White iPhone 4 In Retail Packaging Picked Up Early At Vodafone UK Store

Just on the tail of news that supports an April 27th launch of the white iPhone 4, we now get photos of the actual device in its retail packaging thanks to a source from Engadget. The pictures were taken by a customer who claims to have purchased the unit from a Vodafone retail store in the UK.

The story goes that the unit was rang up at the cash register as a black iPhone 4. But, shortly after that transaction went down, Vodafone sent out a notice to halt the sale of the white smartphone. The pictures show a 16GB version with the model number MC604B/A which would suggest a 32GB version to have model number MC606B/A. This all falls in line with Apple's numbering system making this tip more legit.

The white iPhone was supposed to launch alongside the black version but has been delayed time and time again. With all the evidence cropping up lately with the Vodafone inventory list earlier today and now the white iPhone 4 in its actual retail packaging, we feel pretty certain the time is upon us, and possibly just 5 days away.
