Apple just announced that, in the first day of iPhone 4 pre-orders, when all was said and done they had 600,000 units reserved. All of a sudden it becomes crystal clear why people had problems placing an order for the new Apple smartphone, seemingly from the moment it went on sale all the way through…well…right now. Demand for the iPhone 4 is seemingly about ten times higher than what we saw for the iPhone 3GS. Both Apple and AT&T are sold out of day one pre-orders, so if you want to be certain that you’ll get an iPhone 4 on June 24th, you are going to want to line up at one of the other third-party retailers selling iPhone 4 at launch.
Yesterday, we noted that none of the third-party stores that would be carrying iPhone 4 on launch day would have any of the white iPhone 4 models for sale. We figured that Apple was likely keeping the white ones to themselves, since they didn’t have enough of them to go around. However, now that the iPhone 4 pre-order page is up, things look even more grim for anyone who was hoping to score a white iPhone 4 on day one. Even Apple isn’t allowing you to pre-order a white iPhone 4 for delivery or in-store pickup. So, if you want the iPhone 4 on June 24th, you’ll have to grab a black one. Looks like the white model won’t be available until later on in the summer.
