A report by AppleInsider indicates that US-based Apple Stores have started to prepare for the upcoming white iPhone 4 launch on April 27th. 9to5 Mac suggests that Verizon Wireless’ CDMA version of the phone will also be available on the same day.
According to the report, US-based Apple Stores have started to receive various promotional materials for the white iPhone 4. In the USA, the device is expected to launch on AT&T and Verizon “within the next week”.
9to5Mac also speculates that supplies could be a little on the low side, with white 32GB units being particularly hard to get hold of:
Most stores have about ten 16 GB units on order for launch day, but there could be more coming, and inventory numbers for the 32 GB units are unconfirmed. If the white iPhone 4 launch in Europe is any indication, there might be a shortage of 32 GB units in the U.S.
This new development with Apple retail stores comes just a few days after various inventory systems of other company’s, such as Best Buy, Vodafone, and Fido, revealed white iPhone 4 SKU’s.
Thus far, indications point to an announcement or release date of the white iPhone 4 by Wednesday, April 27th.
