The iPhone 4 design is dynamic and completely different from the earlier iPhone devices. Apple has redesigned this device to be 24% slimmer than iPhone 3G. With body thickness of 9.3mm, the new device features Apple’s stunning new Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, resulting in super crisp text, images and video. iPhone 4 also features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD video recording, Apple’s A4 processor, a 3-axis gyro and up to 40 percent longer talk time—in a beautiful all-new design of glass and stainless steel that is the thinnest smartphone in the world. iPhone 4 comes with iOS 4, the newest version of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, which includes over 100 new features. The revolutionary App Store provides access to more than 200,000 apps including the new iMovie app built just for iPhone 4.

iPhone 4 requires a special SIM, different from the ones used in other regular mobile devices. Etisalat has been the first in the region to offer this customized SIM, micro SIM, which is compatible with iPhone 4 and Apple’s iPad. Customers will be offered the flexibility to exchange their existing SIM cards or get an additional new Etisalat micro SIM card for their iPhone 4 devices. It is available at the same price and specification as the regular SIM card, but in a customized size.

For more information, customers can visit or call customer care at 101.

Editor’s Note: The press release was amended to include the revised iPhone 3GS 8GB plan which were mistakenly written as iPhone 4 8GB.
