The iPhone 4 is pretty much what we expected it to be
I was speaking to a friend in the evening today and told him that if the new iPhone is what I expect it to be, I wont be rushing out the door to buy one. And it looks like after Mr. Jobs revealed the new iPhone 4, it was pretty much what we were expecting to to be. The design looks good and it will be available in black and white but was what was leaked out. The Antennas on the side might be a good idea. Inside, as predicted the iPhone 4 has an A4 CPU and a 3,5″ screen with an incredible resolution of 960×640. I had also mentioned that I wont be surprised if the onboard storage remains at 32GB which seems to be the case. Finally, check that 5MP camera along with a front facing camera from our predictions as well.
The only thing that makes me curious about iPhone 4 is the built-in gyroscope which will certainly make some interesting gaming moments. Video chatting was the ‘one more thing’ but looks like Apple doesnt realize that we’ve had that over a 3G network for quite some time in this part of the world. Everything else is more iOS related and my 3G should be capable of handling that well. While Apple has announced a 40% increased in battery efficiency, the new features will probably put a drain 40% faster and you’ll end up with similar battery life.
iPhone 4 will be available in the US on 24th of June bu dont expect an official release in the UAE until at least September.
