Apple has once again updated its U.S. Online Store to reflect improved shipment wait times for the iPhone 4. According to the store’s iPhone page, new iPhone 4 units—both the 16GB and 32GB models—now ship “within 24 hours,” down from the previous estimate of 1-3 days. Apple first reduced the estimated wait time on new online iPhone 4 orders in the U.S. from three weeks to 5-7 days in early October, dropping it again in the interim to 1-3 days. The drop in wait times for the iPhone 4 appears to be unique to the U.S., however, as estimates from international stores such as Canada, U.K., France, and Germany remain at 1-2 weeks, depending on the country.

It’s a shipment wait time far better than in Brazil, where 4 (four) operators (OI, TIM, VIVO and CLARO) announces iPhone 4 with no one single unit in their shelves from almost two months by now. Here, in Brazil, you go to your operator, let your name, cel number and e-mail in a wait list and pray to be called. I am waiting for just 45 days on my operator (OI), and, believe if you want, here an 32gb model costs around US$ 1.300,00 (for just the phone, not included the cel plan). Here, if you want an iPhone 4 you need to go to Mercado Livre (it’s like ebay), and pay around US$ 2.000,00 for an iPhone, usually sold personally by those operators employers… Yes, I know what you that are reading it is thinking… and I agree, it’s a big shame, nothing more, nothing less.
