It's certainly been a long time coming, but the white iPhone 4 is finally almost here. Apple just announced that the frosty white handset will be coming tomorrow, April 28th, in both Verizon and AT&T flavors. Even though it's been nearly a year since the device was actually introduced, though, don't expect any sort of reduction in price; the 16GB model will still be cost $199.99, while the 32GB version will set you back $299.99. You can check out the full press release from Apple below.
It seems kind of strange that it's taken Apple this long to release a white version of the same phone that's been around since June of last year, but the good news is that the wait is finally almost over. Now we can see exactly how many people have ignored the allure of the black iPhone 4 and the Verizon iPhone, all just so that they could wait for a white version of Apple's latest handset. Are you one of them?
