Adding to recent rumors of the White iPhone 4 possibly shipping on April 27 come more from Engadget, this time in the form of images from a Vodafone UK customer who was lucky enough to get their hands on one a little early. After Vodafone realized one had gotten loose, they sent out a notice to halt all sales of the White iPhone 4 until next week.
we’ve secured a few images of a 16GB model from a separate source that has seemingly made its way into the hands of one lucky customer (read: bloke) over in Britain […] Voda sent out a notice to halt sale of these gems “until next week.”
Apparently a Vodafone sales rep rang up the White iPhone 4 as a Black 16gb model in their point-of-sale system before the company told its employees not to sell units carrying the MC604B/A model number. The current UK 16gb Black iPhone 4 has a model number of MC603B/A, with the ‘4′ presumably representing the difference in color for that capacity.
Apple has repeatedly gone on the record saying the White iPhone 4 would come out “this spring”, but that window is quickly closing. With these new images could we actually be on the verge of seeing real White iPhone 4 units in-hand by the month’s end? Let us know what you think in the comments.
