UK mobile network Orange is emailing its UK customers to let them know that the white iPhone 4 will not be available until next year.
Here is the message they sent out…
We wanted to let you know that there won’t be any white iPhone 4’s in the UK until the end of the year.
If you’re happy to wait another few months we’ll let you know as soon as they’re back in stock. want an iPhone 4 now?
Alternatively, if you want it now, click here or visit your local Orange shop to get the iPhone 4 Black 16GB or 32GB today. Best wishes
This could just be a ploy by Orange to get those wavering about their purchase to buy what is available now. But that seems unlikely. What is not known is if this is simply an estimate by Orange, or a message that has come to them from Apple.
The UK is typically one of the first markets outside the US to get any new Apple gear. So if supplies there are not coming online until 2011, then that probably means that the US is unlikely to see white iPhone 4s in any considerable number before then either. And most other countries have an even longer wait ahead of them.
Are you still holding out for a White iPhone 4? How are you doing? Thinking that perhaps black is not so bad now?
Do let us know in the comments…
