After a year of promises, Apple's about to make good on its pledge to sell a white version of the iPhone 4.

"The white iPhone 4 has finally arrived and it's beautiful," Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, said today in a statement. "We appreciate everyone who has waited patiently while we've worked to get every detail right."

That was a master understatement. The product was originally supposed to be available last year, one month after the black iPhone 4 debuted in June 2010. But production problems forced Apple to push back the debut date to later in the year, a deadline it similarly missed. But for anyone who has held out until now, the units will retail for $199 and $299 for the 16GB and 32GB models, respectively. The device will be available from Apple's online store, Apple's retail stores, AT&T and Verizon Wireless stores, as well as from select Apple authorized resellers. Have at it.
