Well, hello there! Looks like the iPhone 4 is now up and ready for your pre-orders on Apple’s website. Actually it’s only the black version at the moment, while whitish flavor is set for later this month. Prices are at $199 (16GB) and $299 (32GB) in the US (with a 2 years contract), while Britons can get their own piece of mobile craft – SIM FREE – for £499 (16GB) or £599 (32GB). Only two pieces per customer.
Update1: Apparently, Canadian users will be able to buy a SIM FREE iPhone as well, from carriers like Rogers, Bell, or Telus. Way to go Apple!
Update2: And after Apple’s unsteady servers collapsed, turns out that iPhone 4 pre-orders are sold out! both in Apple and AT&T. Next shipping is scheduled for July 2. Here’s AT&T’s official statement:
“Because of the incredible interest in iPhone 4, today was the busiest online sales day in AT&T history. As of Tuesday afternoon, customers who preorder iPhone 4 moving forward will receive their device on June 25 or later, depending on when the order is placed. We’ll email customers with confirmation once their order is placed, and again when it ships. In addition, we will have devices available on a first-come, first-serve basis in our stores beginning on June 24.”
Update3: Apple says that white iPhone 4 devices won’t be available until second half of July due to “proven more challenging to manufacture than expected.” Here’s the official statement:
White models of Apple’s new iPhone® 4 have proven more challenging to manufacture than expected, and as a result they will not be available until the second half of July. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.
