Tip gives firmer date for iPhone 4 world debut

Apple's wider international launch of the iPhone 4 has been penned in for July 23, according to an Electronista tipster. A source at a major Canadian carrier has the launch marked for that Friday, which would be consistent with the talk of a later July release date for the extra 18 countries involved. The contact warned that the date could move up if other carriers did the same, but Apple has rarely put launches across different dates for providers in a single country.

The rumor isn't yet confirmed but is supported by statements attributed Steve Jobs that there would be no Canadian delay due to the iPhone 4's very strong sales in the US, Japan and a few key European countries. Worries have been raised ever since the iPad's original international ship date was pushed back a month just days before it was originally supposed to be released in late April.

Apple may have its best summer quarter for iPhones yet if it can keep production levels increasing for the wider debut, as it has already managed 1.7 million iPhones in its first wave and will be reaching a number of countries where iPhone penetration is high, such as South Korea.

    Excellent!!

    Not that I'm going to be in line on the 24th mind you. I'm still on track for upgrading in December. However I want the iP4 to come out, the initial rush to go by, any bugs to be patched, and stocks to be refreshed. Then I'll go in and calmly see who is offering the best holiday special.

    My fear was that if Canada didn't see the iP4 until September, October, or even later I would have to fight the mobs for one.
