"iPhone 4 is the biggest leap since the original iPhone," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "FaceTime video calling sets a new standard for mobile communication, and our new Retina display is the highest resolution display ever in a phone, with text looking like it does on a fine printed page. We have been dreaming about both of these breakthroughs for decades."

The feature highlights of the iPhone 4 are the 3.5 inch Retina display has 960 x 640 pixels, the 9.3mm thinness and the two camera system.
The new 5MP main camera is able to record HD video and with the iMovie app you can edit and publish video on the go.

FaceTime video conferencing on the iPhone 4 is as mobile as your phone, so you can see your loved ones and friends anywhere there is Wi-Fi. Using FaceTime is as easy as making a regular voice call, with no set-up required, and you can instantly switch to the rear camera to show others what you are seeing with just a tap.

The iPhone 4 has a built-in 3-axis gyro that when combined with the accelerometer provides 6-axis motion sensing such as up and down, side to side, forward and backward and pitch and roll, making it perfect for gaming.

The new iPhone 4 is setting new standards for other smartphone makers. Apple did not talk about the battery life of the iPhone 4, which most likely means it is not too great.

iPhone 4 comes in either black or white and will be available in the US for a suggested retail price of $199 (US) for the 16GB model and $299 (US) for the 32GB model in both Apple and AT&T's retail and online stores, Best Buy and Wal-Mart stores. iPhone 4 will be available in the US, France, Germany, Japan and the UK on June 24th and customers can pre-order their iPhone 4 beginning Tuesday, June 15th from the Apple Online Store or reserve an iPhone 4 to pick up at an Apple Retail Store. iMovie for iPhone will be available on the App Store for just $4.99 (US).

Also on June 24th, a new iPhone 3GS 8GB model will be available for just $99 (US). iOS 4 software will be available on June 21st as a free software update via iTunes 9.2 or later for iPhone and iPod touch customers.

iPhone 4 will roll out worldwide to 88 countries by the end of September. iPhone 4 will be available by the end of July in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
