It's already been pretty much confirmed that the white iPhone 4 will ship next week, and specifically, at least in part of Europe, April 27. A new report seems to assert that the April 27 date will be global, with the white iPhone 4 showing up at Best Buy on that date.

A source at Best Buy sent 9 to 5 Mac an inventory screenshot that details an April 27th launch date for the white version at the retailer. While that screenshot shows the AT&T (GSM) version of the white iPhone 4, the white iPhone 4 showed up in Verizon's inventory database a week ago. Given that, we'd bet that a white Verizon version will be available at Best Buy that same day, as well.

The prior report said that in Europe, supplies would be scarce, and that a new supply of white iPhone 4's might take 4 - 5 weeks time. That would mean the resupply wouldn't occur until about June which, assuming the rumored September date for the iPhone 5 launch is correct, gives Apple three months to fulfill as much white iPhone 4 pent-up demand as possible.

It looks like the mythical beast is nearly here.

I don't get why they want to release it now... why not just wait it off till the next version? How many people will drop their current black one for a white one??? :)

You'll never know who'll drop from black to white.

As for your statement, I agree. They've waited too long to introduce the white version of the iPhone 4; I'm hoping that there are still some people who are eagerly anticipating the white iPhone like the second coming of christ.

More chances to make money is all its about. Some people will drop from black to white and then some of those people will drop from iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 when it comes out.

I think its because iphone5 is being speculated to be released in September.... not june/july/august. This is just to leech the hell outta sales imo
