Whether or not the rumors about the iPhone 4 headed to T-Mobile USA turn out to be true, here's another buzzworthy item that appears almost certain: the iPhone 4 in white is headed to Best Buy this week.

After months of delays and almost silence on Apple's part, news about the all-but-forgotten white version of the iPhone 4 popped back up on the radar. Bloomberg reported earlier in April that the Cupertino giant was ready to start shipping the alternative exterior option by the end of this month.

Fast forward to the present, and 9 to 5 Mac has published what look like leaked inventory screenshots revealing that Best Buy's "in stock date" for the iPhone 4 in white (at least the 16GB option) as April 27th. It's not clear if that is either the AT&T or Verizon model (or both). Considering that the white iPhone 4 has already been slated for launches in the United Kingdom with Vodafone and elsewhere in Europe on multiple carriers, it seems that this lighter version of the iPhone 4 might finally see store shelves soon.

Again, given how long we've been waiting for this smartphone, I won't believe this until I see it, which will hopefully turn out to be this Thursday.

    Didn't NeNe on Celebrity Apprentice have a white iPhone 4 on 4/24's show? Sure looked like it.

    So what does Apple need to do to win the hearts of the lower-salaried Chinese? How about a special Chinese edition iPhone with very little memory and a low-price tag? 30% iPhone market share allows 50% Android and 20% Symbian market share. Can Foxconn even manage to make that many iPhones for Apple as what the China market share might require?
