Apple must be kicking itself at the moment, with it’s loyal followers still asking about the release of the white iPhone 4? The company has got to be thinking, “why did we mention a white iPhone in the first place?” At the moment, the only confirmation that a white 4 exists is from the picture on Apple’s on-line store. If they had just released the black version (the popular choice), then a problem would not have arisen.
Added to this, is the issue with Verizon, which on initial release back in 2007 was not available alongside AT&T. Beatweek commented, that in hindsight Apple should never have got into a position where Verizon and Sprint saw themselves more as iPhone competitors instead of iPhone partners. If Apple had run with these carriers concurrently from day one, sales of the handset could have doubled across the U.S. by now.
Apple’s judgement errors can only have boosted sales of iPhone’s competition, with would-be subscribers choosing Verizon’s Droid or Sprint’s EVO.
So with Apple seemingly digging itself a hole, will the release of the white iPhone 4 be enough to get back on track? Give us your thoughts. Check out more on this at BeatWeek
