Apple intro’s the new iPhone4…..

Steve Jobs introduced the phone today……

While demoing the new iPhone4 he had to suffer thru a wait for the wifi service to come up…..

Seems it was overloaded….

Anyways the new Apple iPhone ships on June 24…and Apple hopes it blunts the sales of the new droid phone…..

Which is being heavly advertised……

Here’s some 411 on the new Apple phone…..


The Apple iPhone 4 is everything that a new piece of technology should be: It’s innovative, attractive, andahead of its competition. In comparison, previous iPhone upgrades seem inconsequential–that’s how much iPhone 4 brings to the table.

The phone will ship on June 24, priced at $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model (in white or black).

Premium Look

I spent some hands-on time with the new handset at the Apple event. I’ll start with the visuals: It’s stylish. Whereas the iPhone 3GS looks and feels plasticky, the iPhone 4 is svelte and has a premium feel. Surprisingly, it achieves that impression while retaining the same general design, although the edges appear a bit more squared than before.

It’s noticeably slimmer than the iPhone 3GS, measuring 0.37 inch deep versus the iPhone 3GS’s thickness of 0.48 inch (that translates to 2 percent less). The iPhone 4 is also slightly narrower, 2.31 inches to 2.44 inches. The weight stays the same at 4.8 ounces, but the tweaks to the dimensions make the current iPhone 3GS seem downright kludgy in comparison. (See all iPhone 4 specs.)

However, it’s the aesthetic design touches that make the iPhone 4 stand out. The overall design screams elegance–from the rounded, individual volume up and down buttons that replace the plastic volume rocker on the iPhone 3GS to the ring/silent switch and the power/sleep button up top. The face and back are made of glass that is specially treated to withstand scratches and oily fingers, according to Apple. The side edging is aluminum, and doubles as the device’s three cellular and wireless antennas.

Sharp Display

Of course, the iPhone 4 isn’t just about cosmetic enhancements, pleasing as they are. What makes this phone such a technological improvement is what’s inside the handset.

Like its predecessor, the iPhone 4 has a 3.5-inch display. But the new phone’s display doubles the resolution to a 960-by-640-pixel IPS display. At 326 pixels per inch, this is the highest resolution available on a phone to date.

That display truly makes a difference. Whereas the iPhone 3GS’s text–in the menus, in apps, or on Web pages–appears thick, fuzzy, and undefined, the iPhone 4’s text is razor sharp, even when enlarged (as I tried doing when viewing a PDF)…..
