White iPhone 4 to Launch on April 26th


Last week Apple confirmed that it is going to finally launch the white iPhone 4 very soon this spring. Apple did not mention any specific date. Multiple sources pegged the release by the end of April. Italian iPhone site iPhoneItalia is stating that, according to a "reliable source," the white iPhone 4 will launch in Italy on Tuesday April 26th. Earlier  Bloomberg confirmed that the white iPhone 4 would be shipping by the end of April. Recently white iPhone 4 part numbers began appearing in Verizon's inventory. If iPhoneItalia's sources are correct, the US launch of the white iPhone 4 will also occur on April 26th.

White iPhone 4 to Finally Arrive By End of April


Bloomberg reports that Apple will finally deliver the long-awaited white iPhone 4 by the end of April. The publication mentions “three people familiar with the plans”, and claims the device will be available both on AT&T and Verizon in the United States.

The new version will be available from AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless by the end of April, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren't public. The release was stalled as Apple resolved manufacturing challenges, including paint that peeled under heat, one person said.

The exact reason why Apple delayed the initial June 2010 release date hasn’t been revealed by the company, but previous speculation suggested problems with the white paint caused the device to take bad photos due to light leaks. The new model obviously may help boost sales of the iPhone 4.

Federal prosecutors in New Jersey have started investigation concerning the issue with illegal obtaining and transmitting data from users their consent or knowledge through various smartphone applications. The prosecutors are investigating whether various applications on smartphones such as the iPhone and various Android phones are not notifying users what data is being collected and why such data is required by the application.
