Score one for AT&T in what has otherwise been a month that’s been all about that other iPhone carrier: the Mophie Juice Pack Plus battery case for iPhone 4, which was Beatweek Magazine’s Best iPhone 4 Battery Case of 2010, has just gone on sale in AT&T retail stores. The Plus nicely doubles your iPhone 4 battery life, while doubling as a ruggedized rubber case which isn’t too much thicker than a non-battery case. We pass this along both because it’s our weapon of choice (along with the slightly svelter Juice Pair Air 4, which was our co-winner) and because it’s a reminder that, at least for now, the AT&T side of the iPhone 4 fence still has one thing going for it: cases, battery cases, and other perfectly form-fitting accessories are actually compatible. Here’s more on the Mophie Juice Pack Plus and here’s where you can buy it.
iPhone 4 will be available starting at the nearly pre-dawn time of seven o’clock in the morning on June 24th at AT&T stores, which comes as good news for those planning to camp out all night as it means they’ll only have to keep their eyes open until 7:00 am as opposed to a later door-opening time such as 10:00am. It’s also a marked shift away from the original iPhone launch in 2007, which saw the device go on sale in the early evening, with enthusiasts camping out all day in the summer sun. Apple has more recently shifted to morning launches, with the iPad seeing all-night campers before going on sale at daybreak. AT&T stores will also see employees wearing T-shirts which bizarrely integrate Apple’s long-ago phased out rainbow logo motif into AT&T’s own current logo; perhaps AT&T failed to get the memo about the fact that Apple’s logo has been single-color for a decade.
