White iPhone 4 Set For The UK

The white version of the iPhone 4 is set to be available in the UK before the end of July, technology news website Tech Watch reported on Saturday.

While addressing a press conference at the company's Cupertino headquarters, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced that the white version of the new iPhone 4 would be available in the UK in the next couple of weeks.

As demand for the iPhone 4 had vastly outstripped supply, with over 3 million handsets sold within 25 days of the launch, the white iPhone is expected to be available in very limited numbers.

Experts have speculated that the reason for the delayed launch of the white iPhone 4 might be the high demand for the original, problems in manufacturing the glass screens, and reported colour problems.

At the press conference, called by the CEO to put to rest continuing speculation about the iPhone 4's reception issues - dubbed "Antennagate" - Jobs also announced that all iPhone 4 owners will be eligible to receive a free bumper worth £25 to fix any antenna problems.
