iPhone 4 in white is now available
The new iPhone 4 will be available in the U.S. and 27 other countries, including Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and the U.K., at prices of $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB smartphone with a two-year service contract. This will give some people the excuse to buy an iPhone ahead of the iPhone 5.
It is estimated that the white iPhone 4 will boost sales of Apple’s smartphone by 1 to 1.5 million units per quarter, at least until the next-generation iPhone appears.
The white iPhone 4 looks good. It looks like an iPhone 4 but not exactly like an iPhone 4 rendered white. There’s the noticeable difference with the proximity sensor but there’s a qualitative difference about the white glass overall as well. Where the black iPhone 4 looks like its made of black glass, the white iPhone 4 looks like its coated in white glass. It’s a subtle difference but it’s noticeable around the edges. It could be something to do with achieving opacity with the white color, a UV coating made necessary to protect the color, or something that’s just more apparent with the white iPhone 4, it’s there.
It’s consistent though. The white iPhone 4 is uniformly white, the same shade of white, from back to front, and from plate to home button.
