers. It'll be available in twenty-eight major countries (Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Macau, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, UK and the US…whew!) on the 28th with most of the rest of the world to follow. Basically, if your country has running water and at least one television channel, you'll be able to buy a white iPhone 4.
(By a funny coincidence, the prototype white i4 being auctioned off on eBay yesterday for an exorbitant price? Well, the listing has…mysteriously vanished. Then again, it's the age-old question: spend several thousand dollars on a test model of indeterminate, never mind dubious, origin, or drop two C-notes on a brand spankin' new unit? Well, duh…)
