Actualidad iPhone reports [Google translation] that Spanish mobile carrier Movistar has issued a series of tweets indicating that the iPhone 4 is set to launch there on Wednesday, July 28th.

While we can't say for certain that the announcement is anything more than speculation, as the Movistar representative does say that there is "no guarantee", the tweets do suggest that the device should be available by that date barring any unforeseen news or issues receiving stock. Furthermore, the representative notes with tongue in cheek that not even Steve Jobs knows the pricing information yet.

Apple launched the iPhone 4 in the United States, UK, France, Germany, and Japan on June 24th and has announced that it is planning to launch in an additional 18 countries "by the end of July": Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

That date works for a white iPhone4 release right?... that is it's after the 30-day window for returning your pre-ordered black iPhone4 so you can get a white one.

I hope they are sold directly from store.apple.com or how else could it be available simultaneously in all those countries.

This is pretty cool of MoviStar to do. I wish more corporations would use Twitter this way.

To loosely translate the tweets the second one asks what if the date is not guranteed do you still want to know or should we wait until its a firm date?

The last one says by an overwhelming vote, if there are no delays, issues with stock or other issues the phone will be release July 28th, not even Jobs knows this :)

If that's actually what's he's trying to say then, I wouldn't put too much stock in any of this. If Steve Jobs doesn't know, then I think it would be fairly obvious that a carrier wouldn't know. As far as I know, Apple has been the hold up in terms of announcing specifics in terms of the July launch in other countries.

How can they release in MORE countries if they barely have enough iPhones in stock at the moment?? There's a 3 week wait time for ordering from Apple UK Online store....

So 2nd half of July is the 28th...
Well I think I'll wait a while to buy one. Want to see how the reception problems will work out on the networks here. Not to mention the proximity sensor thingy.

This is ridiculous. Today I asked for an iphone 4 in apple store in Paris and they said "ALL THE IPHONES WERE SOLD OUT THE FIRST DAY 24 JUN, AND SINCE THEN THERE ARE NO IPHONES IN APPLE STORES IN FRANCE". I got shocked and upset :( :mad: :eek:
Dear Stupid Apple, you can not even make enough supply for current 5 countries, how the hell are you going to expand your service??? :confused: :mad:
