Two months after an ace employee accidentally left a prototype at a San Jose bar, Apple has unveiled the iPhone 4G to an excited, albeit, not surprised tech community.
Rather than make sarcastic comments about the odd events leading up to the debut or documenting Steve Jobs’ evil plan to take over a small Scandinavian country (which Spike.com’s Swedish office claims is coming “very soon"), let’s simply break down some of the 100-plus new features:
• A 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording of 720p at 30 frames-per-second
• A "tap-to-focus" for video allowing users to edit videos
• LED flash that remains on during HD video recording
• An iMovie app that has been rewritten to run on the iPhone
• Front-facing camera
• A microSIM tray
• Camera with LED flash in the back
• Microphone with 30-pin connector and speaker
• Sharper display with 326 pixels per inch quality
The new iPhone is also 25 percent slimmer, which should make life a lot easier for skinny jean-wearing hipsters who are tired of bulky cell phones and ironic pagers clogging their pockets.
