Orange France lists €20 premium
The white iPhone 4 could potentially cost buyers extra, listings at Orange France suggest. Pages on the carrier's website already depict 16 and 32GB white models, even though Apple has yet to announce the color as a shipping option. Orange is notably applying a €20 premium, for instance raising the cost of a 32GB phone from €299 to €319 on a two-year contract.
Delayed since the launch of the iPhone 4, the white option is finally believed to be on the verge of becoming reality. Listings have begun appearing on other carrier pages around the world, including Germany, the US and the UK. A Japanese report claims that Apple has turned to a new kind of paint material to solve problems causing large numbers of defective white units.
