UK customers will be able to get their hands on the white iPhone 4 from Wednesday 20 April, it would appear.

The Next Web spotted a page on Three's website seemingly revealing the long-awaited launch date for the white iPhone 4, though the page was quickly taken offline.

There has been a great deal of speculation that the launch of the white iPhone 4 was imminent, with reports from the US suggesting that it would launch by the end of the month.

However, Three has jumped the gun with the white iPhone 4 before - back in January, the white iPhone 4 appeared on Three's site though the company later told Macworld that this was only a holding page.

But this week pricing and delivery information appeared briefly on Three's site, only to be hastily removed. However, the PhoneItalia website reckons that the launch date will be 26 April - that's next Tuesday.

It is thought that number of manufacturing issues have held up the release of the white iPhone 4, which was supposed to launch alongside the black iPhone 4 in July 2010, including paint that peeled under extremes of heat.

Steve Wozniak also speculated that paint was part of the problem back in January, though Woz reckoned it was letting too much light in to the body of the phone, ruining photographs and videos captured by the device's camera.
