Apple iPhone 4 announced

That’s right folks. You’ve already seen it before but it’s not official. Steve Jobs has just announced the iPhone 4. More to come….(image courtesy of Engadget). The device is only 9.3mm thick and features a super high resolution 3.5″ display composed of 326 pixels per inch… 960×640, 800:1 contrast and IPS panel. The iPhone 4 features the Apple A4 SoC found in the iPad and will feature up to 32gb of storage. The device also has a 5Mpix camera with backlit sensor and LED flash and is capableof shotting 720P videos at 30fps. THe other new features a the inclusion of a 3-axis Gyroscope.

iPhone OS 4 has now been renamed iOS 4. iOS is now a platform just like OSX. Many new iOS based deviecees will probably come out of Apple in the coming years (devices other than Tablets and Phones..). Bing is now a search engine option alongside Yahoo and Google (still default). The iPhone will also featur video chat but only through Wifi. It will be available in Black & White for $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB launching June 2′th (pre-orders start June 15th)

That’s for now. Will post my thoughts later tonight.

Ready for the Next Generation iPhone 4 ?

I usually don’t post about Apple related news here and am mainly focused on Windows Phone 7 and Android lately but every-time Apple announces a new product there’s no denying that it has a massive impact on the industry. That’s why I’ll probably post some thoughts later on about the new iPhone HD or iPhone 4G (if that’s the name..) some of the other announcement that Steve Jobs is going to make in less than an hour at WWDC in San Fransisco. It’s also highly probable that I will get my hands-on the new device once its released (it’s always good to know what you are talking about especially when you are mainly focused on the competition).
