Unless you’ve been living under a rock that happens to be under an even bigger rock then you might have heard that Apple’s announced the impending launch of its latest cash cow, the iPhone 4. I have a feeling that you probably all dashed from your computers just now to go wait in line at your local AT&T store (or are already in line, reading this page on your iPad or iPhone 3GS’s), but if you happened to stick around here’s the low-down on Apple’s new pride and joy. First up is the design, which expectantly, is drop dead sex-a-licious. Sure it doesn’t stray too far from the established iPhone design we’ve all become accustomed to, but it does now feature a more svelte profile and a glass and stainless steal body. The screen has been improved, too, and besides being damn near impossible to scratch it also sports a dramatically increased resolution to the point that Steven Wonder would stand up and take notice. The phone now has two cameras: a tiny VGA camera on the front of the phone that allows for video calling (only over Wi-Fi though, boourns) and a 5 megapixel banger on the back with :LED flash (finally) that also records 720p video at 30 fps.
On the software side the phone is running Apple’s newly renamed iOS4, which finally brings a bunch of oft requested features and a bunch of additional things over from the iPad, including (but not limited to):
- enhanced email
- user defined backgrounds
- spell check
- Bluetooth keyboard support
- playlist creation
- iMovie for video editing
- Facetime video conferencing
Of course, you’ll also have access to the gazillions of apps on the iTunes store and the gazillion more that are sure to come in the future. All of this is powered by Apple’s A4 chip, the same one found in the iPad.
As usual, two versions will be available when the iPhone 4 hits retail June 24th: a 16GB version for $199 and a 32GB one for $299, both on a 2 year contract.
