Wow, I feel so looped out that I didn't even realize the WWDC keynote took place today: Steve Jobs introduces iPhone 4: "The Biggest Thing to Happen to iPhone Since iPhone." (huh?)
The new phone runs on iOS 4 (no "phone" in the name, just like the company is now called simply "Apple" sans "Computer.") Over 100 new features, including:
- thinnest iPhone yet, more square-shaped, 24% thinner and with a steel frame that acts as an antenna, glass face
- Retina display shows 326 pixels per inch (so much clearer for reading)
- 5 megapixel camera with 5x digital zoom, LED flash, front-facing camera, and the ability to record HD video
- longer battery life (7 hours talk, 6 hours 3G browsing, 10 hours wi-fi browsing, 40 hours of music
Turthfully, the new iPhone looks amazing...I might have to get one once I'm eligible for an upgrade. However, the big question remains: will the iPhone remain an AT&T exclusive device? Because, despite all the great newness of iPhone 4, I don't know if I can commit to two more years of craptastic reception.
iPhone 4: $199 16GB / $299 32GB / $99 for iPhone 3GS
