AT&T Says Only Black iPhone 4 Available At Launch

Share:

So this is interesting.

ModMyi is reporting that an internal AT&T memo indicates that AT&T will only be taking pre-orders for black iPhone 4 models, with white iPhone 4 models coming “later this summer”. As many know, AT&T is the exclusive wireless carrier of the iPhone in the USA.

The internal AT&T memo, seen below, indicates that the iPhone 3GS 8GB in Black and the iPhone 4 16GB/32GB in Black will be available for sale. The white iPhone 4 in 16GB/32GB is labeled in a “Available later this summer” section.

At this time, it is unclear why this restriction may occur, but it may be likely due to a production/supply issue or that the white iPhone 4 is an Apple Store exclusive.

In any case, if the white iPhone 4 is being delayed for US and international carriers on launch day (June 24, 2010), then it is likely that Canada will feel the wrath as well.

If you were getting a white iPhone 4, will you change to the black iPhone 4?

    this news makes me really sad. it's definitely the production/supply issue if the memo is true. they don't even have enough supply for the first release. wondering if it has anything related to the foxconn issue.

    considering the huge demand of iphone 4, the late july looks like the best case scenario right now..

    Although the white one is pretty slick, I was always going to get a black one so hopefully we wont be delayed at all *fingers crossed*

    black models only from at-at …more proof they're of the dark side.

    Wow, I’m pretty surprised that AT&T made this announcement. With the removal of unlimited data plans for the iPad and their already highly criticized coverage compared with other major carriers, I don’t think I’d be making any more downer announcements if I could help it.

    I hope this is not the case for us Canadian. Even though i havent made my decision of getting the white or black one yet, having a choice is better than no choice at all.

  • Forget black, I'm waiting for Apple to bring back NEON! Like their hot Bumper cases! LOL

    I didnt' like that white before on the 3g/s because it still had black on the front, but the iphone 4 with the all white exterior looks pretty good. I was seriously considering white this time around. Hopefully they are ready by the time we get it in Canada…

    @ launch date here in Canada i was going to pre-order a black one for me and a white one for my wife. I hope they have both at launch date as i've been waiting for what seems forever for this phone.
