Dock, non-black bumpers only due July 2nd
In tandem with the beginning of iPhone 4 pre-orders, Apple has also begun taking pre-orders on first-party accessories for the device. Some important gear will not be ready for the June 24th launch event however; a new dock, priced at $29, is only expected to ship on July 2nd. The dock is listed as exclusively compatible with the iPhone 4.
A similar delay is affecting Apple's $29 bumpers, as only the black option will be available on the 24th. All other colors -- white, pink, orange, green and blue -- will ship on July 2nd. Customization appears to be an initial issue with the iPhone 4, as buyers will not even be able to get versions with white backs for the first few weeks.
