It is not often that Apple has to apologize for failing to prepare and produce a product on time but that's exactly what they've done with the iPhone 4. Apple today posted a statement apologizing for the delay of the white iPhone 4.

You can view the full statement on Apple's site here:

Some early iPhone 4 reviews are in from those media bods lucky enough to get their hands on it, and PC World has a handy round-up of some of the main points so far. Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal has been testing the iPhone 4 for over a week and says that it represents a "major leap" in hardware and software over the iPhone 3GS, adding that the phone's most significant minus point is its tie-in with AT&T.

Ed Baig of USA Today is quoted by PC World as saying that "Apple makes all the right calls on iPhone 4", and he gives special mention to FaceTime video calling. Engadget's Joshua Topolsky states boldly that the iPhone 4 is "the best smartphone on the market right now", citing the "gorgeous" new hardware and "amazing" display.

Tesco Mobile has today announced its iPhone 4 pricing, including a surprise 12-month tariff, Pocket Gamer reports. According to Pocket Gamer, the prices are slightly cheaper than those already announced by 02, Orange and Vodafone, with the iPhone 4 and a package including unlimited minutes and texts setting you back £19 on a £45-per-month, 24-month contract, which is £10 cheaper and better minutes value than Vodafone's £29-iPhone 4 plus 1200 minutes package on a £45-per-month, 24-month contract.

However, what makes Tesco Mobile an extremely competitive option is the fact that it's offering a 12-month contract, unlike any other carrier to date. For a £20-per-month, 12-month contract, you can expect to pay £349 for the 16GB model and £429 for the 32GB model, with...

Susteen has today announced that its Mobile Genie cell phone data migration tool used by cellular stores to transfer information from one phone to the next at the wireless points of sale now supports iPhone 4, making it the first tool of its kind to do so.

Daniel, Digital Specialist for AT&T, gives customers a breakdown of what will happen to customers who did not pre-order iPhone 4's in time for launch. Basically, you will have to wait until June 29th to purchase your new device.

Customers who do order(and who pre-order) will receive a call from AT&T when your iPhone 4 is ready for pick up. They do not want customers to camp out or stand in line in front of their stores because they do not want dissappointed customers.


For all you people who didn't pre-order, camping out in front of the Apple store is your best bet.

Good Luck.

What they found is that the iPhone 4 glass is protected by the mighty Gorilla Glass!

Here are a few guidelines for customers buying iPhone 4 from AT&T:

It's been 1 day since Apple released iOS 4. For those of us that have been waiting for a Jailbreak to update, wait no more!

The Dev-Team has released PwnageTool 4.0 for iOS 4. Everything is self explanatory in the program but you are going to want to read the patch notes below first.

Unfortunately for us Windows users, no PwnageTool for us, yet. But if the routine continues, we should be seeing a Windows jailbreak in a few days.

It looks like some lucky users have already been receiving their iPhone 4 shipments, if you happen to be one of these lucky members please let us know in the comments.

Unlike the iPad deliveries it appears that Apple didn't do anything special to make sure that units didn't arrive early. We all know how secretive Apple can be and the fact that they strike deals with the shippers to guarantee no one gets it early... in this case though these appear to be arriving from China, via FedEx not UPS.

I think when Apple wants to guarantee that no one gets it early they ship via UPS and stake out guards at the large hubs to ensure no early deliveries.

Anyway, who's got theirs?!
