While we noted earlier today that preparations are moving full speed ahead for a debut of the white iPhone 4 within the next day or two and shipments making their way to retail stores, some retailers have jumped the gun and begun selling units to customers. Once such case popped up late last week in the UK through Vodafone, although the carrier apparently quickly clamped down on the rogue sale. But with more shipments now on location at retail stores, the premature sales are likely to occur with greater frequency.




One MacRumors reader wrote in today to say that he had just purchased a white iPhone 4 through a Mobistar retail shop in Antwerp, Belgium. According to the reader, the white iPhones are already available for general sale to all customers.




As in other recent photos, the final version of the white iPhone 4 carries a redesigned proximity sensor area on the front panel, utilizing a relatively large, lozenge-shaped area above the earpiece as opposed to the grille of small holes seen in early designs.

Hard to believe it's actually real.

But man, it does look great.

here and there but not over there
can we just copy all the comments from the previous white iphone thread from earlier today over to this one ... don't think anyone has something new to say about it since not much time passed. - or maybe a summary of the comments?

Blah...

Not that my opinion matters but I just do not find it appealing (spically with the sensor at the top...

I am curious how many they are going to sell with a refresh anwhere from 3 to 6 months away...

They're going to sell a crap load. Thinking otherwise is simply foolish.

Pretty sure he's in a parking lot and parked, buddy.

I think he may be right. I've never seen a parking lot with rows of cars parallel parked.

Edit: Although I do not see brake lights engaged on most of the cars.

Did you notice the double slots at the top?

Did you notice the double slots at the top where the front facing camera and ear speaker are?
I wonder what that is for. My Black iPhone 4 does not have that.

It's stated in the article:

Aren't these phones like a year late?

Gotta expect people from Apple are on the phone to that store right now giving them an earful. :D

Either that - or they are really good at driving to be so close without hitting the brakes (ie no brake lights are on in the photo) :rolleyes:

With only four fingers they can be pretty nimble behind the wheel.

I just called an AT&T location in midtown Manhattan and requested a white iPhone 4... the employee put me hold for a few seconds and then informed me that "the white iPhone 4 will be available beginning tomorrow morning". :apple:

I'm sorry... it's just ugly. Now, if the screen defaulted to a matching white as well then perhaps it'd look better. In the meantime I'll stick to the black monolithic unit.
