Got word from one of the reps from Globe last night that the white variant of the iPhone 4 will be available in the Philippines this week-end. Now that’s fast.
No specifics were given if it’s going to be Saturday or Sunday (but I guess it will be Saturday) but you will definitely be able to see and get one this week-end. The price of the white variant will be the same as the black one.
Globe Telecom is the exclusive distributor of the iPhone 4 in the Philippines.
Update: Here’s the copy of the official press release:
Globe Telecom announced that it will bring the white model of iPhone 4 to subscribers in the Philippines, after launching the earlier black version in September of last year.
