Apple officially unveiled the new iPhone 4 yesterday. The iPhone 4 has a new design and sports a lot of new cool features. The highlights are the new 960x640px retina display, the FaceTime video conferencing, A4 CPU, HD video recording, and gyroscope sensor. Apple managed to increase the battery life by 40% and at the same time make the iPhone 4 24% thinner than the 3GS. See all iPhone 4 details here.

Yes, I will upgrade my 3GS to the iPhone 4. There are just too many new features and it is hard to find flaws in the iPhone 4.

The biggest gripe I have is the limitation of FaceTime video conferencing to Wi-Fi. Apple is apparently not to blame for this. The carriers seem to wet their pants imagining the amount of bandwidth needed to support video conferencing via 3G on the iPhone. The iPhone 4 is not changing everything again as the new iPhone slogan suggests. Cellular networks still suck and the hailed 4G networks are far from being available with decent coverage.
Apple, maybe you should take some of your cash stash and give it to the carriers to build 4G networks.
