After Apple's initial launch of the iPhone 4 in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan last month, the next batch of 18 countries set to receive the iPhone 4 were told to expect a release "by the end of July." Spanish carrier Movistar may have just spilled the beans, however, with a recent tweet about the new iPhone. The Movistar rep said that the carrier should be launching the iPhone 4 on July 28th, which makes sense as long as there are no supply issues or other problems. However, the rep also mentioned that there is "no guarantee" with this date.
Considering July 28th is only a few days away from the end of July, I hope that Apple will launch the iPhone 4 around that date. If not, they'll have to face some angry customers. An iPhone 4 order placed with Apple today will take up to three weeks to deliver, so they had better have plenty of stock ready for the international demand. We've seen huge lines for previous international iPhone launches, and I'm sure the iPhone 4 won't be any different.
