iPhone 4, a Category 9 hurricane,will make landfall in the U.S. on June 24 and is expected to cause widespread destruction to the wallets of millions of Americans.
Available in black or white, the new iPhones with Apple’s new iOS 4.0 will cost $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model (with a two-year contract, of course).
Our two-year contract with AT&T ends next month.
Most likely, we’ll get the new iPhone although we’re not too happy about the new AT&T data plan restrictions (they got rid of the unlimited option and we’re not sure if we’ll be grandfathered under the old terms in the new contract).
The user experience with the iPhone is decent. Hey, there’s even a dedicated WordPress blog app for the iPhone.
Of course, like all cheapo desis we think the phone and the monthly charges are a ripoff.
iPhone 4 goes on sale on June 24 in the France, Germany, Japan and the UK too.
By the end of July, iPhone 4 should be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
India, you ask? Does anybody even give a flying f*ck when it lands there? 😉
Apple expects to roll out iPhone 4 to 88 countries by the end of September.
Thin, Thinner, Thinnest
iPhone 4 comes with a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, HD video recording, Apple’s A4 processor, a 3-axis gyro and up to 40% longer talk time in a jazzy thin glass and stainless steel design.
Apple claims that at 9.3 millimeters the iPhone 4 is the thinnest smartphone ever. Dunno about this claim. In any case, we’re not that much into thin.
Like all desis, we’re tempted more by the fleshy, voluptuous things. 😉
Supported by Apple’s new iOS 4 mobile operating system, the iPhone 4 will be a major upgrade to the current generation iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS and offer Multitasking, Folders, enhanced Mail, deeper Enterprise support and Apple’s new iAd mobile advertising platform.
Is Multitasking Really a Good Thing for iPhone OS?
