- Today the iPhone 4 has officially been unveiled by Steve Jobs
at Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco, California.
Details are still coming in, but below are some highlights for the 4th generation iPhone thus far, to quote:
• It's real: the iPhone 4 (the official name) is as expected, with a new case design.
• The new phone has the thinner, squared-off design we've seen in the leaked photos of the device, redesigned buttons, a front-facing camera, a flash on the rear camera, a secondary microphone for noise cancellation, and improved antennas integrated right into the design. 26% thinner than the iPhone 3GS: The thinnest smartphone ever, according to Jobs.
• As rumored, 960 x 640 pixels of resolution on the 3.5-inch display. That's unheard of on a cell phone and actually approaches what most smaller laptops have. 78% of the pixels that the iPad has.
• iPhone is now powered by Apple's A4 chip. Battery is bigger, and Jobs promises 40% more talk time than before (great news). 32GB of storage standard (no upgrade vs. the 3GS). And support for 7.2Mbps networks... once AT&T supports it.
• Internal accelerometer features are also upgraded to add a gyroscope to the mix. It's a little wonky, but now the phone will...
