White iPhone 4 sold early to Vodafone customer

Could we be seeing a white iPhone 4 sometime in the very near future? According to several sources, retailers have made space for the device. Many rumors of the release date have appeared around the Internet, often with a degree of potential credibility. According to Engadget, Vodafone's inventory system has shown the white iPhone 4 to be shipping in at some point.

Better yet, at least one customer has gotten their hands on the highly sought-after model, after images of the box and the handset appeared online. The model numbers for the white iPhone 4 models might also reflect their differences from the black model. The model number used for the 16GB black iPhone 4 is MC603B/A. The white iPhone 4 is MC604B/A. The 32GB black iPhone 4 has a model number of MC605B/A - could a white model be MC606B/A? 

According to 9 to 5 Mac, the white iPhone 4 could be appearing on April 27th. A retailer at BelCompany, a Dutch phone provider, tipped the site off that a white model iPhone 4 could appear at the company sometime soon. A quote was also present on the page, and when translated, reads the following:

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.


It may just be the proof of a white iPhone 4 that could make some customers decide to hold off on the purchase of a standard device, at least until the end of the month in order to confirm the existence of a white model. The only remaining question is whether or not the white iPhone 4 will sell well, especially considering theories of a so-called 'iPhone 4S', or 'iPhone 5', releasing sometime during the year.

Who cares about the colour? Seriously, most people slip their expensive phone straight into a case. the black/white/pink/yellow or whatever hideous apple colour it is is hardly seen

Ok, i myself own a iPhone 4 Black 32GB Factory Unlocked which i bought from eBay India a year ago, and its an UK iPhone 4 (factory unlocked)>

My frnd bought an exact White iPhone 4 32gb Factory Unlocked from eBay for the same price. They were selling White iPhone 4s factory unlocked in the beginning, but then they stopped due to issues with the white color.

It's white. That's what's new about it...

That guy should sell it on ebay for a fortune, he could probably make close to a grand alone on it i bet. Pic on engadget.

I can't justify buying Apple hardware mid or late cycle. I'd prefer to wait until the new iPhone is released - even if it is next year.

T-mobile europe isn't AWS I take it? Because a AWS iPhone would be HUGE news.
